Submission Patterns, Submission Policies, and Revealed Preferences for Agricultural Economics Journals


  • Jayson L. Lusk
  • M. Darren Hudson


We document the submission, rejection, and resubmission patterns of ninety-six papers published in five agricultural and environmental economics journals and use this information to infer authors' preferences among the set of journals. These data are augmented with stated preferences about submission fees, page charges, and membership requirements to forecast the effect of chances in journal submission policies on submission rates. We predict that if the American Journal of Agricultural Economics were to eliminate page charges and adopt a $100 submission fee, submissions to the journal would rise 18% and submissions to the Review of Agricultural Economics would fall 6.5%.
