''Contingent valuation versus choice experiments: a meta-analysis application exploring the determinants of the time for publication acceptance''
( 2014, Vol. 34 No.3 )
In this paper, we test whether the time it takes for a submitted paper to be accepted by the editor(s) is sensitive to the stated preference method used. Two methods are considered: the Contingent Valuation (CV) and the Choice Experiments (CE). A meta-analysis based on a sample of 129 papers published in Resource and Energy Economics, Ecological Economics and Environmental and Resource Economics between 2005 and 2011 is conducted. The dependent variable in the ordinary least squares regression model is the number of days between the submission of the paper and the acceptance of the paper, referred to as Time for Publication Acceptance, or TPA. The main results are that TPA is lower for CE papers than CV papers, especially for those that aim at improving the method which can be interpreted as a higher academic demand in the CE field. However, a convergence is observed over the years.
