The Journal of Environmental Economics and Management (JEEM) publishes theoretical and empirical papers addressing economic questions related to natural resources and the environment. To warrant publication in JEEM, papers must include carefully identified empirical findings, insightful theoretical analyses, or creative methodologies that are both novel and of broad interest to its readership.

We recognize the boundaries of environmental and resource economics are subjective and evolving, but topics of interest include:

Environmental policy design and instrument choice;

Nonmarket valuation methods and their application to new, policy-relevant settings;

Environmental behavior of firms, government officials and agencies, nonprofit organizations, households, or individuals;

Renewable and non-renewable resource management and policy such as the economics of fisheries, forestry and fossil fuels;

Climate change;

Topics at the intersection of environmental and resource economics and development economics, energy economics, industrial organization, urban economics, transport economics, health economics, or agricultural economics.

We also welcome interdisciplinary work from diverse teams of researchers as long as the paper's primary contribution focuses on economic questions.

We do not publish book reviews, literature reviews, or policy briefs, and we rarely publish papers that replicate previously identified empirical relationships or apply established methods to new case studies. We also do not publish theoretical analyses that merely extend results from well-known models.

In our review process, we pre-screen all papers and desk reject some. Papers that are desk rejected typically are considered poor topical or methodological fits or significantly below JEEM's quality standards.

Papers that are rejected by JEEM will not be reconsidered for publication unless the editor in his or her decision letter makes this possibility explicit.
