Journals Survey

Help the publications staff and the Editorial Board in determining the future direction of the journals by taking the survey.

The survey is anonymous. It will provide key feedback to help further improve our journals.

Initial results from this survey were shared at the annual meeting in a special session on "Publishing in ASABE Journals and Navigating the Publication Process." We will also share results through publications and news.

Distribution of Articles Worldwide

Through license agreements with universities, government agencies, and companies worldwide, the full text of your ASABE journal article or meeting paper is available to a majority of individuals interested in your research. Those with access to the complete our Technical Library include:

  • Nearly all land grant institutions along with many other U.S. institutions interested in our content.
  • Similar institutions in 37 other countries.
  • Over 1,000 institutions in China.
  • All USDA employees.
  • Over 650 institutions in more than 80 low-income countries through the TEEAL and INASP projects.
  • Major equipment companies and others interested in the content.
  • All ASABE members.

Discovery Services

Journals and other content are indexed for search engines by various discovery services that index our content. We also send our journal metadata to Crossref and register a DOI number for each article which makes the articles easy to find and cite. In addition to the indexers above, others obtain our metadata directly from CrossRef, further expanding the exposure your article receives.

Open Access and Public Access

Authors may purchase open access rights for their journal articles, including articles published in the past. See the copyright transfer form for details. Open access articles include the logo for Creative Commons BY-NC-ND 4.0 rights.

Public access for a limited time applies to special collections and invited reviews. These files may not be posted on other websites, except as permitted. See the Copyright FAQ for details.

Manuscript Submissions

Please note that for journal articles:

  • Referencing requirements for journals have changed including the author name order.
  • ISO standards adopted for journal name abbreviation.
  • Use of DOI is encouraged in references.
  • For references, if the author names are not in the correct order, the manuscript will be returned.

We use ScholarOne Manuscripts, the popular online manuscript submission and peer review system, to make the submission process easy and ensure timely review of your manuscript.

Upon completion, the article is published in print format and converted to XML format for publication online.
