Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems publishes peer-reviewed papers and rapid communications based on original research as well as reviews, perspectives and commentaries of interest to an international readership. Coverage extends to all aspects of carbon and nutrient cycling as well as management in soil-crop-animal systems, their effects in ecological, agronomic, environmental and economic terms. The range of topics includes agronomic, agroforestry, livestock, pasture, organic agriculture, bioenergy, and fallow systems or system components such as plants and the fertility, chemistry, physics or faunal and micro-biology of soils, as well as system inputs from and losses to the anthroposphere, atmosphere and hydrosphere. 

  • Addresses all aspects of carbon and nutrient cycling in systems across scales including field and watershed observations, budgets and modeling
  • Range of topics includes agronomic, agroforestry, livestock, pasture, organic agriculture, bioenergy and fallow systems and their components
  • 100% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

  • 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.
