ISSN 1126-1668 - e-ISSN 1972-4802

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.
