President's Message

Jayson Lusk
AAEA President

January 2017

Providing rigorous, high quality publication outlets for our members to communicate their work to the broader scientific community is among the most important activities of the association. 

There have been some dramatic changes in the publishing landscape for authors of journal articles in agricultural and applied economics.  However, my sense is that these changes are not widely known or acknowledged.  As a result, the AAEA and some of our “sister” associations have been caught a bit flat footed.  Despite the fact that the publishing landscape has dramatically changed in the past decade, some core aspects of the AAEA’s journal offerings have remained static.  If we want to continue to serve our members and remain a source for key research in agricultural and applied economics, some change is likely warranted.
