The Cato Journal is a triannual peer-reviewed academic journal which covers public policy from an Austro-libertarian point of view.[1] It was established in 1981 and is published by Cato Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based libertarian think tank. It publishes articles discussing politics and economy. According to the Cato Institute website, the journal is a "free-market, public policy journal ... for scholars concerned with questions of public policy, yet it is written and edited to be accessible to the interested lay reader".[2] The editor-in-chief is James A. Dorn of the Cato Institute.


The journal was established in 1981, when two issues were published. The frequency of publication has been triannual since 1982, with the exception of volume 15 for 1995. In 2004/2005, the grouping together of issues into volumes switched from a Spring-Fall-Winter grouping to a Winter-Spring-Fall grouping, thereby synchronizing it with the calendar year.[3]
