Journal of Agricultural Policy and Food Security (APFS) - Overview

It is great pleasure to announce about the launch of a new journal providing a scholarly forum for the discussion of the most crucial issues of agricultural policy and food security. Journal of Agricultural Policy and Food Security (APFS) offers a mixture of refereed papers taking a synthetic view of the sustainable crop production systems, sociology and economics of crop production, agricultural development, access to food, and nutrition. The journal will cover the principles and practice of crop production systems and food security per se, taking an overview of the subject and analyzing it with a broad perspective over its many component disciplines. To address the challenge of global food security, the journal will probe the constraints - physical, biological, socio-economic and political - which not only limit crop and food production but also the ability of people to access a healthy diet. APFS is crafted to become a world-class journal, publishing multi-disciplinary and geographically differentiated relationships between production systems, policy arenas and their inter-relationships.
