AESA CrossMark Policy

The Archives of Agriculture and Environmental Science (AAES) journal serves as the official publication of the Agriculture and Environmental Science Academy (AESA). It is dedicated to disseminating original and innovative research that has not been previously published elsewhere nor is under consideration for publication by another publisher. Upholding the highest ethical standards, the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), an independent body affiliated with AESA, assists editors in addressing issues such as plagiarism, corrections, retractions, withdrawals, and any breaches of the journal’s editorial and publication policies.

AAES strictly adheres to a Zero Tolerance Policy on Plagiarism, requiring all submitted manuscripts’ core content (including abstracts, summaries, hypotheses, observations, results, conclusions, and recommendations) to be entirely free of plagiarism. Non-core sections, such as introductions and discussions, must exhibit plagiarism levels below 10%. Authors are urged to adhere strictly to this policy and submit only original, plagiarism-free work to AAES. For comprehensive details, authors are encouraged to review the Publication Ethics and Best Practice Guidelines available at

Manuscripts undergo peer review via a single-blind system by members of the editorial board or qualified reviewers. Further instructions for reviewers can be found at
