October 2014 News and Announcements
Journal of Benefit-Cost Analysis Moves to Cambridge University Press
Beginning in 2015, Cambridge University Press will be publishing the Journal of Benefit-Cost Analysis on behalf of the Society for Benefit-Cost Analysis.
In an announcement, Cambridge University Press noted that “[t]his new partnership marks a rebranding of the journal in terms of both appearance and reach, reinforcing the journal’s position as an authority on analytical practice of benefit-cost analysis. For the first time the journal will benefit from online before print publication on FirstView and improved article functionality in terms of enhanced HTML and mobile optimization.”
Editors Glenn Blomquist and William Hoyt agree that this opens an exciting new chapter in the Journal’s development. Prior to the move, JBCA will be publishing two issues that will include several articles on retrospective analysis and on benefit-cost analysis and climate policy.
