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.
