Addition (2011-0083) (3525 items; 4.7 lin. ft.; dated 2005-2006) contains files for the Journal of Economic Perspectives, including unsolicited papers and proposals; e-mail correspondence; and article drafts and revisions. Not all unsolicited papers and proposals received by the JEP during these years are included; only those of some interest have been saved (for instance, if the author of the paper was particularly notable.) The bulk of the material consists of articles and proposals from 2005 and 2006, the last years before the JEP began publishing and archiving electronically. A few folders pertain to articles published after 2006. These are articles that were began before the JEP's switch to electronic, and thus some of their early files are archived on paper rather than electronically.
