Agricultural Engineering International: the CIGR Ejournal
Publisher: International Commission of Agricultural Engineering
The International Commission of Agricultural Engineering (CIGR) was
founded in 1930 in Belgium and aims at networking regional and
national associations of agricultural engineering.
CIGR is an international, non-governmental, non-profit organization
providing a networking system for regional and national societies of
agricultural engineering as well as private and public companies and
individuals all over the world.
The main aims of CIGR are:
* to stimulate the development of science and technology in the field
of Agricultural Engineering;
* to encourage education, training, and mobility of young professionals;
* to encourage inter-regional mobility;
* to facilitate the exchange of research results and technology;
* to represent the profession at a world-wide level;
* to work towards the establishment of new associations, both at
national and regional levels, and the strengthening of existing ones;
* to perform any other activity that will help to develop
Agricultural Engineering and Allied Sciences.
The CIGR Ejournal provides a means for communication and exchange of
research results and other more general information among
agricultural engineers and others interested in agricultural
engineering subjects around the world. It provides an international
forum for the scientific discussion of techniques and approaches
leading to a higher degree of efficiency in agricultural production,
the responsible use of natural resources, a cleaner environment,
greater sustainability, value-added processing and other subjects of
interest to agricultural engineers. It also includes economic
considerations and policy issues of interest to agricultural
engineers and other disciplines.
Categories for consideration by the Editorial Board include:
* Original research papers
* Invited overview papers
* Papers presenting new software for agricultural engineering
* 1 or 2 page short papers on research in progress or other items of
* Student reports
* Book reviews
* Letters to the editor, comments and critique of published material
* Other topics as may evolve.
