Editorial review and processing

Peer Reviewed. All submitted manuscripts are screened by the Scientific Editor for importance, substance, appropriateness for the journal, general scientific quality and amount of new information provided. Those failing to meet the current standards are rejected without further review. Those meetings these initial standards are sent to at least two expert referees for peer review. No referee identity is disclosed to the corresponding author and no author identity is disclosed to any referee (double-blind). Referee comments are reviewed by an Associate Editor, often after allowing the author to make changes in response to any comments from referees. The Associate Editor then advises the Scientific Editor to either accept or reject the manuscript. The Scientific Editor informs the corresponding author of the final decision. The review process ordinarily is completed within 4-6 months. If the process is delayed beyond that point, the corresponding author will be notified.

Rejected manuscripts. Rejected manuscripts including original illustrations and photographs will be returned to authors.

Accepted manuscripts. The corresponding author will be asked to review a copy-edited page proof. The corresponding author (on behalf of all authors) is responsible for all statements appearing in the galley proofs. The corresponding author will be informed of the estimated date of publication.

Publication Ethics - Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANRES)

These ethical guidelines have been adapted from ethical principles outlined by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). They serve as a framework for ensuring ethical conduct in research, writing, and peer review processes within the Agriculture and Natural Resources.

Ethical Guidelines for Authors

These guidelines help promote integrity, transparency, and responsible behavior among authors in academic publishing. They serve as a reference for authors to maintain high ethical standards throughout the research and publication process. The ethical guidelines for authors cover seven topics:

1. Originality and Plagiarism: Authors should ensure that their work is original and properly acknowledge the work of others through citations in the Acknowledgements section. Plagiarism in any form is unacceptable.

2. Multiple Submissions: Authors should not submit the same manuscript to more than one journal simultaneously. Simultaneous submissions can lead to issues of duplicate publication, which is unethical.

3. Authorship and Acknowledgments: All individuals who have made a substantial contribution to the research should be listed as authors. Others who have contributed in a smaller capacity should be acknowledged appropriately.

4. Data Integrity: Authors are responsible for the accuracy and integrity of the research presented. Fabrication, falsification, or selective reporting of data is unethical.

5. Conflicts of Interest: Authors should disclose any financial or personal relationships that might influence the research or its interpretation.

6. Ethical Review and Consent: Authors should ensure that their research involving humans or animals has been conducted ethically, following appropriate guidelines and obtaining necessary approvals. Informed consent must be obtained from participants. ANRES requests the submission of copies of informed consent from human subjects in clinical studies or IRB approval documents.

7. Disclosure of Funding Sources: Authors should disclose the sources of financial support for their research and any potential conflicts of interest related to funding.
