Emirates Journal of Food and Agriculture signed agreement with CrossCheck for Plagiarism detection in submitted manuscripts

 

Emirates Journal of Food and Agriculture signed agreement with CrossCheck for Plagiarism detection in submitted manuscripts

Emirates Journal of Food and Agriculture is now a member of CrossCheck, a service offered by CrossRef and powered by iThenticate software. CrossCheck is a multi-publisher initiative to screen published and submitted content for originality.  iThenticate is a plagiarism screening service that verifies the originality of content submitted before publication. iThenticate checks submissions against millions of published research papers, and billions of web content. Authors, researchers and freelancers can also use iThenticate to screen their work before submission by visiting www.ithenticate.com.

Emirates Journal of Food and Agriculture uses the iThenticate software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. Wherever you see the “CrossCheck Deposited” or “CrossCheck Depositor” logos, you can be reassured that the publisher whose content you are reading is committed to actively combating plagiarism and publishing original research. View Emirates Journal of Food and Agriculture’s plagiarism policy here. To find out more about CrossCheck visit http://www.crossref.org/crosscheck.html

iThenticate is also available to authors and researchers who wish to check their papers before submission.  iThenticate compares submitted documents to extensive data repositories to create a comprehensive Similarity Report, which highlights and provides links to any significant text matches, helping to ensure that you are submitting an original and well-attributed document. iThenticate for Researchers is a separate service to CrossCheck.

Special Issue on "Wheat Landraces: Source of Sustenance and Sustainability"

 

Call for papers

Thousands of years of cultivation aided by natural and human selection have resulted in the evolution of immense diversity of genotypes in wheat. A number of socio-cultural factors, food traditions, and agro-ecological environments in the Old World favored the cultivation and utilization of diverse wheat genetic resources constituting what is now known as landraces. Each wheat landrace has particular significance in the food culture, as a source of daily diet, and of food and drink for special occasions.

Traditional management of wheat landraces contributed more to the conservation of a general level of diversity, as a source of sustenance and sustainability, than to the conservation of genetically stable and distinct populations. Wheat landraces embody not only diverse alleles and genotypes, but also evolutionary processes such as gene flow between different populations, mainly via seed exchange and local knowledge systems such as folk taxonomies and information about selection for specific quality attributes or for heterogeneous environments.

 

The objective of this special issue of EJFA is to provide state of knowledge on wheat landraces in developing as well as developed countries; and to link researchers from developed and developing countries to share research questions, methodologies, and germplasm for future development and advances in wheat science.

Potential topics include, but not limited to:

·      Wheat Landraces: Population structure and function

·      Local wheat landraces: private and public value;

·      Local seed saving and exchange systems;

·      Eco-physiology and multi-trait evolution;

·      Genetic resources for biotic and abiotic stress tolerance (including disease, insect, drought, salinity, etc.)

·      Adaptation to climate change;

·      Quality and nutritional attributes;

·      Traditional and new food products;

·      Genetic improvement and breeding methodologies;

·      Future research and development needs.

 

Manuscripts Due: March 31, 2013

First Round of Reviews: May 1, 2013

Publication Date: August 1 2013.

CrossRef DOI Number for EJFA

 

Recently, EJFA signed agreement with CrossRef, a collaborative reference linking service that functions as a sort of digital swithboard. CrossRef hold no full text content, but rather effects linkages through CrossRef Digital Object Identifiers (DOI), which are tagged to article metadata supplied by the participating publishers. The end result is an efficient, scalable linking system through which a researcher can click on a reference citation in a journal and access the cited article. Now, EJFA articles have DOI numbers. Assigning DOI number for back issues is underway.

EJFA is now indexed in WHO’s HINARI  database

We are pleased to announce that "Emirates Journal of Food and Agriculture".
is now fully indexed in World Health Organization (WHO)’s biomedical indexing service HINARI  database [
http://www.who.int/hinari/en/] . This will enhance the visibility and discoverability of all the articles published from 1987 until now.

HINARI Program set up by WHO together with major publishers, enables developing countries to gain access to one of the world's largest collections of biomedical and health literature. More than 8,500 journals and 7000 e-books (in 30 different languages) are now available to health institutions in more than 100 countries, areas and territories benefiting many thousands of health workers and researchers, and in turn, contributing to improve world health. Its head office is at Geneva 27, Switzerland.

In this context, we extent our deep gratitude to all our Authors, Editors and Reviewers. We hope to get your continued co-operation in future also.
