The Ohio Association of Economists and Political Scientists (OAEPS) has a proud tradition as the leading scholarly association for social scientists in Ohio. Since 1940, the OAEPS has been devoted to the understanding and dissemination of knowledge and to the facilitation of dialogue regarding economic and political concepts and events. The OAEPS sponsors an annual conference and publishes the Journal of Economics and Politics. We encourage papers and panel proposals on all aspects of economics and politics for the 2014 conference. Winners of the student paper awards will receive a small honorarium, and their paper will be considered for publication in the Journal of Economics and Politics.
