Indonesian Journal of Agricultural Sciences (IJAS)
The Official Journal of Indonesian Agricultural Sciences Association (IASA)

Aims and Scope

Indonesian Journal of Agricultural Sciences, was the first official journal of the Indonesian Agricultural Sciences Association (IASA), published in year 2001. It had an Indonesian focus coupled to an International outlook. The Journal was initially be dedicated to the publication of original papers from the world scientific community. In that way, the Journal would be instrumental in establishing closer relationships both personal and research oriented, amongst the scientists, research facilities and scientific societies in Indonesia and colleagues throughout the world.

The Journal was actually devoted to publication of original papers in the broad field of Agriculture including Forestry, Fisheries, Animal Husbandry, etc. Papers related to the new scientific technology such as genetics and molecular biology, which were applied to agricultural sciences, were welcomed on that time. However, we decided to stop the publication of this Journal because the Indonesian Agency for Agricultural Research and Development (IAARD) published another Journal which is ‘Indonesian Journal of Agricultural Science’, similar to our Journal only different in plural/singular form of ‘Science/s’ term, which began earlier on the previous year (2000). In consideration not to confusing Indonesian Agricultural Sciences communities and societies, we will soon start new publication of our Journal in another title of Journal.

IASA is a society of Indonesian agricultural scientists initiated in Japan. To exchange information related to agriculture and discuss Indonesian bio-resource management, annual meeting has been organized. By publishing the Journal, we certainly would like to communicate with the world scientific community. It is our vision that in that Journal would give to the good science of the Indonesia an international platform.
