Food and Energy Security
Food and Energy Security is published by Wiley-Blackwell in association with the Association of Applied Biologists (AAB).
Food and Energy Security seeks to publish high quality and high impact original research on agricultural crop and forest productivity to improve food and energy security. It will be actively seeking submissions from emerging countries with expanding agricultural research communities. Papers from China, other parts of Asia, India 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.
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.
