About the Journal

The Review of Environmental Economics and Policy is the official journal of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists and the European Association of Environmental and Resource Economists. REEP 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. REEP 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 and symposia published by REEP are commissioned by the Editors, often in response to unsolicited proposals. The Editors welcome proposals for regular articles, symposia, and features. Proposals for regular articles and features should be submitted through ScholarOne at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/reep ; proposals for symposia should be sent to the editorial office ( reep@aere.org ).

All articles and symposia are subject to anonymous peer review as well as review and editing by the Editors. REEP includes three regular features that are not subject to peer review. The “Reflections” column generally provides either a history-of economic-thought perspective or a review and candid discussion of the literature on a particular issue in environmental economics. The “Policy Monitor” reviews developments in specific areas of environmental policy. Book Reviews of timely and important books are published occasionally

The Editors hope that REEP reflects the interests and responds to the needs of the world-wide membership of the Association of Environmental and Resource Economists, as well as REEP's broader constituency of readers.

REEP is sponsored by the Mercator Research Institute on Global Commons and Climate Change and the Environmental Defense Fund.
