New journal launched: World Agriculture

Via the FARM-Africa blog we’ve have had the good fortune to learn about the launch of a new independent journal, “World Agriculture: problems and potential” which was launched at the beginning of this month

The Editors of the journal have outlined very clearly what are the function and objectives are of this journal:

“The journal will publish peer-reviewed articles giving clear, unbiased and factual accounts of development in, or affecting world agriculture. Articles will intepret the influence of related subjects (including climate, forestry, fisheries and human population , economics transmissible disease, ecology) on these developments.”

Some of the issues that this first issue discusses and highlights include:  Agricultural development: is it still relevant for Sub-Saharan Africa?; Contract farming systems in Uganda; and Fish farming in Africa.

World Agriculture will be a quarterly publication and we also assume an open access journal (it’s not specifically outlined from the website). To view this journal please click here.
