AAEA Announces a New Publication Series for Teaching

Applied Economics Teaching Resources articles now available

The Agricultural & Applied Economics Association (AAEA) is announcing the release of a new online open access publication series called Applied Economics Teaching Resources (AETR). The aim of AETR is to provide an outlet for research, teaching and extension education scholarship encompassing but not limited to research articles, case studies, classroom games, commentaries, experiential learning, and pedagogy. The goal is advancing and supporting teaching and extension education within applied and agricultural economics, and agribusiness. The new publication series fills a teaching gap in current AAEA publications and the wider profession.

Submissions to the publication are peer-reviewed and held to the high standards exhibited in the agricultural economics profession. The scope of the journal extends to teaching and education contributions and materials for undergraduate and graduate education, as well as extension and adult education. 

Jason Bergtold from Kansas State University is the inaugural Editor of the publication. He says, “AETR provides a unique outlet for high-end teaching and extension scholarship for our Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness profession. I am excited about this opportunity and strongly believe AETR will have a strong impact on the approach, methods and impact of teaching and extension in our profession going into the future. “
