Choices Magazine

Choices Magazine

Choices is an online peer-reviewed magazine published by the Agricultural & Applied Economics Association (AAEA) for readers interested in the policy and management of agriculture, the food industry, natural resources, rural communities, and the environment.[1] Choices is published quarterly and is available free online. It is currently one of three outreach products offered by AAEA, along with the more timely Policy Issues and the forthcoming Shared Materials section of the AAEA Web site.[2]



Choices was originally founded in 1986 as a print magazine. In 2002, the print version was discontinued and it was published solely online thereafter.

Each issue typically contains eight articles divided among two overarching themes. A guest editor is selected for each theme, who helps organize and edit the articles for that issue. Articles may also be submitted directly, independent of any theme. These articles were previously published under the heading of Grab Bag and are now called Submitted Articles.[3]


The current Editor of Choices is Walt Armbruster, Farm Foundation, President Emeritus. The Submitted Articles Editor is Clement Ward, Oklahoma State University. The Technical Editor is Patricia Keough-Wilson, Plains Harvest Communications.[4]
