About the Journal

Soil Research (formerly known as Australian Journal of Soil Research) is an international journal that aims to rapidly publish high-quality, novel research about fundamental and applied aspects of soil science. As well as publishing in traditional aspects of soil biology, soil physics and soil chemistry across terrestrial ecosystems, the journal welcomes manuscripts dealing with wider interactions of soils with the environment. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Carbon, nutrient and other elemental cycling
  • Land degradation, reclamation, remediation and rehabilitation
  • Newly emerging fields and methods in soil science
  • Pedology
  • Plant–soil–microbe Interactions and feedbacks
  • Soil biodiversity
  • Soil fertility and plant nutrition
  • Soil genesis
  • Soil geography
  • Soil mapping and evaluation
  • Soil mechanics
  • Soil mineralogy
  • Soil tillage and management
  • Soil-borne pathogens
  • Soil–plant interactions and feedbacks
  • Soils and food security
  • Soils and global change
  • Soil–water relations
  • Terrestrial biogeochemistry
  • Terrestrial ecosystem ecology
  • Threats to and protection of soils
