Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics Editors Announced

Kansas State University faculty members chosen as editors of a top agricultural and resource economics journal

Four Kansas State University faculty members in the Department of Agricultural Economics have been chosen to serve as editors of the Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics (JARE).

The JARE is the official journal of the Western Agricultural Economics Association (WAEA). Editors of the publication are chosen by the WAEA board to serve a three-year term.

Jeffrey Peterson, professor and director of graduate programs; Hikaru Hanawa Peterson, professor and director of undergraduate programs; Tian Xia, associate professor; and David Lambert, professor, were chosen at the most recent board meeting to oversee content of the JARE published during the 2016-18 term.

“The decision by the Western Agricultural Economics Association Board to select (these individuals) as the editors of the Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics for a three-year term fully recognizes past and future research productivity of the four new editors,” said Lambert. “The Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics is one of the top agricultural and resource economics journals among a very crowded global market, with three publications a year and approximately a 15 percent acceptance rate of submitted manuscripts. The new editors are dedicated to maintaining the high quality of the journal.”

The team members will equally share editorial responsibilities, each holding the title of editor. Lambert will serve his second term as an editor of the publication, having previously served as JARE managing editor from 2007-09.

The team will begin consideration of manuscripts for publication April 1, 2015.
