Manuscript Submission

Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy” (EEEP), established as an IAEE publication in 2012, focuses on policy issues in the interface between energy and environmental economics. It provides a scholarly and research-based, yet easily read and accessible source of information on contemporary economic thinking and analysis of energy and environmental policy. The Journal aims to nurture the dialogue between academics, business and public authorities. Published twice a year in March and September, each issue contains original refereed articles and book reviews on energy and environmental economic topics with a policy orientation.


Authors must submit two copies of their manuscript in MS Word format, or the PDF output of LaTeX, online at our Online Submission Form. The first electronic copy of the manuscript shall include author names and full contact details. The second shall be submitted as a blind version (i.e., without author names or contact details listed anywhere within the document). Manuscripts will not be considered if multiple files are submitted - e.g., text files along with separate files with graphics, tables or equations. Each of the two electronic files must incorporate all text, tables, equations and graphics. The submission fee for articles submitted to Economics of Energy and Environmental Policy is $150. (There is no fee if at least one author is an IAEE member.)

Manuscripts submitted must be original work, which indicates that the manuscript has never been published before and is not under consideration by another publisher’s body of work. Authors submitting a manuscript do so on the understanding that if accepted for publication, copyright of the article, including the right to reproduce the article in all forms and media, shall be assigned exclusively to the International Association for Energy Economics (IAEE). Authors must agree that accepted manuscripts will not be published elsewhere without first seeking the publisher’s permission to release copyright with appropriate first publication copyright language. The IAEE will not refuse any reasonable request by authors for permission to reproduce any of their contributions to the publication. There is no article submission fee.

Articles shall be in good quality English. Submissions in poor English will be declined. Editors reserve the right to suggest rewriting/editing (of parts) of a submitted text to make it more readable and accessible.

Submitted papers may undergo electronic web-based analysis to ensure their originality and to identify possible cases of plagiarism. Submission to Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy implies that the authors grant permission that such analyses may be performed.

Manuscripts should be prepared according to the following format:

  • General form . Manuscripts should be short in nature (no more than 6,000 words excluding abstract, footnotes, and reference list) and be light on equations, tables and figures. The first page of the non-blind version must contain the manuscript title; each author’s name and complete affiliation(s); and the complete mailing address, email and phone number of the corresponding author. The blind version must be stripped of all identifying information. An abstract of up to 200 words, which briefly describes the article’s objective, content and results, is required. Also provide three to five keywords. Footnotes, if provided, should be few. Acknowledgements, if any, shall be positioned before the reference list.
  • Math, tables, and footnotes . Math must be either typed directly using MS Word or created using the MS Equation Editor or MathType, or LaTeX math functions. Format each table with the application’s table function. Tables provided as graphics cannot be accepted. Avoid unnecessary shading, bold, and other formatting. Create footnotes using the footnote function, and number them consecutively with superscript Arabic numerals.
  • Figures . Number the figures consecutively, and provide a short caption for each figure. All art must be final and ready for publication. In addition to the figures placed in the manuscript files, each figure must be provided unembedded as a separate, high-resolution file (at least 300 ppi, and 600 ppi recommended) later for typesetting. Acceptable file formats include EPS, TIFF, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, XLS, XLSX, DOC, DOCX, and PDF. Color figures will be converted to grayscale for the print publication. If such conversion will result in poor distinction between parts of the figure, the author must also submit a separate grayscale version that enhances the distinction.
  • LaTeX versions of accepted manuscripts must be submitted as both the tex file and the pdf output. Any separate files used in creating the pdf output must be included, especially graphics files and a bibliography file if it was used to create the list of references. The pdf output should be produced using the template available on our web site, which will format the article according to our style requirements and allow you to place graphics, tables etc. appropriately.

  • References. Use the author-date citation system, and include an alphabetical reference list of all works cited. All works in the reference list must be cited in the text. Journal style follows The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition, for reference list and in-text citation formats. An example of our reference list style is as follows:

  • Refereeing . Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy is a peer reviewed journal. Authors are requested to propose two potential referees for their paper. Please indicate full names, affiliations and email addresses.


Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy is committed to the principle that results in papers that it publishes must be replicable. Once the paper has been accepted, the author(s) must confirm his/her willingness to make data and programs available to other researchers on a request basis. EEEP recognizes that in some cases, data and/or programs are proprietary or may have required considerable resources to assemble. If this is the case, the author(s) are required to write a letter to the Editor in charge of the paper to explain the circumstances. In such cases it is expected that the author(s) be willing to share their data/programs on the condition that the researcher will use the materials solely for the purpose of replicating the results.


In order to improve the accessibility of Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy papers, authors are required to submit a short (one to two page) non-technical Executive Summary in PDF format which contains the following: a) the motivations underlying the research; b) a short account of the research performed; c) the main conclusions; and, d) potential benefits, applications and policy implications of the work. No tables, charts, graphics, equations, etc. are to be included in the Executive Summary.

Authors are encouraged to submit the Executive Summary with their initial submission. If it is not available at this time, it must be submitted together with the first revised version of the paper. Failure to provide the extended abstract will result in delays in the review process and potentially delays in publication.

The Executive Summary will be posted on the IAEE website in advance of the official publication date of the issue of Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy that carries the author’s article. The purpose of this new, stand-alone document is to communicate the central ideas contained in the research to the nontechnical reader. It is the editors’ belief that this will benefit not only authors, whose work will be more widely recognized, but also the broader policy, industry and governmental communities, which are constantly in search of answers to difficult energy-related questions.


The corresponding author will be notified of the receipt of the paper for publication consideration as well as follow-up correspondence pertaining to the acceptance/rejection of publication. Authors may be asked to rewrite the article for better clarity, brevity, etc.

If your article is approved for publication, a PDF copy will be provided to you after being typeset for review. The publisher reserves the right to publish your typeset article if we do not hear from you within seven days.

The Editors of the Economics of Energy & Environmental Policy (EEEP) may submit papers for publication consideration by following the procedures and criteria as approved by the Board of Editors.

Authors may contact the Managing Editors to discuss EEEP Submission Guideline details.

All papers submitted to EEEP will be screened to ensure they are appropriate for the journal. Papers that are deemed to be incompatible with the journal, or to suffer from a fundamental flaw that renders them unpublishable, will be rejected prior to sending out for review. Because processing a submission entails various costs, it is the journal’s policy to retain most of the submission fee for any paper that is rejected prior to sending out for review.
