Aim & Scope

The Journal of Agricultural Engineering (India) [JAEI] is a peer-reviewed Journal and publishes interdisciplinary basic and applied research manuscripts of engineering and technology to address agricultural, food, and biological systems’ problems. Manuscripts describing engineering innovations for management of natural resources, farm mechanisation, post-harvest management, energy-use in agriculture, application of engineering principles in management of field crops, horticulture, livestock, dairy, fisheries and those reporting research seeking to understand and model the physical processes underlying agricultural systems are considered. The journal publishes manuscripts of both theoretical and applied nature, with a special focus on experimental research, new design criteria, numerical modelling and innovative approaches relating to all fields of agricultural engineering and technology. This journal uses double-blind review process.

The Journal of Agricultural Engineering (India) accepts only original research manuscripts and review articles, and submission of a manuscript will be considered to imply that no similar manuscript has been or is being submitted elsewhere. The following three types of manuscripts are invited for publication:

  • Original research manuscript: Report results of original research, significant findings of original research, and materials should not have been previously published elsewhere. Research manuscripts are the normal type of manuscripts published and make up the main content of the Journal. They should not normally exceed 15 Journal pages.
  • Review manuscript: Intended to be in-depth studies of the state-of-the-art in a chosen subject that provide new insights or interpretation of the subject through thorough and systematic evaluation of available evidences. They should not normally exceed 15 Journal pages.
  • Research Note: Reports a concise, but complete, description of a limited or preliminary investigation, enabling important scientifically proven findings to be speedily communicated, and facilitate the reporting of work not meriting a full-length research manuscript. They should not exceed Journal pages.

The Journal of Agricultural Engineering (India) is a subscription-based journal. To attract and publish large numbers of high-quality manuscripts, and peer reviewer recognition, the Indian Society of Agricultural Engineers instituted the Best Paper Award and the Best Reviewer Award. These awards are announced annually in the Annual Convention of Indian Society of Agricultural Engineers.

Peer Review Statement

All submissions to this journal undergo rigorous peer review. After initial editorial screening for completeness and technical suitability as per the aims and scope of the journal, a submitted manuscript undergoes double-blind review by at least two independent, expert peer reviewers, although more than two referees are usually invited. Where an Editor is on the author list or has any other competing interest regarding a specific manuscript, another member of the Editorial Board is assigned to oversee peer review process. Editors will consider the peer-reviewed reports when making a decision, but are not bound by the opinions or recommendations therein. Authors receive peer review reports with the editorial comments/ decision on their manuscript.
