The Journal of Agricultural Science publishes papers concerned with the advance of agriculture and the use of land resources throughout the world. It publishes original scientific work related to strategic, applied and interdisciplinary studies in all aspects of agricultural science and exploited species, as well as reviews of scientific topics of current agricultural relevance.

Specific topics of interest include (but are not confined to): all aspects of crop and animal physiology; modelling of crop, animal, and integrated crop-livestock systems; the scientific underpinning of agronomy and husbandry; animal welfare and behavior; soil science and soil health; plant and animal product quality; plant and animal nutrition; engineering solutions; decision support systems; land use; environmental impacts of agriculture; agroforestry systems and forestry as it relates to agriculture; impacts of climate change; climate change adaptation and mitigation; climate-smart agriculture; carbon sequestration; rural biodiversity; experimental design and statistical analysis; and the application of new analytical and study methods, including genetic diversity and molecular biology approaches.

The journal welcomes submissions specialising in molecular biology that also include an element of agriculture or agricultural application, and submissions on integrated crop-livestock systems. The journal also publishes book reviews, letters, and guest editorials. Occasional themed issues are published such as climate change and agriculture, and modelling of crop and animal systems.
