Guidelines for Authors
Review of Agrarian Studies invites articles on agrarian studies – on the forces and relations of production in agriculture and in rural areas, and on different aspects of social formations in the countryside. The Review carries theoretical and empirical articles on social, economic, historical, political, and scientific and technological aspects of agriculture and rural societies.
Articles submitted for publication in Review of Agrarian Studies should neither previously have been published nor currently be under consideration for publication elsewhere. The Review is peer-reviewed; articles will be reviewed by the editorial board and, where they are to be considered for publication, by an external reviewer or reviewers. The Review recognises authors as copyright holders in principle; all authors are requested to read the specific copyright terms of the Review of Agrarian Studies.
Manuscripts should be submitted either directly via the Review's website (strongly recommended) or as an email attachment in any open-source word processing and spreadsheet or MS Word and Excel formats. The Review also invites submissions in other media -- photographic, audio, and video material, for instance – in its fields of interest. To view a list of accepted rich media formats, see below. Manuscripts and other material not uploaded directly should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Articles will be edited and formatted in the journal's house style.
The Review publishes online first and aggregates online content into a print edition every six months. Rich media content (photographic, audio and video material, hyperlinks and interactivity) will be made available only online.
