Journal Subscriptions

The journal, Ecological Economics, is concerned with extending and integrating the study and management of “nature’s household” (ecology) and “humankind’s household” (economics). This integration is necessary because conceptual and professional isolation have led to economic and environmental policies which are mutually destructive rather than reinforcing in the long term. The journal is transdisciplinary in spirit and it’s methodologically open.

Specific research areas covered include: valuation of natural resources, sustainable agriculture and development, ecologically integrated technology, integrated ecologic-economic modeling at scales from local to regional to global, implications of thermodynamics for economics and ecology, renewable resource management and conservation, critical assessments of the basic assumptions underlying current economic and ecological paradigms and the implications of alternative assumptions, economic and ecological consequences of genetically engineered organisms, and gene pool inventory and management, alternative principles for valuing natural wealth, integrating natural resources and environmental services into national income and wealth accounts, methods of implementing efficient environmental policies, case studies of economic-ecologic conflict or harmony, etc. New issues in this area are rapidly emerging and will find a ready forum in Ecological Economics.

For further details on Ecological Economics, including the editorial board composition, information for submissions, and details on its philosophy and guiding principles, visit the journal website.

Your membership affords you a subscription at a significantly reduced rate.  Your subscription will commence on January 1.  If selected, you will receive specific instructions on accessing the electronic version of the Journal.  Note also that if you have selected the paper version that it will take 4 to 6 weeks for it to arrive following its publication date depending on your address.

Please note that it is imperative that you keep us up to date with your address by making necessary changes online as soon as possible.

The one year cost for the electronic Journal US$30; Electronic and Paper Journal US$65. The paper version of the Journal is not available by itself.

If you choose to renew for three years these rates are triple.
