Aims & Scope

The Journal accepts manuscripts in the areas of agriculture, livestock, forestry and natural resources. Manuscripts submitted for publication must be original reports of research not simultaneously submitted to or previously published in any other scientific or technical journal and must make a significant contribution to the advancement of scientific knowledge.

Short articles which do not qualify for publication as full scientific papers, but can make a significant contribution to the advancement of scientific knowledge, can be accepted for publication as ‘Journal Briefs'.

Critical review and interpretation papers are also acceptable for publication subject to the normal review process.

Manuscripts resulting from symposia/conferences having appropriate subject matter are also considered for publication as a compilation in a single ‘Special Issue' of the Journal.

Symposia/Conferences organisers desiring to publish a compilation of manuscripts in the Journal should contact the Editor-in-Chief with an outline of the overall purpose of the symposium and reasons justifying why the manuscripts should be published as a Special Issue of the Journal. If the request is accepted, then the Symposia/Conferences organisers would be required to instruct the authors to prepare their manuscripts in the Journal's format.
