Soil Health is an international peer-reviewed, open access, online journal, aiming to publish articles in soil quality, soil water, soil chemistry, soil physics, soil fertility, soil microbiology, ecosystem services, rangeland issues, water management and reuse, water quality and scarcity, and use of brackish and produced waters for agriculture productivity and sustainability and their impacts on soil health. Soil Health provides researcher opportunities for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary publications at multiple scales for soil, plant, and water, including agronomists, biogeochemists, chemists, ecologists, engineers, environmentalists, extension experts, geologists, horticulturists, hydrologists, pedologists, practitioners, soil physicists, and water managers. Soil Health publishes original basic and applied research, reviews, notes, letters, and book reviews. All submitted papers undergo a thorough peer-review prior to being accepted for publication by the Editorial Board of Soil Health.
