Don’t let your ideas fade....contribute to the journal!

Contributions are welcome and should be forwarded to the Managing Editor in an electronic form.

The Editor will consider for publication articles that provide information or an opinion which will be of interest to the diverse group of agriculturists and natural resource managers as a whole rather than specific disciplines. It is the intention of the Journal to provide general information on a variety of topics related to agri-industry and the natural resource environment while giving direction to those who wish to pursue a topic in detail. Submission of an article will be taken to mean that it has not been published elsewhere and has not been submitted for publication. Papers presented to conferences will not be considered to have been published unless they have been widely distributed as proceedings.

For articles, authors should also include a 50 word biography and a passport-size photograph (in jpeg format). Contributors need to refer to the Style Guidelines below prior to forwarding their article.
