COVID-19 and impact on peer review: As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Call for papers: The scientific bases of biodynamic agriculture

The scientific bases of biodynamic agricultureWe are pleased to announce a new thematic series on ‘The scientific bases of biodynamic agriculture' to help collate research on the different topics inherent to biodynamic agricultural practices which impact on areas such as crop yield, soil fertility, product quality, composting quality and plant resistance.

The thematic series is now open for submission of original research and review articles. Click here to submit your manuscript to this series.
