Journal of Environmental Economics and Management (JEEM)
The Journal of Environmental Economics and Management (JEEM) publishes theoretical and empirical papers devoted to specific natural resource and environmental issues. To warrant publication in JEEM papers should address new empirical findings that are of interest to a broader audience, theoretical analyses explaining new phenomena or puzzles, or development of theoretical or empirical methods likely being useful for further research.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• Analysis of environmental policy
• Further development of valuation techniques and novel applications of valuation techniques to new data sets
• Study of environmental behavior and responses to regulation
• Analyses of exhaustible, renewable and non-renewable, resources and resource policy, notably the economics of fisheries, forestry and fossil fuels
• Analyses of the carbon cycle, accumulating pollutants, such as greenhouse gases
• Environmental problems in developing countries, such as degradation of natural resources and health problems caused by pollution
• Topics of energy economics related to the environment
• Topics of agricultural economics related to the environment
We also welcome interdisciplinary work as far as it addresses environmental or resource economic issues requiring expertise beyond economics. Since JEEM is an economics journal, we do not publish papers that just combine methods of different disciplines but do not address economic issues in the first place.
We usually do not publish papers that replicate standard empirical findings, or apply standard empirical methods to new but similar data sets. We usually do not publish theoretical analyses that are merely minor extensions or variations of known models and results. We do not publish papers that only marginally touch upon natural resource and environmental economics issues.
In our review process, we prescreen all papers and immediately reject some. This includes papers we do not consider a good fit in terms of topic or methodology. This also includes papers that fall short of our high scientific standards. We will not reconsider papers already rejected for publication by JEEM, unless the editor in his or her decision letter explicitly leaves open this possibility.
