Journals & Communications

Since its inception over 30 years ago, AERE has facilitated the exchange of ideas around environmental and natural resource economics and policy through its journals.  AERE continues today in this tradition, publishing two of the most highly regarded journals in the field: our research journal bearing the association's name, and a review journal that provides widely accessible discussions on the latest thinking in environmental economics and related policy by globally renowned experts in their field.  

AERE also supports RESECON, an electronic list server that allows members to post and receive information relevant to their work.  Learn more about RESECON or join the list >>
