A new journal, the Journal of Gender, Agriculture and food Security (Agri-Gender) has been launched with the aim of providing a platform for researchers and practitioners to share information on research work on gender, agriculture and food security. The aim of Agri-Gender is to promote interdisciplinary research related to gender and the agricultural and food sciences.
It is an open access, peer-reviewed and refereed journal that will publish in the fields of agriculture including livestock, fisheries, crop sciences, agriculture economics, rural development, food security and nutrition as they relate to gender. The journal will also publish papers on issues of women’s empowerment, feminist and gender studies. It seeks to promote debate, identify best practices and new ideas and make the links between theoretical and practical gender and agriculture work. It will combine rigorous research with insights from development initiatives across the world that have implications for policy and practice in promoting gender equality and the empowerment of women in the agriculture and food related sectors. The editors of the journal are drawn from research and academia across the globe.
The Journal is currently accepting papers for the August 2014 issue. More information on the journal requirements can be found at http://www.agrigender.net/.
