AgEcon Search

Research in Agricultural and Applied Economics

AgEcon Search is a subject repository developed and maintained by the University of Minnesota Libraries and the Department of Applied Economics with support from the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association (AAEA). Included in AgEcon Search are working papers, conference papers, journal articles, reports, theses, and books.

AgEcon Search collects, indexes, and electronically distributes full text copies of scholarly research in the broadly defined field of agricultural economics including sub disciplines such as agribusiness, food supply, natural resource economics, environmental economics, policy issues, agricultural trade, and economic development.

In 2007, AgEcon Search was awarded the Oberly Award for Bibliography in the Agricultural or Natural Sciences and in 2011, it was the inaugural winner of the Innovation in Science & Technology Librarianship Award, both from the American Library Association.


AgEcon Search currently contains papers from over 250 educational institutions and associations from 40 different countries, including issues of over 100 journals
