Strengths and Weaknesses of the journal
AgroScience has attained international status. It publishes papers from all over the world. For more than one decade, the journal has provided opportunities to researchers in Agriculture and allied fields to publish their findings in written word. The journal has reviewers that are of international standard. Both the hard and electronic copies are produced for circulation.
AgroScience has poor financial base. Its production and circulation are self-sponsored.
Opportunities and Threats of the journals
AgroScience has the potentials of becoming a world-class journal with a high impact factor.
AgroScience is presently competing with many other agro-based journals that are well financed.
Strategies to enhance the capacity of the journals
The Editorial Board of AgroScience is presently expanding the membership of the board to include other scholars in Europe, America and other continents. Efforts are also being made to find sponsors who would assist in funding the production of the journal on regular basis. It is the desire of the board to go completely on-line in the review processes.
Our Pressing Need
We would want the university to link us up with Tetfund
