Double-blind peer review

The GJAE is a double blind peer reviewed scientific journal open to both discerning contributions from areas of basic research and articles on applied research. As it targets both basic and applied research activities, the GJAE is interesting for academic scientists, teaching staff and scientifically interested staff of public authorities, business and industry.


All agricultural markets are becoming increasingly more international. Research and the accompanying journal concepts are following this development. That is why GJAE will appear in English language only.

GJAE appears quarterly. In addition special issues may be published on topical themes. So send us your article in English.
