Aims & scope


Agricultural and Food Economics (AFE) is an international peer-reviewed journal welcoming research articles from economists, scholars and researchers from all over the world to publish problem-oriented and high quality articles. AFE publishes only original articles from a wide variety of economic perspectives that address current and relevant issues related to the agricultural and food system. Published articles focus on applied analysis, the discussion of innovative results, and relevant policy and managerial implications.

Agricultural and Food Economics operates a membership program to cover some or all of the 650 EUR article processing charge.

If the submitting author's organization is a member of SIDEA, the cost of the article processing charge is covered in full by the membership, and no further charge is payable. To claim this discount, the submitting author must enter the membership code when prompted. This can be requested from their SIDEA representative.

If the submitting author is not a member of SIDEA, they need only to pay 100 EUR, with the remaining 550 EUR paid by SIDEA.
