Widely regarded as a leading journal in the Asia-Pacific, it has a long history of publication on economic issues impinging on Southeast Asia and the broader Asia-Pacific region. Issues analysed are not specific only to Singapore but rather highlights rigorous empirical work across diverse economic issues of the contemporary world. This includes (but are not limited to) macroeconomic, microeconomic, financial and social aspects, with special emphasis on economic problems related to Asian countries. The journal also publishes papers of an interdisciplinary nature and welcomes this academic interface. It keeps scholars abreast of developments in the economic literature. Initially published as the Malayan Economic Review (MER) from 1956, the journal was subsequently renamed the Singapore Economic Review (SER) in 1969. Among its distinguished contributors were the late Sir John Hicks, Sydney Caine, the late H.G. Johnson, Ragnar Nurkse, H.W. Singer, W.M. Corden, Herbert Grubel, J.C.H. Fei, G. Ranis, Henry Wan, E.J. Mishan, Jerome L. Stein, Jack L. Knetsch, Ng Yew-Kwang, Murray Kemp, Karl Shell and Ronald I. McKinnon. The journal has a wide international circulation; among the many subscribers are the libraries of Harvard University, Stanford University and University of Oxford. The SER's editorial board consists of prominent scholars with different areas of specializations from across the world. With World Scientific as the journal's publisher, the Singapore Economic Review has sections devoted to public policy, applied economics, markets and industry, commentaries, and short papers or notes. The SER also publishes selected book reviews. In addition, specially invited papers by very eminent economists are featured.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
