History of the journal

The journal Agrociencia (ISSN 1510-0839; e-ISSN: 2301-1548) was first published in 1997 at the rate of one volume per year, until 2002, when the journal began to publish two annual issues, with the sporadic publication of special issues belonging to events (congresses, symposia, among others). Articles were published in Spanish and, occasionally, in English and Portuguese.

Since 2007 it has been published jointly by the Agronomy College (FAgro) of the Universidad de la República (Udelar) and the National Institute of Agricultural Research (INIA). This has allowed the consecration of a publication with the institutional support of two entities with relevant thematic specificity.

As of 2018, the publication is in electronic format and since the beginning of 2020 it has been published entirely in English and as a continuous publication.

In 2021, it began a consolidation process of the title in order to differentiate itself from other journals with similar titles. Thus, the new title Agrociencia Uruguay (ISSN 2730-5066) emerges, maintaining its history and commitment to knowledge communication in the area.

Currently, the journal is identified with the diamond open access (free consultation and APC), it publishes regular issues in English and in continuous publication mode.
