The series Agriculture and Environment publishes exclusively original research papers, review papers, and in some cases technological descriptions (provided that new methods are presented) in various fields of agriculture – with specific focus on plant breeding and protection – and environment, including management, protection, and evaluation.

We particularly encourage empirical field studies addressing cross-scale interactions between agricultural practices and their environment. Papers must have well-elaborated methods, including well-designed replications over the seasons and years. Review papers must have well-documented and current data, including meta-analyses. New methods that include well-designed and modern technologies are encouraged.

All manuscripts are initially screened on their topic suitability. The Journal’s core subject-matter fields/topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Complex relationships and mechanisms between biological, chemical, and physical features and agroecosystems.
  • Particular crop production, protection, and their complex interrelations.
  • Plant–animal interactions in agroecosystems, with particular focus on plant protection, plant breeding, and plant chemical defences.
  • Abiotic interactions between agroecosystems and the environment (soil, air, water, toxins).
  • Biological and ecological processes that govern ecosystem services.
  • Complex relationships between anthropological factors and agroecosystems, including all human impacts on the environment and on agroecosystems.
  • Empirical studies related to land-use intensification and other human impacts (soil degradation and erosion, water and waste management, and associated mitigation approaches).
  • Empirical studies on biodiversity conservation, land management, and ecological restoration.

The following topics are discouraged:

  • Only locally important questionnaire-based surveys made on local populations and plots.
  • Studies involving only locally important crops.
  • Surveys on consumers’ preferences and opinions.
  • Animal breeding and health studies of any form.
  • Political opinions and any other related surveys.
  • Studies on theoretical models or methodologies with low application possibilities.

Why Submit

Fast process, strict review.

  • All submitted papers are screened carefully for their eligibility, checked with highly sophisticated anti-plagiarism software, and authors are informed about the results.
  • All papers are revised first by the series editors, and a decision on their suitability for any further external review is reported in a few days.
  • Decisions, based on external reviewers’ submitted reports on the papers, are made within 4–6 weeks.
  • Papers accepted are published online first within a short period of time.

Papers are published in the Gold Open Access regime – no fees or any charge from authors are requested.
