Soil Health is an international peer-reviewed, open access, online journal.
Aims and Scope
Soil Health aims that scientists embrace soil health as an overarching principle that contributes to sustainability goals, rather than only one or several properties to measure. Soil Health publishes peer-reviewed 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. The Journal publishes original basic and applied research, reviews, notes, letters, and book reviews. Invited papers can be solicited from known experts.
The Journal provides opportunities for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary publications at multiple scales for soil, plant, and water researchers and students, including, agronomists, biogeochemists, chemists, ecologists, engineers, environmentalists, extension experts, geologists, horticulturists, hydrologists, pedologists, practitioners, soil physicists, and water managers. All papers submitted to the Journal undergo a thorough peer-review prior to being accepted for publication by the Editorial Board of the Journal.
