launched in 2006, provides a focused outlet for high-quality, peer-reviewed research on economic topics related to wine. Although wine economics papers have been, and will continue to be, published in leading general and agricultural economics journals, the number of high-quality papers has grown to such an extent that a specialized journal can provide a useful platform for the exchange of ideas and results.
The JWE is open to any area related to the economic aspects of wine, viticulture, and oenology. It covers a wide array of topics, including, but not limited to: production, winery activities, marketing, consumption, as well as macroeconomic and legal topics. The JWE has been published twice a year and contains main papers, short papers, notes and comments, reviews of books, films and wine events, as well as conference announcements. From 2013 on, the JWE will be published three times per year.
The Journal of Wine Economics is fully owned by the American Association of Wine Economists (AAWE) and, since 2012, has been published by Cambridge University Press.
Both AAWE and Cambridge University Press are non-profit organizations, which enables the Association to keep JWE subscription prices low and, therefore, guarantees a wide distribution. Details of how to join are provided here.
Editors of the JWE are:
Kym Anderson, University of Adelaide, CEPR and World Bank
Orley Ashenfelter, Princeton University
Victor Ginsburgh, Université Libre de Bruxelles
Robert Stavins, Harvard University
Karl Storchmann, New York University
