Q Open is an innovative new open access journal, publishing applied research in a broad range of areas including, agricultural, climate, environmental, food, resource, and rural development economics.
Q Open is led by a team of highly experienced editors – Iain Fraser, Erwin Bulte, Vincenzina Caputo, Phoebe Koundouri, and David Lewis – and is dedicated to fast peer-review, aiming to provide a first decision within 4-6 weeks. Q Open operates ‘sound-science’ peer review, where the focus is on scientific rigour and reflects the state-of-the-art in the field. The editorial decision on acceptance/rejection relies less on the often subjective evaluations of likely impact, novelty, or breadth of interest.
Submit your papers today to join this new author community, with a journal that is at the forefront of the calls for more open research within the economics field.
