ASD publishes original articles, meta-analyses and review articles. Original articles should demonstrate a clear scientific breakthrough versus current knowledge. Contributions may be on either methodological approaches or approaches addressing major issues in the scope of the journal. Review articles report a critical evaluation of emerging topics. It covers topics among which: Agriculture and climate change; Agroecology for ecological intensification and ecosystem services; Preservation of natural resources; Sustainable food systems; Soil management and land use; Sustainable food systems ; Innovative farming systems and techniques; Covers topics from farming systems to agroclimatology, food safety to social issues and many more .

The journal has also a good number of open access articles , see some here:
