The primary concern of Environmental & Resource Economics is the application of economic theory and methods to environmental issues and problems that require detailed analysis in order to improve management strategies. The contemporary environmental debate is in a constant state of flux, with new or relatively unexplored topics continually emerging. The Journal provides a forum for the further exploration of causes, consequences and policy responses linked to these topics, across a range of spatial and temporal scales up to the global dimension. Areas of particular interest include evaluation and development of instruments of environmental policy; cost-benefit and cost effectiveness analysis; sectoral environmental policy impact analysis; modeling and simulation; institutional arrangements; resource pricing and the valuation of environmental goods; and indicators of environmental quality.

The contents are chosen for their relevance to the process of policy formulation and application.

  • The journal seeks to publish papers which develop and apply new theory and methods for the application of economic principles to aid local to global decision-making in environmental protection, natural resource utilisation and ecosystem management
  • 100% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again
