Latest News @ the RAU Library

Tropicultura publishes original articles, research and synthesis notes, book and thesis summaries as well as reviews of films and videos relative to all aspects of rural development: plant and animal production, veterinary science, forestry science, soil science, rural engineering, environmental sciences, bio-industry, agro-food science, sociology and economy.

The review is published with the aid of the “Direction générale de la Coopération au Développement (DGDC), Ministère des Affaires du Commerce extérieur et de la Coopération au Développement”, and the “Région Bruxelles – Capitale” by Agri-Overseas in order to establish common-interest professional relationships between people working on overseas rural development.

The Electronic Journal of Business Research Methods provides perspectives on topics relevant to research in the field of business and management. Through its publication the journal contributes to the development of theory and practice. The journal accepts academically robust papers that contribute to the area of research in business and management.

New Agriculturist provides analysis of global issues as well as insights into local initiatives, and within each section an overview of recent topics gives readers a choice, at a glance, of subjects, as well as the most recently added content. Archive editions are fully searchable and within each section, readers can use keywords to filter content according to interest. Readers can rate an article, use the new facility to add their own comments and join the growing number of followers on Twitter.


The International Journal on Food System Dynamics publishes research on the analysis, organization, management, operation, and strategic development of the food system and its actors and dependants (enterprises, chains, networks, institutions, policy, and consumers). Challenges of social, economic and environmental sustainability in a world of increasing instability and decreasing production base challenge the system’s ability to serving consumers on a global scale with food that is readily available, affordable and of the quality, safety, and diversity they do expect. This requires new dynamics in the system, innovative developments, and research that provides the necessary support. The Journal is published only as an electronic journal.
