Authors should adhere strictly to the author instructions for submission. Papers that do not adhere to the instructions will not enter the reviewing process.

The authors should state the funding source for the research presented in the paper in a footnote on the first page.
Papers must be submitted in Microsoft Word format, using Times New Roman font (size 10,5 regular), in Latin alphabet, normal character spacing and single paragraph spacing (before: 0 pt, after: 0 pt, line spacing: single). Page setup:
- Paper size: C5 (16 cm x 23 cm).
- Margins: top 2 cm; bottom 1,5 cm; left 1,65 cm; right 1,65 cm.
- Indentation: left 0 cm, right 0 cm, special: first line, 1 cm.

Paper title and author(s). Title should be as concise as possible. Author's name and institution should follow the title. Behind the name of the author(s), a footnote should be inserted containing e-mail address(es) of the author(s), as well as an identification (by an asterisk) for the corresponding author. The papers should be submitted by a maximum of three authors for the current issues and four authors for the special issues of the journal.

Summary. Summary, with the length of 50-150 words, should be at the beginning of the paper. At the end of the summary, key words should be included (up to five key words). At least one classification code to the Classification System for the Journal Articles, as used by the Journal of Economic Literature (JEL), should be included.

Reference to individuals in the text should include the first name, middle initial, and last name on first reference. Subsequent references should include last name only. Do NOT use titles such as Mister, Doctor, Professor, etc. For example: Alan S. Blinder (2006) [first reference], Blinder (2006) [subsequently].

Organizations or governmental agencies in the text. On first references use the full name followed by the abbreviation in parentheses. Subsequent references should use abbreviation only. For example: Social Science Research Council (SSRC) [first reference], SSRC [subsequently].

Reference to articles and books in the text. Give full name (first name, middle initial, and last name) of author(s) and year of publication in the first citation, with page number(s) where appropriate. For example: Glenn Firebaugh (1999) [first reference]; Firebaugh (1999) [subsequently]; Andrea Boltho and Gianni Toniolo (1999) [first reference], Boltho and Toniolo (1999) [subsequently]; Albert Berry, Francois Bourguignon, and Christian Morrisson (1983) [first reference], Berry, Bourguignon, and Morrisson (1983) [subsequently]. When more than one work by the same author is cited, give the last name of author and year of publication in parentheses for each subsequent citation. When listing a string of references within the text, arrange first in chronological order, then alphabetically within years. If there are four or more authors, refer to the first author, followed by et al. and the year; for example: Stefan Folster et al. (1998). If there is more than one publication referred to in the same year by the author(s), use the year and a, b, etc. (example: 1997a, b). References to authors in the text must exactly match those in the Reference section.

Quotations. Any quotation, regardless of its length, needs to be followed by reference including page number. For any quotation longer than 350 characters, an author must have written approval by copy rights owner that needs to be enclosed.

Tables, charts, and pictures. Tables must be made in Word or a Word compatible format (tables should be transferred into Word format). Same data may not be presented both in tables and charts. Every table, chart, or picture should be appropriately numbered and named, e.g.: Table 2 The Reliability of the Variables.
Figures, graphs, pictures, etc. will not be redrawn by the publisher; they should be high-quality GRAYSCALE graphics (please, do NOT use colors): vector drawings with text converted to curves (cdr, ai) or 300 dpi bitmaps (jpg, tiff). Please do not supply any graphics copied from a website, as the resolution will be too low. Each picture, figure, graph, etc. should be in a separate file.
Tables, pictures, graphs, formulas, etc. should NOT extend beyond the margins. The maximum space available for tables, figures, pictures, graphs, etc. is 12,5 cm (width) x 18 cm (height).

If an illustration from a printed source is used, written authorization from the copyright owner is required. Sources should be placed below tables, charts, and pictures. References in the source are used in the same way as in the text. If the tables, charts, and figures are author calculations, reviews or estimations, that should also be emphasized.

Statistics. The results of statistical tests need to be provided in the following form: F (1.9) =25.35; p<.001 or similar. Lower number of conventional P levels should be stated (e.g.: .05, .01, .001). Formulas should be created using Microsoft Equation Editor. The maximum width of formulas should not exceed 12 cm.

References. Panoeconomicus use AEA rules for references. Reference section must be single-spaced, beginning on a new page following the text, giving full information. Use full names of authors or editors using initials only if that is the usage of the particular author/editor. List all author/editors up to/ including 10 names. Authors of articles and books and material without specific authors or editors, such as government documents, bulletins, or newspapers, are to be listed alphabetically. All references in the Reference section should be referenced (included) in the text.

The DOI number should be added at the end of each paper used in reference, if available. Please use the following link to look up this information:http://www.crossref.org/guestquery/
For example:
Arestis, Philip, Carolina Troncoso Baltar, and Daniela Magalháes Prates. 2016. "Brazilian Economic Performance since the Emergence of the Great Recession: The Effects of Income Distribution on Consumption."Panoeconom/cus, 63(2): 157-174. http://dx.doi.org/10.2298/PAN1602157A

Appendix. In the appendix, only those descriptions of material that would be useful for readers to understand, evaluate, or revise research should be provided.

Footnotes and abbreviations. Footnotes should be avoided. If necessary, references in the footnotes should be used in the same way as in the text. Abbreviations should also be avoided, except from exceptionally usual. The abbreviations stated in tables and pictures should be explained.

Reviews and publishing. All papers are anonymously reviewed by two anonymous reviewers. On the basis of reviews, editorial staff make decision on paper publishing and inform author about it.

Language editing. Authors whose first language is not English should ask a native speaker to proofread the manuscript before the submission. There are also a number of services that provide mentoring, advice and copyediting to support authors unfamiliar with writing academic research papers for publication in international journals. Authors are encouraged to make the use of services such as SPi if necessary.
