The International Journal of Agricultural
Sustainability is a cross-disciplinary and
peer-reviewed journal dedicated to
advancing the understanding of
sustainability in agricultural and food
systems. The IJAS publishes both
theoretical developments and critical
appraisals of new evidence on what is
not sustainable about current or past
agricultural and food systems, as well as
on transitions towards agricultural and
rural sustainability at farm, community,
regional, national and international
levels, and through food supply chains.
It is committed to clear and consistent
use of language and logic, and the use of
appropriate evidence to substantiate
empirical statements.
The editors and board welcome original
and high-quality contributions from all
countries (developing, industrialized and
those in transition), and from scientists
and practitioners from both the natural

and social sciences. As the primary
concern is to understand agricultural
sustainability better, the editors and
board neither include nor exclude any
agricultural technology for ideological
reasons.

The IJAS will increase knowledge on
what technologies and processes are
contributing to agricultural sustainability
in real world situations, what policies,
institutions and economic structures are
preventing or promoting sustainability,
and what relevant lessons should be
learned. The IJAS will only accept critical
reviews if they present genuinely novel
perspectives on agricultural
sustainability, and is unlikely to publish
papers with just a single disciplinary
focus. The topics addressed in cross-
disciplinary papers in the journal will
address issues in the following six
areas overleaf.
