SBCA is again co-sponsoring symposia with the SRA's Economics and Benefits Analysis Specialty Group (EBASG) at the 2016 Annual Meeting, December 11 -15, 2016 in San Diego, California. EBASG focuses on the use of economic analyses to support risk-management decisions. Our goals include encouraging better integration between risk assessors, economists, and others involved in risk-management decisions.

In order to provide users quick access to the Journal of Benefit-Cost Analysis, the SBCA would like to offer a limited number of reduced rate institutional subscriptions to the journal for the entire year 2016.

This offer is made possible by funding from a MacArthur Foundation grant of a generous but finite amount; subsidized subscriptions are available first come, first served.

Your institution can subscribe to the journal for just $25 (full 2016 rate $289). This subscription will entitle you to access volumes 1-7 (2010-2016) of JBCA online and must be activated by August 1, 2016.
