  • ISSN: 1471-0153
  • 5 Year impact factor: 3
  • Impact factor: 2.8
Eating Behaviors is an international peer-reviewed scientific journal publishing human research on the etiology, prevention, and treatment of the full range of eating pathology (e.g., obesity, binge eating, eating disorders) in diverse groups of adults and children. Studies related to the promotion of healthy eating and weight management patterns are also of interest. Two types of manuscripts are encouraged: (1) Descriptive studies establishing functional relationships between eating behaviors and social, cognitive, environmental, attitudinal, emotional or biochemical factors; (2) Clinical outcome research evaluating the efficacy of prevention or treatment protocols.The journal's emphasis is on empirical research. That is, sound experimental design combined with valid, reliable assessment and evaluation procedures are a requisite for acceptance. Generally, case studies are not accepted for publication. Rigorous systematic reviews conducted according to Prisma guidelines are welcome. Theoretical reviews are typically invited; however, proposals are welcome and should be sent to the Editor-in-Chief, Suzanne Mazzeo.

Ecological Economics

  • ISSN: 0921-8009
  • 5 Year impact factor: 7.5
  • Impact factor: 7
The Transdisciplinary Journal of the International Society for Ecological Economics (ISEE)The journal is concerned with extending and integrating the understanding of the interfaces and interplay between "nature's household" (ecosystems) and "humanity's household" (the economy). Ecological economics is an interdisciplinary field defined by a set of concrete problems or challenges related to governing economic activity in a way that promotes human well-being, sustainability, and justice. The journal thus emphasizes critical work that draws on and integrates elements of ecological science, economics, and the analysis of values, behaviors, cultural practices, institutional structures, and societal dynamics. The journal is transdisciplinary in spirit and methodologically open, drawing on the insights offered by a variety of intellectual traditions, and appealing to a diverse readership.Specific research areas covered include: valuation of natural resources, sustainable agriculture and development, ecologically integrated technology, integrated ecologic-economic modelling at scales from local to regional to global, implications of thermodynamics for economics and ecology, renewable resource management and conservation, critical assessments of the basic assumptions underlying current economic and ecological paradigms and the implications of alternative assumptions, economic and ecological consequences of genetically engineered organisms, and gene pool inventory and management, alternative principles for valuing natural wealth, integrating natural resources and environmental services into national income and wealth accounts, methods of implementing efficient environmental policies, case studies of economic-ecologic conflict or harmony, etc. New issues in this area are rapidly emerging and will find a ready forum in Ecological Economics.Ecological Economics Sections All submissions to Ecological Economics are reviewed using the general criteria of quality, creativity, originality, accuracy, and contribution to the field. There are several categories of articles to allow for a full range of constructive dialogue.News and Views Topical and timely short pieces reviewed by the editor and/or one outside reviewer at the editor's discretion.

Ecological Modelling

  • ISSN: 0304-3800
  • 5 Year impact factor: 3.1
  • Impact factor: 3.1
International Journal on Ecological Modelling and Systems EcologyEcological Modelling publishes new mathematical models and systems analysis for describing ecological processes, and novel applications of models for environmental management. We welcome research on process-based models embedded in theory with explicit causative agents and innovative applications of existing models. And because applications can help refine models and propose new directions for research, the journal publishes both to help foster reproducibility and utility.Human activity and well-being are dependent on and integrated with the functioning of ecosystems and the services they provide. We aim to understand these basic ecosystem functions using mathematical and conceptual modelling, systems analysis, thermodynamics, computer simulations, and ecological theory, and look to a wide spectrum of applications ranging from basic ecology to human ecology to socio-ecological systems. The journal welcomes original research articles, review articles, viewpoint articles and short communications.The journal also supports the activities of the International Society of Ecological Modelling (ISEM).Benefits to authors We also provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs, a liberal copyright policy, special discounts on Elsevier publications and much more.

Econometrics and Statistics

  • ISSN: 2452-3062
  • 5 Year impact factor: 1.7
  • Impact factor: 1.9
Econometrics and Statistics is the official journal of the networks Computational and Financial Econometrics and Computational and Methodological Statistics. It publishes research papers in all aspects of econometrics and statistics and comprises of the two sections Part A: Econometrics and Part B: Statistics.Part A: Econometrics. Emphasis is given to methodological and theoretical papers containing substantial econometrics derivations or showing a potential of a significant impact in the broad area of econometrics. Topics of interest include the estimation of econometric models and associated inference, model selection, panel data, measurement error, Bayesian methods, and time series analyses. Simulations are considered when they involve an original methodology. Innovative papers in financial econometrics and its applications are considered. The covered topics include portfolio allocation, option pricing, quantitative risk management, systemic risk and market microstructure. Interest is focused as well on well-founded applied econometric studies that demonstrate the practicality of new procedures and models. Such studies should involve the rigorous application of statistical techniques, including estimation, inference and forecasting. Topics include volatility and risk, credit risk, pricing models, portfolio management, and emerging markets. Innovative contributions in empirical finance and financial data analysis that use advanced statistical methods are encouraged. The results of the submissions should be replicable. Applications consisting only of routine calculations are not of interest to the journal.Part B: Statistics. Papers providing important original contributions to methodological statistics inspired in applications are considered for this section. Papers dealing, directly or indirectly, with computational and technical elements are particularly encouraged. These cover developments concerning issues of high-dimensionality, re-sampling, dependence, robustness, filtering, and, in general, the interaction of mathematical methods, numerical implementations and the extra burden of analysing large and/or complex datasets with such methods in different areas such as medicine, epidemiology, biology, psychology, climatology and communication. Innovative algorithmic developments are also of interest, as are the computer programs and the computational environments that implement them as a complement.The journal consists, preponderantly, of original research. Occasionally, review and short papers from experts are published, which may be accompanied by discussions. Special issues and sections within important areas of research are occasionally published. The journal publishes as a supplement The Annals of Computational and Financial Econometrics.

Economic Modelling

  • ISSN: 0264-9993
  • 5 Year impact factor: 4.2
  • Impact factor: 4.7
The International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Papers on Economic ModellingEconomic Modelling - a scholarly journal which came into being in 1984 - fills a major gap in the economics literature, providing a single source of both theoretical and applied papers on economic modelling. The journal's prime objective is to provide an international review of the state-of-the-art in economic modelling.Economic Modelling has historically published the complete versions of many large-scale macroeconomic models (for advanced and less developed countries and both closed and open economies) which have been developed for policy analysis. Examples are the Bank of England Model and the US Federal Reserve Board Model. As these models are updated and new models are developed, the journal continues to publish papers dealing with these revisions or new models, including structural macro-modeling in a VAR framework or in the latest DSGE settings.The journal currently publishes policy-relevant theoretical and applied papers in macroeconomics and other fields of economics, such as development economics, energy economics, environmental economics, financial economics, health economics, industrial economics, international economics, labor economics, microeconomics, public economics, and urban economics. The journal also welcomes cutting-edge empirical papers in heterodox economics.
