Publishing high quality and widely available journals promotes high standards of scholarship in research and development; encourages the development of an international community of researchers who communicate regularly; and makes scientific and development communication clear and easily available. Experience in Africa and other developing countries has consistently revealed low standards in journal publishing, which is often irregular or unsustainable. There are weaknesses in management and poor financial viability, and a scarcity of practical information about journal publishing. This book aims to address these constraints and needs, and strengthen the publishing efficiency of journal editors and publishers. It is intended for young and experienced editors and publishers of journals in agricultural and rural development in developing countries, especially those of Africa; and should also provide a useful starting point for persons wishing to develop careers in agricultural journal editing and publishing.
