Aims and Scope
Food and Energy Security will seek to publish high quality and high impact original research on agricultural crop and forest productivity to improve food and energy security. Primary research articles should report hypothesis driven investigations that provide new insights into mechanisms and processes that determine productivity and properties for exploitation. Review articles are welcome but they must be critical in approach and provide particularly novel and far reaching insights.
Food and Energy Security offers authors a forum for the discussion of the most important advances in this field and promotes an integrative approach of scientific disciplines. Papers must contribute substantially to the advancement of knowledge.
Volume 1 Issue I was released in July 2012, Issue II.I follow in March 2013 and II.I will be published presently.
Examples of areas to be covered in Food and Energy Security include:
Breeding & Genetics
Quality and Composition
Food Crops and Bioenergy Feedstocks
Developmental, Physiology and Biochemistry
Pest and Disease Management
Post Harvest Biology

AAB has recently launched this new on-line only, open access, peer-reviewed journal. It is publishing high quality articles from all over the world and is actively seeking submissions from emerging countries with expanding agricultural research communities. Papers from China, India, other parts of Asia and South America will be particularly welcome. The Editorial Board headed by Editor-in-Chief, Professor Martin Parry, is determined to make FES the leading publication in its sector and will be aiming for a top-ranking impact factor from the outset. This new journal, published jointly with Wiley-Blackwell, will provide an innovative global platform to enhance the dissemination of research and developments in applied biology to a wider audience. As the journal matures the platform will become more interactive and be a focus for rapid and effective communications across the areas represented by the AAB.
