AgBioForum is a an on-line agricultural economics journal (est. since
1998) that publishes non-technical peer-reviewed articles on the economics
and management of agrobiotechnology. Biotechnology research will
fundamentally change the way food is produced and distributed. For those
who have observed its twenty-year history, it has been also clear that
agro-biotechnology is not an abstract technical process. Its pace, form
and direction are shaped by the complex interplay of scientists,
entrepreneurs, policy makers, consumers, educators, environmental
activists, religious and civic leaders and other actors. AgBioForum
focuses on the interactions of agro-biotechnology with economics and with
AgBioForum publishes short, non-technical articles reporting on current
research. Both invited and submitted referred contributions are published.
AgBioForum is committed to providing a space where academics, private and
public sector analysts, and decision makers can present timely scientific
evidence to enrich the on-going public debate regarding the economic and
social impacts of agricultural biotechnology.
