David,

Thanks for listing the AJAE, but just to be clear: We are not doing a special issue. Rather, we are fast-tracking papers on COVID-19 while maintaining our usual standards. The resulting papers will end up in a *virtual* special issue, since the AJAE does not do special issues (except for the one last year celebrating 100 years of the journal).
