I have been at Queen's since 1975, where I am at present the Sir Edward Peacock Professor of Econometrics. I am the Software Review Editor of the Journal of Applied Econometrics, and I maintain the JAE Data Archive. If you are interested in writing software reviews for the JAE, please get in touch with me. I am always looking for software to review and people to review it.

From June, 2001 until June, 2002, I was the President of the Canadian Economics Association. I gave the Presidential Address at the University of Calgary on June 1, 2002. As President-Elect, I organized the 2001 Annual Meeting of the CEA, which was held at McGill University in Montreal from May 31 to June 3, 2001.

Morten Nielsen and I organized the twenty-ninth meeting of the Canadian Econometric Study Group on October 26-28, 2012. This was the third meeting to be held at Queen's. I also organized the fourteenth meeting of the CESG, which was held in Kingston on September 26-28, 1997. Charles Beach and I organized the very first CESG meeting in 1984.

My curriculum vitae is available as a PDF file.

My profile on RePEc contains links to many of my papers, including older papers not linked to on this page.

My Google Scholar profile contains a much more complete list of papers and citations.

My publications in recent years include:

Some recent discussion papers:

  • James G. MacKinnon, "Applications of the fast double bootstrap," QED Working Paper No. 1023, 2006. Get the working paper version.

  • James G. MacKinnon, "Critical values for cointegration tests," QED Working Paper No. 1227, 2010. This is an updated version of my 1990 UCSD discussion paper, which is no longer available on the web. Three new tables contain critical values that are more accurate and cover more cases than the single table in the original version. Get the paper here.

  • James G. MacKinnon and Matthew D. Webb, ""Wild bootstrap inference for wildly different cluster sizes", QED Working Paper No. 1314, 2013. Get the paper here.

  • Russell Davidson and James G. MacKinnon, "Bootstrap tests for overidentification in linear regression models," QED Working Paper No. 1318, 2013. Get the paper here.
