Applied Economics Perspectives and Policy
Applied Economics Teaching Resources (AETR) is an online, open access, and peer-reviewed professional publication series. The aim is to provide an inclusive 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 to support and advance teaching and Extension education within the scholarly areas of agricultural and applied economics, and agribusiness economics and management. AETR seeks to publish articles that are diverse in both scope and authorship. It serves as a platform for addressing and contributing to our understanding of important societal issues, including inequality and discrimination, as well as how shifts in pedagogy (e.g., growing reliance on remote and hybrid learning modalities) may impact accessibility and inclusion.
Applied Economics and Teaching Resources (AETR) is calling for manuscripts on Extension Education and Teaching methods, program and curriculum development, program delivery and impact assessment. Additionally, manuscripts which document effective methods of educating future Extension professionals are welcome, as well as those which address the current and future trends and needs in Extension economics programming.
