Aims and Scope

The German Journal of Agricultural Economics (GJAE) serves as platform for scholarly and innovative work in the field of agricultural and food economics and related disciplines.

The GJAE publishes a broad range of theoretical, applied and policy-related articles. It aims for a balanced coverage of economic issues within agricultural and food production, demand and trade, rural development, and sustainable and efficient resource use as well as specific German or European issues. The GJAE also welcomes review articles.

All published articles are peer reviewed and must show originality and novelty either in methods or in the field of their application. The GJAE very much welcomes agricultural and applied economic studies from all over the world. However, we usually do not send manuscripts out for review that present merely project reports or assessments from narrowly defined locations, unless they bear sufficiently novel economic insights or relevant empirical evidence that would be of potential general interest to our readers. The GJAE charges neither submission- nor publication fees.
