XVII EAAE Congress
The Local Organising Committee and the Programme Committee cordially invite you to the XVII Congress of the European Association of Agricultural Economists on “Food systems in a changing world: Connecting Science and Society”.
The Congress will take place in beautiful and cosy Rennes – France, from Tuesday, August 29 until Friday, September 1, 2023. Get a glimpse.
The scientific and societal challenges for agricultural economists are huge. As scientists we need to create and share insights on how to transform agri-food systems into sustainable and resilient systems that increase prosperity in Europe and across the globe. The XVII Congress aims at contributions and interactions that can advance the scientific agenda, and at fostering the debate over effective policies and innovative strategies for agri-food system transformations.
We welcome contributed papers and posters as well as organised sessions from all fields of agricultural, food, environmental and rural economics, as well as related disciplines. For further information, visit https://eaae2023.colloque.inrae.fr
ERAE information :
The European Review of Agricultural Economics now accepts review articles, and the ERAE Editors welcome proposals for review articles from EAAE members. Review articles should provide a comprehensive and scholarly account of a topic that has direct relevance to agricultural economics (methodological or applied) and that has not recently been covered in the literature. A pre-submission enquiry is required. If you are interested in writing a review article for ERAE, please send an abstract, outline, and key references to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Q Open – The Evolution of Open Access
Our new journal Q Open is now in its 2nd year. The rationale of Q Open for our profession is growing strongly. A good example is Horizon Europe (the EU’s key research and innovation funding programme until 2027) that has implemented a policy that means that research will need to be made OA on publication, and that funding will only be available to fund publication fees in full OA outlets. Furthermore, Horizon Europe funding will not support funding of research publications in hybrid journals (i.e., journals with a paywall and OA options).
It is in this context that Q Open potentially offers our profession the possibility of publishing research that meets the increasingly demanding OA requirements whilst also providing a publication platform that brings with it the necessary reputation and support, that academic researchers require in building a career. Of course, for Q Open to meet the needs of our profession it is important that Q Open grows its reputation and becomes established as a target journal for academics to publish in. It is in this context that we encourage members of the profession to seriously consider Q Open as an outlet for their high-quality research.
We realise that much hard work remains, if we are to achieve our objective of being a top-ranking field journal in the areas we cover (i.e., agricultural economics, environmental and climate economics, natural resource economics development economics and food economics) it is essential that we continue to receive the support that we already have from our colleagues. The transition to OA will not be easy for the profession and society/community-based journals. Fully OA journals have to become established in terms of Impact Factors and need to have a minimum size not to be loss-making. To transform community/society-based publishing with its advantages of good networks of authors and reviewers, linked also to congresses and seminars with special issues, we call upon society members to contribute to this transition by submitting and helping to review for Q Open.
The Q Open Editors: Iain Fraser, Erwin Bulte, Vincenzina Caputo, Phoebe Koundouri and David Lewis.
