Environmental Economics

I'm shouting because the journal is shouting: Marine Resource Economics  is now accepting submissions for a new section of the journal titled Case Studies, which is intended to provide an outlet for rigorous, theoretically grounded analyses of the governance of individual fisheries and/or aquaculture systems. The new section will be edited by  Tracy Yandle  of Emory University, and the editors expect the first Case Study to be published in the forthcoming volume of the journal. “Case studies play a valuable role in the development of our understanding of effective marine resource governance, yet they are underrepresented in the economics literature. This new section presents a unique opportunity for researchers to apply an economic perspective to rigorous case studies—whether comparative case studies, or single case studies focused at a range of scales," said section editor Tracy Yandle. "I look forward to continuing the strong intellectual tradition of  Marine  Resource Economics , while expanding its coverage to a broader range of settings and research methods.”. The Case Studies section joins  four sections  currently published in  Marine Resource Economics : Articles, Perspectives, Systematic Reviews, and Book Reviews. Its published pieces will provide description and analysis of a particular regionally defined fishery, aquaculture system, marine resource, or comparisons of two or more cases, with an emphasis on an economic analytical perspective and focus on historic and/or current issues of marine or coastal zone policy and governance. "I'm very excited for the potential of this new section to expand the reach of the journal to a wider range of scholars and resource management practitioners," said Joshua K. Abbott,  Marine Resource Economics  editor. The editors encourage submissions focusing on small-scale fisheries and aquaculture in developing nations. Case studies drawing upon quantitative evidence are preferred, though qualitative analyses are also encouraged—particularly in data-poor settings. All submissions to the Case Studies section are subject to a single-blind peer review process. For more information, please review  Marine Resource Economics   Instructions for Authors webpage. This is sure to be the home for many studies that haven't been able to find one in the past.
