Our board member Spiro Stefanou has been appointed as administrator of the USDA Economic Research Service. We congratulate Spiro with this new position. Unfortunately this means that Spiro has to resign as board member of the EAAEP Foundation, after 13 years of service in which he was very succesful in linking the American and European trends in scientific publishing. The board thanks Spiro for all his contributions.

Given the developments in the publshing industry on Open Access, the EAAEP Foundation (with the support of the EAAE) and OUP have taken the initiative to launch a new journal: Q Open. It is a fully open access journal that is based on a sound science approach, in which novelty and relevance or other subjective criteria play less a role than in the top journals. Your submissions of papers are now welcome. See the pages on this site or the website of the journal
The first issue of EuroChoices for this year is delayed, also in its digital edition as the lay-out team in Hong-Kong is overloaded with work due to Corvid-19 related planning problems.
After 20 years of service, Ulrich Koester and Csaba Csaki stepped down as co-editors of EuroChoices. We are very thankful for their dedication to the journal. Out of several interesting applications the Advisory Group of EuroChoices with AES and EAAEP representatives has appointed three new co-editors as of May 1, 2020: Martin Banse, Imre Ferto and Tomas Garcia Azcarate. We also introduced fixed terms for co-editors, which can be renewed.
In the light of the Corvid-19 crisis, our publishers (OUP for the European Review and Wiley for EuroChoices) have decided for the moment not to print journals. This is normally done in the Far East and (air) transport capacity is scarce, where it is also thought that most readers work from home but have their copy delivered at work / in their libary. So please use the websites of the journals for access.
The second issue of the European Review of this year is another large issue: 14 papers and a review article: Food markets’ structural empirical analysis: a review of methods and topics by Celine Bonnet et al. Enjoy.
The Foundation and AES are searching 2 new co-editors for the journal EuroChoices. See the vacancy description in this file Vacancy Announcement EuroChoice co-editors Your application is welcome until April 1.
