Research papers. All work presented should have as it aim the development of agriculture concepts rather than the mere recording of facts. Preliminary, confirmatory or inconclusive work will not be published. Fragmentation of research into the “least publishable unit” is discouraged.
Research papers may be any length that is justified by their content. However, because of pressure for space in the journal, no paper will be accepted if it exceeds the minimum length required for precision in describing the experiments and clarity in interpreting them.
Short communications papers bringing particularly novel and significant findings will be published.
Reviews will be considered for publication. Prospective writers of reviews should first consult the Editor-in-chief and should enclose a short summary of the area they propose to cover.
