Submission Guidelines

You are invited to submit theoretical and applied papers in all areas of environmental and natural resource economics for presentation at the EAERE's annual conference to be held in Prague, June 27-30, 2012.

How to Submit

Papers can only be submitted electronically through this webpage.
One electronic full version of the paper should be submitted on-line through the Congress web site. Only pdf files of a maximum size of 2 MB will be accepted as electronic format.

The submitted full version of your paper should be a blind submission. So exclude all information about name, affiliation, address and e-mail address in the pdf file. Do not put your name in the file name.

The following information should be simultaneously entered on the web site:
(I)  name and institutional affiliation of paper presenter and co-author(s);
(II) title of paper;
(III)  address and e-mail address of paper presenter;
(IV)  abstract of paper of no more than 200 words;
(V)  up to six free key words;
(VI)  EAERE codes – each author must attribute the paper to one parallel session code and optionally to one special session or additional parallel session code;
(VII)  Session category. Paper can be submitted both to oral and/or poster sessions.

Papers submitted without all the required information will not be considered.

Though an unlimited number of papers can be submitted, each participant will only be able to present one paper.

All accepted papers will be downloadable from the Conference website.

Co-authored papers should be submitted by the paper presenter.

Poster sessions

The conference offers the possibility for authors to present their papers as posters. We have an excellent area where coffee and lunches will be served and where there is ample room for posters. We believe that posters create a good forum for additional discussions and will contribute to the conferences atmosphere making the coffee breaks much more stimulating. There will be one special designated poster session in connection with one of the lunches or a longer coffee when the presenters will be expected to stand by their poster to explain. We know that some people might have very definite preferences and you will therefore be given the option of submitting your paper: to an oral session; a poster session or an option saying that you accept either-or.

Special sessions


Several special sessions on different topics will be organized this year. Authors have the possibility to attribute their paper to one of the special session during the submission process. More details on the special sessions are available on conference website. The papers submitted to special sessions will undergo the general refereeing process.


Job Market Papers


Candidates submitting a paper to the EAERE Annual Conference have the option of marking their papers as "Job Market Papers" at the submission process. Job Market Papers go through the standard review process as any other papers submitted to the Conference. Accepted Job Market Papers are allocated in the regular sessions with the same criteria of any other paper. Job Market Papers will be marked as so in the printed and on-line Conference programme, where it will be possible to see a list of Job Market Papers being presented in the Conference.


Review process


All papers will undergo the regular peer review process regardless of the session (oral session or poster session) in which they will be presented.

The Programme Chairpersons are:
Prof. Bengt Kriström, Umeå University, Sweden
Dr. Jan Melichar and Dr. Milan Ščasný, Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic


Important dates


Deadline for submission of papers is February 1, 2012.

Notification of acceptance will be sent by April 15, 2012.
