The Journal of
Semi-Arid Tropical Agricultural Research (J. SAT Agric. Res.)
is published electronically at least annually by the International
Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT).
It is intended as a worldwide communication link for all those
interested in the research and development of semi-arid tropical
agricultural research and to be a single, freely available web-based
electronic source from which researchers can gain access to
knowledge of crop and system specific information relevant to
the target agro-ecosystem. It is particularly aimed at assisting
those locations and partner institutions in sub-Saharan Africa
and Asia where hard-copy library, and even conventional mail-service,
support can be sub-optimal. In addition, it covers materials
such as bioinformatics and genomic marker diagrams requiring
high-quality photographic images that are problematic and expensive
to reproduce in hard copy
What to contribute?
should be current, scholarly and well justified on the grounds
of new information that warrants wide circulation
Results of recently
concluded experiments, newly released varieties, recent additions
to germplasm collections, mini-reviews, surveys, policy briefs
and other subjects which warrant more rapid or widespread
free dissemination than is presently possible in commercially-oriented
