Focus and Scope

The journal of Agricultural Engineering is a research journal published by Aleksandras Stulginskis University (ASU). It is an international medium for the publication of multidisciplinary and interface between agriculture engineering and other fields of science works. Language of publication are English.

The Aim of Agricultural Engineering publish original unpublished research papers dealing with mechanization of cropping and animal husbandry; green energy engineering; development, maintenance and reliability improvement of agricultural and other machinery; development of agriculture and other problems related to areas covered by agricultural engineering and interface between agriculture engineering and other fields of science.

The main Topic of the articles are:
Technologies of Cropping
Animal Husbandry Technologies
Technologies of Green Energy
Agricultural Machinery Construction and Reliability
Hydraulic Engineering
Production Storage Technologies
Land Management

Peer Review Process

Manuscripts submitted to Agricultural Engineering are subject to peer review to maintain the standards of the journal, promote rigorous research within the fields and to offer authors constructive feedback on their submissions.

Agricultural Engineering has a 'double blind' review process: Authors are not told who reviewed their paper, and referees do not know the name of the authors whose papers they review. The peer referees’ identity remains unknown to the authors.

Manuscripts are sent out for review electronically, and all correspondence takes place via e-mail. Although the peer review process is accelerated by the use of electronic communication, traditional, high-quality peer-review standards are applied to all manuscripts submitted to the journal.

Peer reviewers are asked to give their opinion on a number of issues pertinent to the quality and suitability of a paper, and to judge papers on grounds of originality and importance. We pride ourselves on providing constructive and formative feedback to authors.

Reviewer Guidelines Reviewers of Agricultural Engineering are asked to consider the following points during their evaluation:
•Does the subject of report correspond to the journal topic?
•What is the scholastic level of presented material? Is it Original article?
•Is the sufficient literature survey for the analysis of the research topic?
•Is the description of research methodology clear. 
•Does the analysis/ evaluation have a clear flow and logical argument?
•Does the analysis/evaluation link to an appropriate discussion and conclusions?
• Does the technical preparation of paper iz good (means quality of shedules, diagrams, figures)?

Peer reviewers will have five possible options, for any paper:
1. Accept manuscript (i.e. no need for any revision)
2. Accept after revision (i.e. accepted if the author makes the requested revisions)
3. Revise and resubmit (i.e. accepted or rejected after revisions have been made - paper will be sent out for another peer review round)
4. Reject manuscript (i.e. if the manuscript is not sufficiently developed for publication)
5. See comments (i.e. if the reviewer cannot choose from any of the above)

In addition, papers may be returned to authors by the Editors prior to review, if judged to be out of scope, out of the limits of the word length guidance or not sufficiently prepared for publication.

To facilitate rapid publication, authors are given a maximum of 6 weeks for revision. After 6 weeks, revised manuscripts will normally be considered new submissions.

 

Publication Frequency

From 2014 the issues of Agricultural Engineering is published as free access full on line research journal.
