The Agricultural & Applied Economics Association (aaea.org) is a leading professional organization with a mission to enhance the skills, knowledge, and professional contributions of economists who help society solve agricultural, development, environmental, food and consumer, natural resource, regional, rural, and associated applied economics and business problems.
The new partnership will provide the AAEA with expanded innovative tools and services to improve the author experience throughout the publishing process. It will also help to drive the accessibility, discoverability and impact of the two journals through new digital and platform capabilities.

This is a great opportunity for our association.”
