From the PDC website for the journal:

Process Studies is a peer-reviewed journal that may be defined as referring primarily, although not exclusively, to the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead and his intellectual associates, most notably Charles Hartshorne. With this focus, Process Studies seeks to explore process thought more broadly as it appears in related philosophies and theologies and to apply the Whiteheadian conceptuality to other fields, such as aesthetics, biology, cosmology, economics, ethics, history of religions, literary criticism, mathematics, political thought, psychology, physics, social science and sociology. The journal is published by the Center for Process Studies.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (1971) to present.

International review of environmental and resource economics

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : International review of environmental and resource economics.

241h

From the Now Publishers website for the journal:

“Environmental and resource economics has become a broad topic, making connections with many other subdisciplines in economics as well as the natural and physical sciences. It has also experienced a significant growth in research such that the literature is exploding in terms of the number of topics addressed, the number of methodological approaches being applied and the sheer number of articles being written. Coupled with the high degree of specialization that characterizes modern academic research, this proliferation of topics and methodologies makes it impossible for anyone, even those who specialize in the subject, to keep up with developments in the field.

“The International Review of Environmental and Resource Economics is designed to fill this niche by publishing state-of-the-art review articles by top specialists in their fields who have made substantial contributions to the area that they are surveying.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 0 (2007) to present.

Review of Behavioral Economics

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : REVIEW OF BEHAVIORAL ECONOMICS.

5856708903_294549a95a_b

From the Now Publishers website for the journal:

“The Review of Behavioral Economics (ROBE) seeks to extend and develop the study of behavioral economics. The journal encourages a transdisciplinary and pluralistic perspective in the tradition of the late Herbert A. Simon, long recognized as the founder of modern behavioral economics, for whom the concepts of bounded rationality and satisficing were based on psychological, cognitive, and computational limits of human knowledge and behavior, the decision-making environment, and the evolutionary capabilities of the human being. ROBE sees behavioral economics embedded in a broader behavioral science that includes most of the social sciences, as well as aspects of the natural and mathematical sciences.

“The journal is open to a variety of approaches and methods, both mainstream and non-orthodox, as well as theoretical, empirical, and narrative. While empirical work may rely on laboratory or field experiments, published data, case studies, surveys, or simulations, we encourage authors to emphasize the strength and importance of relationships observed and statistically analyzed in their data. Discussion of policy implications of any findings is encouraged.

“All papers are subject to a double-blind review process, but final decisions will be made by the editors and not by the referees. The journal seeks to publish cutting edge research that will change our understanding of human behavior in its economic and broader social contexts. We appreciate that some of the most innovative and important papers can leave some readers (and referees) in disagreement with their arguments or findings.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2014) to present.

Strategic Behavior and the Environment

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : Strategic Behavior and the Environment.

252h

From the EAEREwebsite for the journal:

“As local, national and global environmental and natural resource situations deteriorate, intervention policies become particularly important. The increased level of policy debate regarding environmental and natural resources is well reflected in a rising trend of published analytical work that addresses the interaction between needed policies to better manage environmental and natural resources and the strategic behavior of those who are involved in its design and implementation, and those affected by them. Environmental policy and strategic behavior has become a field that interests researchers from several disciplines in the social sciences, employing different methodologies while addressing similar research questions. Simultaneously, policy makers seek more help from researchers in the process of developing and implementing environmental policies. The impact of the increasing body of such works on both the scientific literature and the policy making process would be much more effective if championed by a high quality publication outlet.

“Strategic Behavior and the Environment is intended to provide a platform for the various disciplines that jointly contribute to our understanding of that field.”

Subjects covered by the title include economics, political science and international relations.

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2011) to present.
