About Us

The Uganda Journal of Agricultural Sciences (UJAS) is an open access peer reviewed journal published semi-annually by the National Agricultural Research Organisation offering both online as well as Hard copy options, in the areas of agricultural research and related fields, including reviews. The Journal welcomes articles that meet the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence. The manuscript should not have been submitted elsewhere or published by another journal, with the exception of abstracts.


Paper Selection and publication process
\r\n Submission of manuscripts is limited to electronic versions to the editorial office at: ujas@naro.go.ug with copies to the Editor-in-Chief at researchcoordination@naro.go.ug. Acknowledgement of receipt of the manuscript will be sent to the corresponding author within 72 hours after successful submission with the assigned manuscript code. The manuscript is thereafter subjected to a double-blind system of peer review; both reviewers and authors’ identities are anonymous. The manuscript is peer reviewed by three experts; one being an editorial staff and the other two selected from our voluntary scientific reviewer’s database. Peer review reports and copies for proof reading will be sent to the corresponding author before publication, unless otherwise indicated.
