The Economic Journal has announced that Barcelona GSE Affiliated Professor Joan Llull (MOVE, UAB and Barcelona GSE) has joined the publication as Data Editor. 

"Fostering transparency and reproducibility is key for research credibility. EJ is joining other leading journals in that effort. Joan will not only ensure that pre-acceptance replication checks happen in the best conditions for authors but also work, with other data editors and stakeholders, to develop and promote best practices," they announced via Twitter.

The Economic Journal is the journal of the Royal Economic Society (RES). The position of Data Editor is a relatively new one that has also been pioneered by the journals of the American Economic Association and the Review of Economic Studies, as well as journals like the Econometrics Journal and the Canadian Journal of Economics.
