Aims & Scope

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). Manuscripts on any aspect of research of direct relevance to Irish agriculture and food production, including plant and animal sciences, food science, agri-environmental science, soils, engineering, buildings, economics and sociology, will be considered for publication. The work must demonstrate novelty and relevance to the field of research.

Information for Contributors

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.

Our full requirements for submission, including our conflicts of interest disclosure and ethics policies are described in detail in our Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement.

Submission Process

Submissions to the IJAFR are made using Editorial Manager, the online submission and peer review system. Registration and access are available at https://www.editorialmanager.com/IJAFR/default.aspx.

Disclosures

Each author must disclose all financial relationships related to the subject of the paper.  This should include equity ownership, profit-sharing agreements, royalties, patents, and grants. Authors do not need to report the sums concerned. If none, state “No financial conflicts of interest”.
