Aims & Scope

  • Aims & Scope
    JIA seeks to publish those papers that are influential and will significantly advance scientific understanding in agriculture fields worldwide. JIA publishes manuscripts in the five categories focusing on the five core subjects listed below.
    Commentary section is a platform to exchange viewpoints, praise and criticism each other in the agricultural science community. Authors may submit comments in regard to the contents published previously in JIA or bring up other issues that may be of interest and relevant to JIA. Commentary will appear at the beginning of the issue with no abstract or keywords.

    Review describes new development and highlight future directions of a specialized or interdisciplinary significance in agriculture sciences. They should be focused on providing insights and summary/context on the published findings and introducing some new concepts or viewpoints for solving the important unresolved questions by presenting the research background, approach, and outlook of the field. Most Reviews are solicited by the editors, but unsolicited submissions may also be considered.
     Article presents important new research results through reproducible experimental design, using genetic, biochemical, cell and molecular biological methods, statistical analyses, and other scientific methods.
    Short Communication is for a concise, but independent report representing a significant contribution to agriculture sciences. It is intended to publish these results that are exceptional interest and particularly topical and relevant, but the preliminary results. It should be limited to 2500 words, and could include no more than two figures or tables.
    Letter discusses materials published in JIA previously or issues of general interest. It should be no more than 400 words.
