The Journal of Economic Theory, often referred to as JET, is an important scholarly journal in the field of economics. Although the journal was originally intended as a specialty journal in mathematical economics, JET is now generally regarded as the leading journal in economic theory and one of the core journals in all of economics.

Karl Shell has served as editor of the journal since its inception in 1968. Since 2000, Shell has shared the editorship, with Jess Benhabib, Alessandro Lizzeri, Christian Hellwig, and recently with Alessandro Pavan, Ricardo Lagos, Marciano Siniscalchi, and Xavier Vives. Roughly 45 prominent economists representing many subfields serve on the editorial board as associate editors. The Journal of Economic Theory is published by Elsevier.

In some studies,[1] JET has ranked fourth among all journals in economics in impact-adjusted citations, behind only the American Economic Review, Econometrica, and the Journal of Political Economy. However, more recently, JET has had a lower impact factor.
