Author Guidelines


Journal of Agriculture and Natural Resources (JANR) is a peer reviewed open access scientific journal published annually in December by Tribhuvan University, Institute of Agriculture and Animal Science, Prithu Technical College, Lamahi Municipality Ward -3, Wangaun, Deukhari Dang, Nepal. Manuscripts of  any research and review articles on agriculture, animal husbandry, fisheries, agricultural economics and extensions are considered for publication. The work must demonstrate novelty and relevance to the field of research. Papers published or offered for publication elsewhere will not be considered, but the publication of an abstract does not preclude the publication of the full paper in this journal. The major goal of JANR is to serve as a platform for the international scholars, academicians, researchers, and extensionists to share the innovative research findings in agriculture
