Focus and Scope

FOCUS

The aims of MAEF-j is to provide a venue for academicians, researchers, and practitioners for publishing the original research articles or review articles.

 

SCOPE

The scope of the articles published in this journal deals with a contemporary issues in agriculture engineering, such as :

  1. Postharvest and food engineering: agricultural and food process engineering, postharvest engineering, physical and engineering properties, modeling and simulation.
  2. Energy and agricultural machinery : bioconversion engineering, renewable energy development, rural electricity and energy sources, life-cycle assessment, energy audit, precision agriculture, sensor and control.
  3. Land and water resources engineering: land management, irrigation engineering and management, soil properties engineering, watershed management, water and soil conservation engineering.
  4. Agricultural structures and environmental engineering: microclimate engineering, environment control design, construction and analysis of agricultural structures.
  5. Biophysics engineering: quality evaluation of food and agricultural products , physical chemistry of agricultural materials, physical properties of the soil-plant-atmosphere system, modelling of the water and energy exchange.
  6. Other agricultural and biosystem topics.

Peer Review Process

Musamus AE Featuring Journal (MAEF-J) published the only paper strictly following MAEF-J guidelines and template for preparation manuscript. All submitted manuscripts are going through a double-blind peer review process. Those papers are read by editorial members (upon field of specialization) and will be screened by Managing Editor to meet necessary criteria of MAEF-J publication. Manuscripts will be sent to two reviewers based on their historical experience in reviewing manuscript or based on their field of specialisation. MAEF-J has reviewing forms in order to keep same items reviewed by two reviewers. Then editorial board make a decision upon the reviewers comments or advice. Reviewers give their assessment on originality, clarity of presentation, contribution to the field/science, MAEF-J has four kind of decisions:

Accepted, as it is

  • Accepted by Minor Revisions (let authors revised with stipulated time)
  • Accepted by Major Revisions (let authors revised with stipulated time)
  • Rejected (generally, on grounds of outside of scope and aim, major technical description problems, lack of clarity of presentation)

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
