Journal of International Commerce and Economics (JICE)

What is JICE?

The Journal of International Commerce and Economics (JICE), established in 2006, is a peer-reviewed journal published by the United States International Trade Commission (USITC). Articles published in JICE are solely meant to represent the opinions and professional research of its authors and are not meant to represent in any way the view of the USITC, any of its individual Commissioners, or the United States Government.

Who can submit articles to JICE for review?

JICE article submissions must be authored or co-authored by a USITC employee. External authors may co-author JICE submissions with USITC employees.

What are the citation guidelines for JICE articles?

Authors should use either the most recent Chicago-style citation format or USITC standard citation formats.

How do I submit an article for JICE?

Potential authors are encouraged to discuss their proposals with a member of the JICE Board. Once a paper is ready for submission, email a Word version of your article to, along with any annexes or appendices for tables and figures. It will be briefly reviewed once by the JICE Board, and then an individual article editor is assigned for a detailed review. The article will also be reviewed by two anonymous reviewers in the peer review process.
