Scope Future of Food: Journal on Food, Agriculture & Society (FOFJ) was founded in 2012 in order to provide a platform for scientific debate on agriculture and food-related themes with the goal of a sustainable future for people and planet. The journal is aimed at contributing to debates on sustainable food production and consumption, and is most interested in tackling the most important challenges to the global agri-food system, such as hunger and malnutrition, depletion of natural resources, climate change, threats to biodiversity, and inequity in the agrarian sphere. The journal understands itself as a multi-disciplinary effort and is especially designed to foster interaction between different disciplines and approaches. Hence it invites inputs from social and natural sciences, arts and humanities, academics and scholar-activists, civil society and agroecology practitioners. The journal is attempting to reach its goal by providing open access to readers and allowing contributions without submission fees or publication fees. Contributors are kindly asked to keep in mind that the journal is a non-profit endeavour and that staff time is limited. The journal cannot provide guarantees or financial support for any submission and cannot accept legal responsibility for any stage of the submission process. The Editorial Board is made up by a range of international experts who devote time and energy to peer review and its members deserve gratitude and recognition for their excellent work. All communication between authors, editors, reviewers and editorial staff is conducted in an atmosphere of mutual respect. The journal will not tolerate racism, religious, ethnic and national chauvinism, misogynous and hate language and reserves the right to bar anyone who disrespects these principles from using the platform.

SJR

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.
