As announced in Granada, Legume Sciences is calling for contributions for a special issue titled “Advances in legume sciences: reflections of the International Legume Society conference 2023”. All ILS members can access to a 40% discount on this publication.
The aim of the World Soybean Research Conference is to promote soybean research and to encourage the global soybean community to interact and initiate discussions, aiming to give answers and raise new questions on the globally important crop, fundamental for food and feed supply. Soybean plays a key role in the development of environmentally friendly agriculture production.
We are proud to announce the very first series of ILS public webinars on topics related to legume cultivation, improvement and crop use. There will be one webinar per month of 1-hour duration (inclusive of discussion) from September 2022 to June 2023, mostly on the first Tuesday of each month in the afternoon.
The opening seminar will be offered by Dr. Christian Huyghe of INRAE on September 6 at 4 PM CET on the topic “Perspectives, opportunities, challenges and burning research issues for legume crops in Europe“.
Legume Science would like to invite manuscripts (research or review papers) from PhD level graduate students or postdoctoral fellows (graduated in the last 3 years), who are working in the area of pre- orpost-harvest science and technology of legumes (breeding, genetics, agronomy, physiology, processing, packaging, chemistry, nutrition, starch/protein isolation, industrial applications, biofuels and many more) for submission to the journal. Ten manuscripts will be selected for the competition, and those papers will be published in the open-access journal free of charge (with Publication Fee of USD 2,800 waived). All accepted papers will be published in a special issue for the competitively selected manuscripts.
A certificate of distinction will also be issued by Legume Science. It definitely boosts young scientists’ early career with a huge impact on the global readership, who can access your manuscript freely after acceptance. The manuscript would further increase authors’ citation record.
