Agriculture and Human Values is the journal of the Agriculture, Food, and Human Values Society. The Journal, like the Society, is dedicated to an open and free discussion of the values that shape and the structures that underlie current and alternative visions of food and agricultural systems.

To this end the Journal publishes interdisciplinary research that critically examines the values, relationships, conflicts and contradictions within contemporary agricultural and food systems and that addresses the impact of agricultural and food related institutions, policies, and practices on human populations, the environment, democratic governance, and social equity.

  • Offers open discussion of the values that shape and the structures that support food and agricultural systems in industrial and developing countries
  • Welcomes interdisciplinary research from sociology, anthropology, development, economics, geography, philosophy, environmental studies, health and nutrition science, crop and soil science, and other social and physical sciences that critically examines contemporary and alternative food and agricultural systems
  • Publishes original theoretical and empirical research; Discussion pieces to stimulate thinking in new directions and/or address debates in the field; Field reports that relay insightful observations from research sites and/or time-sensitive accounts pertinent to research; Reviews of the literature that integrate and synthesize knowledge in and/or across substantive fields of inquiry; Reviews of new or recently published monographs; and, occasionally, Symposia on issues relevant to broad readerships.

  • 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.
