About


Anbar Journal of Agricultural Sciences (AJAS) is a Journal of Scientific Research on Agricultural Sciences published by the University Of Anbar - College Of Agriculture since 2003 under the license of Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC-BY). The journal publishes twice a year (June and December). AJAS aims to disseminate distinguished scientific research to various fields of agricultural sciences. We invite original work and research in various fields of agricultural sciences and related papers, reviews and short communications of content related to agriculture written in Arabic and English. A double-blind peer-reviewing system is used to assure the quality of the publication. We are also using iThenticate to prevent plagiarism and to ensure the originality of our submitted manuscripts. The journal is not financially supported by any governmental or non-governmental organization.

Scope of the Journal

Aims

Anbar Journal of Agricultural Sciences (AJAS) is a quarterly international journal that accepts research articles, reviews and short communications of content related to agriculture. Research articles and short communications must report original work not previously published in any language and not under consideration for publication elsewhere. The main aim of AJAS is to publish papers that report research findings in agricultural sciences.

 

Scope      

Anbar Journal of Agricultural Sciences (AJAS) publishes original research papers, review papers, case reports.  AJAS is open access Journal, the publication is dedicated to bringing together intellectual and professional scientists, Research articles make an original and significant contribution to the field of study within the scope of the journal. These articles should be of interest to a broad audience, scientifically sound, well-written, and concise. Short communications must report completed work, not preliminary findings.

Reviews aim to provide an overview of an issue of great interest or topicality. Reviews will be invited by the Editorial Board. However, potential authors can suggest topics to the Editor-in-Chief. Authors must be experts and have several publications on the subject, as well as the public sectors who are engaged in efforts to understand the agricultural sciences in fields of:

1. Agriculture/Agronomy

Resources in the Agriculture/Agronomy category cover a number of agricultural sciences, including general agriculture, agricultural economics, agricultural engineering, agronomy, tillage research, agroforestry, horticulture, and crop protection and science.

2. Agricultural Chemistry

Resources in the Agricultural Chemistry category cover many aspects of chemistry related to disciplines in AJAS, including agrochemistry, agricultural biochemistry, food chemistry, analytical chemistry, cereal chemistry, and carbohydrate and lipid research.

3. Animal Sciences

Resources in the Animal Sciences category cover basic animal science, animal behavior, animal production science, poultry science, wildlife research, lab animal science, and zoology. Also covered are sub-disciplines of zoology such as primatology, mammalogy, herpetology, nematology, and malacology.

4. Aquatic Sciences

The Aquatic Sciences category covers resources from many water-related fields, including discipline-specific aquatic sciences such as aquatic botany and toxicology, phycology, and marine ecology. Also covered are resources concerned with marine and freshwater biology, fisheries science, aquaculture, and oceanography.

5. Agrobiology

The agrobiology category includes resources that individually cover a broad range of topics in the agrobiological sciences. Resources covering specific areas in agrobiology, such as general microbiology, protozoology, parasitology, biometrics, biological education, heredity, and evolutionary agrobiology are also placed in this category.

6. Biotechnology & Applied Microbiology of Agricultural Sciences

The Biotechnology & Nano Applied Microbiology category includes resources on a number of subjects that relate to the exploitation of living organisms or their components. In AJAS, the emphasis is on applied agrobiology, including industrial microbiology. Applications include industrial chemicals and enzymes, biosensors, bioelectronics, pesticide development, food, flavor and fragrance industry applications, waste treatment, and pollution bioremediation.

7. Entomology/Pest Control

Resources in the Entomology/Pest Control category include, among other topics, general entomology, applied entomology, regional entomology, apiculture, aquatic insects, insect biochemistry and physiology, economic entomology, integrated pest management (IPM), and pesticide science.

8. Agricultural Ecology

Environment/Ecology is a broad category covering interrelated disciplines. It includes resources dealing with pure and applied ecology, ecological modelling and engineering, ecotoxicology, and evolutionary ecology. In environmental science, some of the many areas covered are environmental contamination and toxicology, environmental health, monitoring, technology, geology, and management. Other fields covered are soil science and conservation, water resources research and engineering, climate change, and biodiversity conservation. Regional naturalist resources are also covered.

9. Soil Science and Land

Agriculture and land management, focusing on soil properties, soil, fertility, fertilization, and plant nutrition. Addressing soil salinity, soil chemistry, and soil physics. Conducting soil surveying and classification. Managing irrigation and drainage, along with water resources management, through understanding the relationship between soil and water. Land use planning and development. Utilizing remote sensing and GIS.

10. Food Science/Nutrition

The Food Science/Nutrition category includes resources in food science covering topics such as food additives and contaminants, food chemistry and biochemistry, food microbiology, nanotechnology technology, engineering, processing, quality, and safety. Also covered are meat science, dairy science, and brewing. The closely related area of nutrition is also covered in this category, including general nutrition, nutrition and metabolism, nutrition science, nutritional biochemistry, and dietetics.

11. Plant Sciences

The Plant Sciences category covers many areas, including broad botany resources, regional botany, mycology, bryology, plant physiology, forestry, weed science, plant pathology, economic botany, plant nutrition, photosynthesis research, experimental botany, and plant cell research.

12. Agricultural Economics
Agricultural development, Agricultural policy, Agricultural planning, Agricultural finance, and credit, Economics of Agricultural production, Farm Management, Economics of natural resources and marketing goods.

13. Agricultural Extension and Transfer of Agricultural Technologies
