Food and Energy Security

Food and Energy Security is a high quality and high impact open access journal publishing original research on agricultural crop and forest productivity to improve food and energy security. 

Aims and Scope
Food and Energy Security seeks to publish high quality and high impact original research on agricultural crop and forest productivity to improve food and energy security. It actively seeks submissions from emerging countries with expanding agricultural research communities. Papers from China, other parts of Asia, India and South America are particularly welcome.

The Editorial Board, headed by Editor-in-Chief Professor Christine Foyer, is determined to make FES the leading publication in its sector and will be aiming for a top-ranking impact factor.

Primary research articles should report hypothesis-driven investigations that provide new insights into mechanisms and processes that determine productivity and properties for exploitation. Review articles are welcome but they must be critical in approach and provide particularly novel and far-reaching insights.

Food and Energy Security offers authors a forum for the discussion of the most important advances in this field and promotes an integrative approach of scientific disciplines. Papers must contribute substantially to the advancement of knowledge.

Examples of areas covered in Food and Energy Security include:


  • Agronomy
  • Biotechnological Approaches
  • Breeding & Genetics
  • Climate Change
  • Quality and Composition
  • Food Crops and Bioenergy Feedstocks
  • Developmental, Physiology, and Biochemistry
  • Functional Genomics
  • Molecular Biology
  • Pest and Disease Management
  • Political, economic and societal influences on food security and agricultural crop production
  • Post Harvest Biology
  • Soil Science
  • Systems Biology

The journal is Open Access and published online. Submission of manuscripts to Food and Energy Security is exclusive via a web-based electronic submission and tracking system enabling rapid submission to first decision times.

Before submitting a paper for publication, potential authors should first read the Author Guidelines. Instructions as to how to upload your manuscript can be found on ScholarOne Manuscripts.
