The application of general principles of economics in the field of agriculture constitutes the subject matter of Agricultural Economics. Agricultural Economics is an important branch of agricultural sciences which deals with the economic aspect of agricultural operations. In the present globalized world, every human activity has a commercial angle. Agriculture is no different, and every agricultural operation involves commercial point of view. In developing countries of the world, one can also witness a continuous shift from subsistence to commercial agriculture. With the challenge of WTO at our doorsteps, we need to work out the real economics of our agriculture so that we can make it more competitive at a global level by bringing out desired positive changes.
 Every day new technologies in the field of agriculture are being generated by the scientists, the adoption of which is dependent upon their comparative advantage in relation to prevailed and adopted technologies. Similarly, the crucial relation between agriculture and natural resources is to be considered from economic sense to find out the real costs and returns in agriculture. Critical analysis of economics for management of diseases and pests can provide useful guidelines to increase production and reduce negative effects on the environment. So there is a need to analyze all such economic aspects in agriculture and more importantly all such works need to be published for wide circulation among the scientific community. Keeping in view all such facts, the attempt for publishing a journal exclusively for covering the economic aspects of agriculture is highly appreciable and I congratulate Renu Publishers, New Delhi for initiating a step to publish Agro-Economist, an international journal. I wish the journal very best and hope it will serve the scientific community for a long time.

Why Publish in AE?
 
An International peer-reviewed journal.
Open access means that your work will always be freely available to the world from our RP website. And open access translates into greater usage and more citations.
 
Results Published FAST
 
AE couples efficient and objective peer review with a streamlined electronic production workflow.
 
Rigorous peer-review
 
Too often a journal’s decision to publish a paper is dominated by what the Editor/s think is interesting and will gain greater readership-both of which are subjective judgments and lead to decisions which are frustrating and delay the publication of your work. AE will rigorously peer-review your submissions and publish all papers that are judged to be technically sound. Judgments about the importance of any particular paper are then made after publication by the readership (who are the most qualified to determine what is of interest to them).
 
Inclusive scope
 
Most conventional journals publish papers from tightly defined subject areas, making it more difficult for readers from other disciplines to read them. AE has no such barriers, which helps your research reach the entire scientific community.
 
AE is indexed in 40+ International Universities and many other Indexing agencies which will make your research work available to many readers and more citations.

Coming Soon...

To encourage AE reviewers for timely and quality reviews on a regular basis, AE has established the following policy on rating and awarding our reviewers for their time and effort. 
 
1. Each reviewer can get a AE reviewer certificate upon their request, once they have completed at least 5 AE reviews. 
 
2. After a reviewer certificate, the reviewer will be considered for the “AE Reviewer Award” on the basis of score. 
 
3. To provide reviewer score information for rewarding our outstanding reviewers, AE Editor-in-Chief, score every reviewer at paper decision time. There are 3 scoring for handling editors to choose: 
 
A. Excellent (90 - 100)
B. Good (70 - 89)
C. Below average (< 70)
