Adeline has published extensively in top international journals in economics, including Review of Economic Studies, Journal of Political Economy, International Economic Review, American Economic Journal: Applied Economics, Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, Journal of Applied Econometrics, as well in top general interest journals and in top fields of journals of other disciplines: Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences, Demography, Public Opinion Quarterly, and The New England Journal of Medicine.
