Welcome to the RAFE's archives

The Review of Agricultural, Food and Environmental Studies is a scientific peer-reviewed journal. 

It is encouraging new perspectives for research and analysis in economics and sociology on the topics of production, agricultural markets and trade, agricultural and food industry production, food consumption, the environment and natural resources, and rural areas and land use.

The Review welcomes theoretical and empirical research, in English. In economics, only articles in English must be submitted. In sociology, articles may be submitted in French or in English but the publication in the end will be in English - if the article is accepted, authors have to translate it into English.

The Review also invites submissions of replication of empirical results in the fields covered by the journal.

The RAFE is indexed in, among others, Journal of Economic Literature, Sociological abstracts, REPEC.

 The RAFE replaces RAEStud (2008-2015) and also replaces the Cahiers d'économie et sociologie rurales (1984-2008).
