The International Journal of Food Science and Agriculture (IJFSA, ISSN: 2575-7946) is an international journal dedicated to advancing global agricultural and food science. The journal aims to provide a platform for scientists, students, scholars, and engineers worldwide to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in different fields of agricultural science. All submissions must be written in English and undergo rigorous and impartial peer review. The journal publishes original research papers in areas including but not limited to agricultural biodiversity, agronomy, agricultural ecology, agricultural economics, agricultural electrification and automation, agricultural entomology, agricultural genomics, agricultural production, agricultural resources, agricultural chemistry, agricultural soil science, agronomy, animal breeding and nutrition, aquaculture, and biotechnology.

IJFSA has been included in many databases such as CAS Databases (Chemical Abstracts Services), Google Scholar, Access to Global Online Research in Agriculture (AGORA), Academic Keys, COSMOS Impact Factor, Germany, Directory of Research Journal Indexing (DRJI), Dimensions, Scope Database, i-Scholar, infoBASE INDEX, JournalSeek, Open J-Gate, Root Indexing, SciLit, Scientific Indexing Services (SIS), The Library of Congress, USA, Worldcat, USA, CABI Database, CABI Full Text, QOAM (Quality Open Access Marker), ResearchBib, JournalTOCs, Eurasian Scientific Journal Index, Semantic Scholar, EuroPub, Exaly, ScienceGate, PUBSCIE, Advanced Science Index, OAJI (Open Academic Journals Index), CSCIED, CNKI Scholar, WANFANG DATA, and nearly 40 other databases.

IJFSA has been cited by many high-impact SCI journals. Some of the journals that have cited IJFSA include Chemical Reviews (IF=62.1), Comprehensive Reviews in Food Science and Food Safety (IF=14.8), Reviews in Environmental Science and Bio/Technology (IF=14.4), Industrial Crops and Products (IF=12.6), Journal of Cleaner Production (IF=11.1), Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition (IF=10.2), Technology in Society (IF=9.2), Chemosphere (IF=8.8), Food Chemistry (IF=8.8), Journal of Environmental Management (IF=8.7), Environmental Research (IF=8.3), Meat Science (IF=7.1), Food Security (IF=6.7), Food Engineering Reviews (IF=6.6), Physiologia Plantarum (IF=6.4), Applied Thermal Engineering (IF=6.4), Urban Forestry & Urban Greening (IF=6.4), Cells (IF=6.0), Industrial Crops and Products (IF=5.9), Environmental Science and Pollution Research (IF=5.8), Food and Bioprocess Technology (IF=5.6), International Journal of Molecular Sciences (IF=5.6), Frontiers in Plant Science (IF=5.6), and more than 80 other SCI journals (those with an impact factor lower than 5.5 are not listed).

The papers published in IJFSA have been cited quite frequently, with the paper "Abiotic Stresses and Their Effects on Plant Growth, Yield and Nutritional Quality of Agricultural Produce" having been cited 46 times.
