Biosystems Engineering

Biosystems Engineering is a monthly peer reviewed scientific journal published on our behalf by Elsevier. It is wholly owned by IAgrE and is the Official Scientific Journal of EurAgEng.

With 12 issues per annum (plus occasional special issues), Biosystems Engineering publishes research in engineering and the physical sciences that represent advances in understanding or modelling of the performance of biological systems for sustainable developments in land use and the environment, agriculture and amenity, bioproduction processes and the food chain. The subject matter of the journal reflects the wide range and interdisciplinary nature of research in engineering for biological systems.

Papers may report the results of experiments, theoretical analyses, design of, or innovations relating to, machines and mechanisation systems, processes or processing methods, equipment and buildings, experimental equipment, laboratory and analytical techniques and instrumentation.
