Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 2.178 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.767 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 4.308 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Aims and Scope of Field Crops Research


Field Crops Research is an international journal publishing scientific articles on:

√ Original experimental and modelling research.
√ Re-analysis of published data (including meta-analysis) that demonstrates new scientific insight, original technologies or novel methods at crop, field, farm and landscape levels.
√ Studies at lower level of organisation (plant to molecular) must demonstrate scaling up to crop level or higher.


The focus of Field Crops Research is crop ecology, crop physiology and agronomy of major field crops for food, fibre, feed and biofuel.

The inclusion of yield data is encouraged to demonstrate how the field experiments contribute to the understanding of the bio-physical processes related to crop development, growth and the formation and realisation of yield.

Articles on phenotyping, genetics, breeding, quality (grain, fibre, fodder), remote and non-contact sensing, crop protection (diseases, pests, weeds), soils and climate may be considered, provided they are integrated with crop ecology, crop physiology, and/or agronomy.


  • Manuscripts must be written in grammatically sound English.
  • Formulate clear objectives that must flow from complete, brief, unbiased and updated review of literature.
  • Experimental design must match objectives.
  • Field experiments must be repeated in at least two seasons or locations.
  • Key agronomic practices and environmental conditions (soil, weather) must be detailed, and weather information should be shown in relation to crop phenology.
  • Data must be analysed with appropriate statistics, and results have to be concise and address objectives.
  • A separate discussion must not repeat results but place findings in agronomic context with conclusions fully justified by data.


  1. Research that is corroborative, descriptive, or only of local significance.
  2. Studies carried-out exclusively under controlled-environment conditions.
  3. Studies on natural grasslands, horticultural (i.e., vegetable and fruit species), woody perennial, medicinal and non-cultivated species.
  4. Articles at lower levels of organisation that do not scale to crop level or higher.
  5. Articles on crop storage, transportation and usage, and social studies on crops and cropping systems.

Reviews and opinion papers

Reviews and opinion papers are normally by invitation. However, authors may submit expressions of interest to the editors. These must include a 1-page statement of the timeliness, relevance, original aspects of the contribution, and an outline of the contents of the proposed contribution.
