Bio-based and Applied Economics

Bio-based and Applied Economics is a free-access on-line journal promoted by the Italian Association of Agricultural and Applied Economics (AIEAA). Although mainly devoted to scholars and well established researchers BAE also encourages submissions by young researchers, teams involved in ongoing research projects and also relevant actors in the field of bio-economy and related public policies.
BAEpublishes contributions on the economics of bio-based industries, such as agriculture, forestry, fishery and food, dealing with any related disciplines, such as resource and environmental economics, consumer studies, regional economics, innovation and development economics.

New service for our authors: Just Accepted


In response to feedback from the research community, BAE is now making articles available online after the acceptance. 

As a free service, making the accepted manuscript available has a number of benefits for our authors, including;

  • Earlier opportunity for research to be read and cited

  • Authors can promote their work as soon as it is accepted by their peers - maintaining the momentum of the publication process

  • Improved opportunities for funding approval as researchers can list their work earlier.

This version of the manuscript will not be language-edited or typeset and will be provided as a flat PDF.

We will continue to work with authors on the production of their article, and the final version of record will replace the accepted manuscript version once this has been completed.
