Review of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Studies is a scientific peer-reviewed journal encouraging new perspectives for research and analysis in economics and sociology on the topics of production, agricultural markets and trade, agricultural and food industry production, food consumption, the environment and natural resources, and rural areas and land use. The Review welcomes theoretical and empirical research, in English. In economics, only articles in English must be submitted. In sociology, articles may be submitted in French or in English but the publication in the end will be in English - if the article is accepted, authors have to translate it into English.
The Review also invites submissions of replication of empirical results in the fields covered by the journal. “News and views” papers, or collections of papers, can also be submitted to the editors. In these short pieces (2000-3000 words), authors express their position on a major political and/or scientific issue. These articles are intended to inform researchers, professionals, or policy makers, and have to be comprehensible to a non-specialist audience. RAFE is indexed in, among others, Journal of Economic Literature, Sociological abstracts, REPEC.

  • CALL FOR PAPERS

    Special issue “Agri-food justice: processes, practices, perspectives”


    This special issue explores the procedural and relational approach to agri-food justice. We will analyse in terms of the connections and disconnections between activities, spaces and agents of food systems, which make the latter more or less inclusive at the level of all their components (food produced, transported, transformed, marketed, distributed, consumed, digested, conceived and considered) (Hochedez and Le Gall, 2018). Agri-food justice associates interacting material and immaterial phenomena, such as ecosystems, workers, farm production methods, supply chains, public policy, land, bodies, etc. It is this matrix of objects, phenomena and relations (or non-relations) that the articles will help to elucidate in an innovative way.
     

  • COVID 19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

  • Green Open Access

    The final publisher version of articles published in Review of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Studies will be made freely available under a .pdf format in an open archive after a period of embargo of 12 months.
