About the Journal

Aims and Scope

The Open Agriculture Journal is an Open Access online journal, which publishes research articles, reviews/mini-reviews and letters in all areas of agricultural science. Topics covered include, agronomy; plant and animal breeding; genetics; agricultural biotechnology; crop physiology and agroecology; soil science and agroclimatology; agricultural economics and rural sociology; and sustainable systems. Agricultural biotechnology (including tissue culture, molecular markers, molecular diagnostics, vaccines, genetic engineering, genome editing as well as synthetic biology) to modify living organisms: microorganisms, fungi, plants and animals).

The scope of the journal includes but is not limited to:

  • Crop protection and Cultivation
  • Animal Science and Aquaculture
  • Pharmacognosy and Pharmaceutical Development
  • Environmental implications of agricultural land
  • Horticulture
  • Forestry
  • Agricultural Sciences, including Genetics and Agricultural Biotechnology
  • Environmental Sciences, including prevention and correction of adverse environmental effects (e.g., soil degradation, waste management, bioremediation)
