Aims and Scope
The Spanish Journal of Soil Science (SJSS) is a peer-reviewed journal with open access for the publication of Soil Science research, which is published every four months. This publication welcomes works from all parts of the world and different geographic areas. It aims to publish original, innovative, and high-quality scientific papers related to field and laboratory research on all basic and applied aspects of Soil Science. The journal is also interested in interdisciplinary studies linked to soil research, short communications presenting new findings and applications, and invited state of art reviews.
The journal focuses on all the different areas of Soil Science represented by the Spanish Society of Soil Science: soil genesis, morphology and micromorphology, physics, chemistry, biology, mineralogy, biochemistry and its functions, classification, survey, and soil information systems; soil fertility and plant nutrition, hydrology and geomorphology; soil evaluation and land use planning; soil protection and conservation; soil degradation and remediation; soil quality; soil-plant relationships; soils and land use change; sustainability of ecosystems; soils and environmental quality; methods of soil analysis; pedometrics; new techniques and soil education. Other fields with growing interest include: digital soil mapping, soil nanotechnology, the modelling of biological and biochemical processes, mechanisms and processes responsible for the mobilization and immobilization of nutrients, organic matter stabilization, biogeochemical nutrient cycles, the influence of climatic change on soil processes and soil-plant relationships, carbon sequestration, and the role of soils in climatic change and ecological and environmental processes.
