Members of the Economics subject group regularly publish in leading refereed journals, such as the Economic Journal, Journal of Economic Theory, Journal of Monetary Economics, European Economic Review, and the Review of Economics and Statistics. Staff also have editorial roles on journals such as Bulletin of Economic Research, Economic Studies, Economie Internationale, the Open-Assessment E-journal, International Economic Journal, Journal of International Financial Markets, Institutions and Money, Regional Studies, and Scottish Journal of Political Economy.

Members of Economics have been research collaborators in and consultants to several international and government organisations around the world, including the IMF, World Bank, United Nations (UNCTAD, UNDP and UNFAO), United Nations University - World Institute for Development Economics Research, Commonwealth Secretariat, numerous central banks (including the European Central Bank), HM Treasury and the Department of Trade and Industry (now Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform) of the UK government, the Scottish Government, the Welsh Assembly Government and Northern Ireland Government, European Commission, and a number of government organisations in developing countries. Our research has also been used by numerous private sector institutions, particularly London–based financial institutions.
