Advances in Agricultural Science publishes original theoretical, experimental and technical contributions in the various fields of Agricultural science (Physiology, Genetics, Agricultural engineering, etc.) at diverse levels of integration. Opinions expressed in the journal are the sole responsibility of the authors and publication does not imply the editors’ agreement.
Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis or as an electronic pre-print), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and tacitly or explicitly by the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, including electronically without the written consent of the copyright-holder.
This journal is an Open Access journal. All articles published Open Access will be immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download. Open access publishing is not without costs. Advances in Agricultural Science therefore levies an article-processing charge of $75 for each article accepted for publication.
Types of paper
Advances in Agricultural Science publishes several types of articles: Reviews, Papers and Short Papers. Articles for Reviews are either invited by the editor or proposed by the authors for the editor’s prior agreement. Reviews should not exceed 40 typewritten pages and Short Papers no more than approximately 8 typewritten pages. The fundamental character of Advances in Agricultural Science remains that of a journal for original results.
