About the Journal

The Journal of Agrometeorology (JAM) with ISSN 0972-1665 (print) and 2583-2980 (online), is an Open Access  quarterly publication of Association of Agrometeorologists, Anand, Gujarat, India, appearing in March, June, September and December.  Since its beginning in 1999 till 2016, it was a half yearly publication appearing in June and December. The journal publishes original articles, full length papers, short communications, and review articles in addition to invited papers in English language only. The Journal focuses and accepts high-quality original research papers dealing with all aspects of the agrometeorology of field and horticultural crops, including micrometeorology, crop weather interactions, crop models, climate change and agriculture, aero-biometeorology, agroclimatology, remote sensing applications in agriculture, mountains meteorology,  hydrometeorology, climate risk management in agriculture, climate impact on animals, fisheries and poultry, and operational agrometeorology. Articles are published after double-blind peer review and approval of the Editor. The journal is being indexed in most of the scientific indexing services worldwide and has its increasing impact factor since 2008. 


Aim and scope of the journal

Understanding the interdisciplinary science of agrometeorology concerned with discovering, defining and applying knowledge of the interactions between meteorological and hydrological factors and biological systems to practical use in agriculture is the decisive goal to extend and fully deploy knowledge of atmospheric and related processes to optimize agricultural production and hence, to increase profitability, decrease risk and feed an expanding global population, lastly to help conserve natural resources and protect our soil, plant, and water resources. The Journal of Agrometeorology (JAM) is aimed at bringing together top-quality research across the entire spectrum of Agrometeorological Science along with relevant work in related domains at no cost in long run. The Journal of Agrometeorology (JAM) is a peer-reviewed journal published by the Association of Agrometeorologists (AAM), Anand, India. The Journal focuses and accepts high-quality original research papers dealing with all aspects of the agrometeorology of field and horticultural crops, micrometeorology, micro-meteorology, crop weather interactions, crop simulation models, climate and agriculture modeling,  crop-pest-disease weather relationship, climatological impact and agroclimatic analysis, soil microclimate dynamics and modeling, remote sensing applications in agriculture, mountains meteorology & water resources, weather impact on animal science, fisheries and poultry, operational agrometeorology and weather based farm advisories.

We strongly believe that a scientific journal, being written, reviewed and edited by the domain experts and researchers themselves, should be accessible freely to the whole scientific community. Hence, we intend the Journal of Agrometeorology (JAM) to be a truly Open Access Journal, offering free access and online publishing of electronic supplementary materials.
