Recruiting Topic Editors for Agriculture

Agriculture ( is an international open access journal led by Editor-in-Chief Prof. Dr. Les Copeland from The University of Sydney, Australia. In an effort to expand our offerings to the systems sciences community, we are recruiting scientists to join the Topic Board.

Agriculture is dedicated to the quick global dissemination of the results of cutting-edge science and technology research of crop and animal production, biosecurity, postharvest handling of produce, agricultural technology, management of the natural resource base for agricultural production (land, soil, and water), rural management and agricultural development, and agriculture in changing environments. Agriculture is covered by leading indexing services including Science Citation Indexed Expanded (SCIE) in Web of Science, where it will receive its first Impact Factor in June 2020, Scopus (Citescore 2.04), AGORA, AGRICOLA, AGRIS, etc.

We encourage applications from researchers with a background in a range of subject areas. Should you decide to serve on the Topic Board and depending on your availability, you would be responsible for some of the following tasks:

  • Setting up at least one Special Issue (SI) over two years in the journal and proposing a detailed strategy plan for the SI (including soliciting papers and promoting the SI);
  • Promoting the journal during conferences (adding 1–2 slides to your presentation, distributing flyers, recommending the journal to your colleagues, etc.);
  • Providing support for the Special Issues on topics related to your expertise or when the Guest Editor(s) is/are not available, including SI promotion via social media, pre-checking new submissions, making decisions, and providing advice on scientific cases.

Benefits: Topic Editors can publish one paper per year with 50% discount in a Special Issue on a topic that you recommend for Agriculture, and offer special discounts (20%) on any additional papers based on your invitation. They may be recommended for the role of Editorial Board Member after the Editorial Office's evaluation.
