About the Journal

The Review of Environmental Economics and Policy fills the gap between traditional academic journals and the general interest press by providing a widely accessible yet scholarly source for the latest thinking on environmental economics and related policy. The Review publishes symposia, articles, and regular features that contribute to one or more of the following goals:

  • to identify and synthesize lessons learned from recent and ongoing environmental economics research;
  • to provide economic analysis of environmental policy issues;
  • to promote the sharing of ideas and perspectives among the various sub-fields of environmental economics;
  • to strengthen the linkages between environmental economics research and environmental policy;
  • to encourage communication and connections between academics and the wider policy community;
  • to offer suggestions for future research;
  • to provide insights and readings for use in the classroom;
  • to address issues of interest to the environmental economics profession.

Articles published by the Review are generally commissioned by the Editors, but are also subject to anonymous peer review. Although the submission of unsolicited manuscripts is not encouraged, the Editors welcome proposals for topics and authors. All such proposals should be sent to the editorial office. The Editors hope that the Review reflects the interests and responds to the needs of the world-wide membership of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists, as well as the Review’s broader constituency of readers.
