A Guidebook on Journal Publishing for Agriculture and Rural Development
Few professional tasks require as much dedication and patience as launching and running a professional or academic journal. To do so in most developing countries, on scientific or agricultural topics, requires almost superhuman reserves of faith and stubbornness. In equal portions. All that you have to provide yourself. What A Guidebook on Journal Publishing for Agriculture and Rural Development can give you is the moral and superb professional support of some people who have been where you want to go. Their advice is given in well-organised chapters of sound text and clear diagrams, converting into journal production all you need to know about the intricate steps of being a publisher and editor. The special aspects of a journal are covered with as much clarity as diligence: the perennial issues of financial health, and the complex routines of acquiring and managing contributors, with the associated work of peer review. If you are as good as you think, and as good as this book, you have a good chance of success. It won t be for lack of wisdom, if it doesn t work out in the end. Good luck!
