The Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) , first published in 1969, is designed to help economists keep abreast of the vast flow of literature.  JEL issues contain commissioned, peer-reviewed survey and review articles, book reviews, an annotated bibliography of new books classified by subject matter, and an annual index of dissertations in North American universities.
