The Journal of Comments and Replications in Economics (JCRE) aims to be the premier outlet for articles that comment on or replicate previously published articles in economics and closely related disciplines. Because many journals are reluctant to publish comments and replications, JCRE was founded to provide an outlet for research that explores whether published results are correct, robust, and/or generalizable. In doing so, JCRE seeks to increase scientific dialog between researchers and to increase the overall credibility and transparency of research in economics.

The JCRE replaces the International Journal for Re-Views in Empirical Economics (IREE).
