Applied Economic Analysis (AEA) is the journal of the Spanish Asociación Libre de Economía (ALdE). It was founded in 1993 as Revista de Economía Aplicada (REA) by a group of more than a hundred researchers from nearly forty universities, and since then, it has published over 500 scientifically-rigorous research papers. The journal joined the category of Economics of the Social Science Citation Index in the middle of the 2000's, and was assigned its first impact factor in 2008.
