About the Journal

The African Journal of Horticultural Science (AJHS) publishes high-quality solicited and unsolicited articles in a wide range of applied and basic horticultural areas dealing with biotechnology, economics, marketing, education, extension, engineering, environment, policy, science, sociology, technology, training and other areas of horticultural science research. Special emphasis is given to development, research and technology transfer, both in physical and natural sciences, particularly as they relate to major areas of concern in horticulture. Other articles that may be submitted include:

  • Letters and viewpoints: Debates on policy issues relating to horticultural science, technology and industry; personal views and experiences relevant to important horticultural policy issues.
  • News and reports: Horticultural science and technology breakthroughs or matters of concern anywhere, but with direct relevance to Africa.
  • New technologies and products: Evaluation of new horticultural products and technologies developed for or relevant to African markets.
  • Announcements: Information on scientific conferences, training programmes, industrial exhibitions, awards of interest to the African scientific community.

All materials submitted for publication in the AJHS are peer-reviewed and edited. 

Our objective is to inform authors of the decision on their manuscript within six weeks of submission. Following acceptance, a paper will normally be published in the next available issue.

The AJHS is fully committed to providing free access to all articles as soon as they are published, to meet the needs of many horticultural stakeholders across the globe on African Horticultural Industry in general. We ask you to support this initiative by publishing your papers in AJHS.

The language used is English.
