About the Journal

An international scientific, peer-reviewed  journal founded by the Poznań University of Life Sciences, publishing original papers on the application of socioeconomic analysis to agri-food sector and rural areas.  The Journal aims to provide policy guidance to governments and planners. The emphasis is on quantitative or analytical work, which is novel and relevant. In particular, we welcome the submission of research that explores agri-food sector and rural development in emerging economies. However, international, cross-country comparative studies are also welcome. 

Journal of Agribusiness and Rural Development is the open access and non-profit enterprise. The published papers may be collected, read and downloaded free of charge – with author's rights reserved.
