Agronomy for Sustainable Development was established in 1981 as Agronomie. At that time, less than 10% of articles were in English. The journal was greatly reformed from 2003 to 2006, including a new title, a new cover design, and a switch to English-only publishing.
Agronomy for Sustainable Development welcomes multidisciplinary articles that bridge agronomy with ecological, genetic, environmental, economical and social sciences. Monodisciplinary articles that will constitute the grounds of sustainability from environmental, economical or social viewpoints are also welcome. Systemic approaches at the livestock, field, farm, landscape and global scales, and participatory research are encouraged.
Articles of Agronomy for Sustainable Development are freely accessible one year after their publication on the HAL open archive.
