Scope Agronomy for Sustainable Development (ASD) is a journal of the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA). It welcomes multidisciplinary articles that bridge agronomy, cropping and farming system research with ecological, genetic, environmental, economical and social sciences. Systemic approaches at the livestock, field, farm, landscape, food systems and global scales, and participatory research are encouraged. ASD does not publish: · monodisciplinary articles in ecology, plant physiology, soil and environmental sciences, genetics, microbiology and entomology that do not explicitly consider crop production. · monodisciplinary articles in economics and social sciences. · studies that involve experiments mainly conducted in pots or disconnected from production conditions. ASD publishes original articles, meta-analyses and review articles. Original articles should demonstrate a clear scientific breakthrough versus current knowledge. Contributions may be on either methodological approaches or approaches addressing major issues in the scope of the journal. Review articles report a critical evaluation of emerging topics.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
