'Journal of International Agricultural Trade and Development' is intended to serve as the primary outlet for research in all areas of international agricultural trade and development. These include, but are not limited to the following: agricultural trade patterns; commercial policy; international institutions (e.g., WTO, NAFTA, EU) and agricultural trade and development; tariff and non-tariff barriers in agricultural trade; exchange rates; biotechnology and trade; agricultural labor mobility; land reform; agriculture and structural problems of underdevelopment; agriculture, environment, trade and development interface. The Journal especially encourages the submission of articles which are empirical in nature. The emphasis is on quantitative or analytical work which is relevant as well as intellectually stimulating. Empirical analysis should be based on a theoretical framework, and should be capable of replication.
It is expected that all materials required for replication (including computer programs and data sets) should be available upon request to the authors. Theoretical work submitted to the Journal should be original in its motivation or modeling structure. The editors also welcome papers relating to immediate policy concerns as well as critical surveys of the literature in important fields of agricultural trade and development policy and practice. Submissions of critiques or comments on the Journalís articles are also welcomed.
