“Agronomy Research” (ISSN 1406-894X) is a peer-reviewed international journal intended for publication of broad-spectrum original articles, reviews and short communications on actual problems of modern biosystems engineering including crop and animal science, genetics, economics, farm- and production engineering, environmental aspects, agro-ecology, renewable energy and bioenergy etc. in the temperate regions of the world.

“Agronomy Research” was established in 2003 by the Faculty of Agronomy, Estonian Agricultural University.

Presently the journal is published biannually in May and November.

Published by Estonian University of Life Sciences, Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies, Vytautas Magnus University Agriculture Academy, Lithuanian Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry



“Baltic Forestry” (ISSN 1392-1355) is peer reviewed international scientific journal of forest sciences. The Journal is published two times a year. The journal welcomes the original articles as well as short reports, review papers on forestry and forest science throughout the Baltic Sea region and elsewhere in the area of boreal and temperate forests.

In 1995, Forest Research Institutes and Universities from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania joined their efforts to publish “Baltic Forestry”. The journal is published two times a year in June and November.

Published by Institute of Forestry, Lithuanian Research Centre for Agriculture and Forestry (LAMMC), Vytautas Magnus University Agriculture Academy, Institute of Forestry and Rural Engineering – Estonian University of Life Sciences, Latvian State Forest Reseach Institute “Silava”, Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies.


First published in 1995, the journal “Environmental Research, Engineering and Management” (ISSN 1392-1649, e-ISSN 2029-2139) is an international multidisciplinary journal designed to serve as a roadmap for understanding complex issues and debates of sustainable development. The journal publishes peer-reviewed scientific papers which cover research in the fields of environmental science, engineering (pollution prevention, resource efficiency), management, energy (renewables), agricultural and biological sciences, and social sciences.

The coordinator and main publisher of the scientific journal is the Kaunas University of Technology, main partners-publishers who signed a cooperation agreement are Lithuanian Energy Institute and Vytautas Magnus University.

The journal of “Agricultural Engineering” (ISSN 1392-1134 / eISSN 2345-0371) is a research journal published by Vytautas Magnus University Faculty of Engineering. It is an international medium for the publication of multidisciplinary and interface between agriculture engineering and other fields of science works.

The journal publishes original research papers dealing with mechanization of cropping and animal husbandry, green energy engineering, development, maintenance and reliability improvement of agricultural and other machinery, development of agriculture and other problems related to areas covered by agricultural engineering and interface between agriculture engineering and other fields of science.

The journal has a history since 1960. At that time the title of the journal was Works of the Scientific Research of the Institute of Lithuanian Agriculture Mechanization and Electrification. Since 1995 journal is under the title “Agricultural Engineering”.



The scientific journal “Agricultural Sciences” (ISSN 1392-0200, e-ISSN 2424-4120) of the Lithuanian Academy of Sciences and Vytautas Magnus University Agriculture Academy publishes original articles in the following fields and directions of science: agricultural sciences (agronomy, forest sciences, zootechnics, veterinary medicine), technological sciences (mechanical engineering, environmental engineering), social sciences (management, sociology, economics (agricultural economics, rural development, etc.)).

Scientific articles present original research data based on statistical analysis, search for causality of the results, modelling of processes and comparison of research data with the latest works by other authors. The journal publishes methodological, review, critical and information (about anniversaries, conferences, scientific collaboration, institutions of science and education) articles too.





“Baltic Surveying” is an international, cross-disciplinary, scientific, peer-reviewed and open access journal, issued as online (ISSN 2255–999X) edition.
