About International Agricultural Engineering Journal (IAEJ)

International Agricultural Engineering Journal (IAEJ) was launched at the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Bangkok, Thailand in 1992. Since 1992, IAEJ has been sponsored and published by the Asian Association for Agricultural Engineering (AAAE) with a frequency of four issues per year and it is the official journal of AAAE. It is published only in print copy and over 350 papers in 20 volumes have been published during past 20 years.

IAEJ is an international and multidisciplinary journal. The major goal of this journal is to communicate advances in agricultural engineering, with a particular preference to Asia, to researchers, practicing engineers and decision makers of developing countries. IAEJ publishes peer-reviewed research papers (both theoretical and applied) and state-of-the-art reviews related to agricultural and biosystems engineering. Its scope includes soil and water engineering, farm machinery, ergonomics, farm structures, renewable energy, postharvest technology, food process engineering, agricultural biotechnology, IT in agriculture, and emerging technologies. Subjects of basic engineering and science such as instrumentation, precision agriculture, protected cultivation, global warming, climate change, terramechanics, environment in agriculture, and new materials are also included in the scope of IAEJ.

IAEJ publishes original papers only and the submission of a manuscript will be taken to imply that the contributions are original and that no similar manuscript has been or is being submitted to other journals. Manuscripts are solicited from all areas of specialization in agricultural and biosystems engineering. It is a valuable service provided by AAAE to its members to publish papers in “International Agricultural Engineering Journal” regularly. IAEJ adopts Chicago Style and follows the ‘IAEJ Guidelines for Authors’ strictly.

Through the persistent efforts of the former Editors-in-Chief of IAEJ, Prof. David Gee-Clough, Prof. Vilas M. Salokhe, Prof. Rameshwar S. Kanwar and the former Executive Editor-in-Chief Dr. Wang Yingkuan, the IAEJ has grown into one of the prestigious international journals in the field of agricultural engineering. We thank all the former Editors-in-Chief and editorial board members for their leadership and generous supports, and special thanks should also go to the current Editor in-Chief, Prof. Li Shujun, Assistant Editors, Dr. Sahdev Singh, Dr. Peeyush Soni, and Guest Editor, Dr. Philip W. Gassman for their excellent services.

IAEJ is indexed and abstracted in: EI Compendex (Core), Scopus, Elsevier Bibliographic Databases, Agricultural Engineering, Abstract by CAB International, Global Health (GH), Chemical Abstracts (CA), Cambridge Scientific Abstracts-Natural Sciences (CSA-Nat Sci), Cambridge Scientific Abstracts-Technology (CSA-T), Pollution Abstracts, Ulrich’s Periodicals Directory (Ulrich PD), and Applied Mechanics Review.

In 2010, the AAAE Secretariat and the Editorial Office of the IAEJ have been transferred from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Bangkok to Chinese Academy of Agricultural Mechanization Sciences (CAAMS), Beijing, China. Prof. Li Shujun, President of AAAE and President of CAAMS, is currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief of IAEJ.

IAEJ is a quarterly journal, publishing four issues per year. In order to accelerate and streamline the manuscript handling process, an online manuscript submission system, together with the website of IAEJ will be set up in 2012. After the launch, this journal may provide open access to its contents in the near future on the principle that making research findings freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge, which in turn can enhance the usefulness and visibility of IAEJ.

At present, all the manuscripts and other correspondence should be directed to the Editorial Office of IAEJ at the address given below.
