The AASLE 2022 Conference was hosted by The University of Tokyo, Japan on December 8-10, 2022The three-day conference included parallel sessions, panels and talks by keynote and invited speakers:

Keynote Speakers 

Barbara Petrongolo (University of Oxford)

Josef Zweimüller (University of Zurich)

Invited Speakers

Attila Lindner (University College London)

Katrine Vellesen Løken (Norwegian School of Economics)

Albert Francis Park (Asian Development Bank)


All presenters of AASLE2022 have now received an invitation to submit their presented paper to the Special Issue of Labour Economics. The deadline for submission is January 31, 2023, and the special issue is expected to be published by November 2023.

Please note that, in addition to the usual requirements for submissions to Labour Economics (see below) we have decided on two additional requirements to stimulate concise papers and to improve the efficiency of the reviewing process:


  1. submitted papers have no more than 12,000 words, excluding title page and abstract, tables and figures, and list of references;

  2. the number of figures and tables must add up to no more than 10 and they must cover no more than 10 pages in reasonable layout.

Finally, please note that in case you have submitted this paper before to a regular issue or another special issue of Labour Economics, you cannot submit it again to this conference issue. The reverse also applies: if you submit to the conference issue, you cannot later submit to another regular or special issue of Labour Economics. Similarly, if your paper is under consideration or has been accepted for publication by a journal other than Labour Economics, it also cannot be submitted to this conference issue.

Labour Economics is the official journal of the EALE, and one of the most cited field journals in Labour Economics. We hope that you will consider the conference volume as an outlet for publishing
your very interesting work.

Please do not hesitate to contact us, should you have any further questions.

Best wishes,

Shuaizhang Feng and Abigail Payne

  1.  Go to

  2. Login as an "author"; then click on "submit paper". - If you don't have an Elsevier login or have forgotten it then click on their "home" link where you will find instructions on how to get one as a new user or a reminder for users already registered.

  3. Click on "submit new manuscript" and, in the drop-down "Article type" list, you need to choose ‘VSI: AASLE 2022’. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AS OTHERWISE YOUR SUBMISSION WILL BE CONSIDERED FOR A NORMAL ISSUE OF THE JOURNAL. The conference issue submission window is available until 31st January 2023.

  4. Submissions to the special issue are free of charge.

  5. You will need to enter a title, upload a cover letter, an abstract and the manuscript and, if necessary, any other files - but the system is usually happy for you to include figures and tables in the text. Do not be overly concerned over formatting and style.

  6. The system will then compile all of these into a pdf for submission.

  7. You should check carefully that your submission has been compiled correctly.

  8. You are done. (Throughout the process there is a visible link to a ‘guide for authors’ if you get stuck.)
