dc.description.abstractWe recommend that an auction market replace the current system for submitting academic papers and show a strict Pareto-improvement of equilibrium. Besides the benefits of speed, this mechanmism increases the average quality of articles and journals and rewards editors and referees for their effort. In addition, the academic dollars for papers sold at auction go to the authors, editors and referees of cited articles. This nonpecuniary income indicates academic impact - facilitating decisions on tenure and promotion. We discuss practical issues and demonstrate that the auction market is implementable without relaxing editors' current pecuniary or time constraints.en_US
