Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research

Journal update (31/7/2020): Please note that the Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research is currently in the process of changing publisher. There will be some delay in the processing and handling of papers in the coming weeks. We hope to have the website up and running within the next month. Please bear with us in this transitional period. Please contact ijafr@teagasc.ie if you have any urgent queries.

The Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research is a peer reviewed, open access, scientific journal published by Teagasc (Agriculture and Food Development Authority, Ireland). The journal does not have article processing charges (APCs) nor article submission charges and copyright remains with the authors.

Manuscripts on any aspect of research with direct relevance to Irish agriculture and food production are considered for publication, including; plant and animal sciences, food science, agri-environmental science, soils, engineering, buildings, economics and sociology.

The work must demonstrate novelty and relevance to the field of research. Papers published or offered for publication elsewhere will not be considered, but the publication of an abstract does not preclude the publication of the full paper in this journal.

In line with top international standards in academic publishing, the Irish Journal of Agricultural and Food Research is fully online and open access. The journal uses the Editorial Manager (Aries) submission and tracking system. Papers are freely available online and distributed digitally by Sciendo to indexing and abstracting databases and thousands of libraries worldwide. Papers are plagiarism checked and references are live-linked using CrossRef/Web of Science.

The editorial committee welcomes all submissions. Readers can sign up for e-TOC alerts and also share papers via social media on the journal’s website.
