Economia agro-alimentare/Food Economy is a triannual peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Franco Angeli Edizioni on behalf of the Italian Society of Agri-food Economics (SIEA), founded in 1996 by the then President of SIEA Fausto Cantarelli.
It offers an international forum for the discussion and analysis of mono and interdisciplinary socio-economic, political, legal and technical issues, related to agricultural and food systems.
It welcomes submissions of original papers focusing on agriculture, food, natural resources, safety, nutrition and health, including all processes and infrastructure involved in providing food to populations; as well as the processes, inputs and outputs involved in consumption and disposal of food and food-related items. Analyses also include social, political, economic and environmental contexts and human resource challenges.
Submissions should be addressed to an international audience of researchers, practitioners, and policy makers, and they may consider local, national, or global scales.
The journal is indexed by Scopus.

Scopus has published the CiteScores for 2019 and the other indexes based on its database (e.g., SJR and SNIP).
Scopus has introduced an improved CiteScore methodology. CiteScore 2019 now counts the citations received in 2016-2019 to articles, reviews, conference papers, book chapters and data papers
published in 2016-2019, and divides this by the number of publications published in 2016-2019.
The CiteScore of Economia agro-alimentare is 0.9 in 2019 (up 50% compared to 2018). This score allows the journal to rank in the 41st percentile in the Social Sciences (miscellaneous) category.
The ranking in the Economics and Econometrics category improves from the 24th percentile (#468/617) in 2018 to the 32nd percentile (#430/637).
We mourn the passing of Fausto Cantarelli, founder of our journal, one of the most passionate supporters of the importance of the integrated study of agro-food systems. His vision of quality and marketing as the main determinants of the success of agri-food products on national and international markets and of the supply chain as the backbone of the systemic development of territories have anticipated important developments in our discipline.
