Aims and Scope
The Legume Research- An International Journal (LR) is a peer-reviewed scientific publication of ARCC Journals that aims to advance knowledge and understanding of legumes, which are a group of plants that belong to the Legume family. Legumes are important food crops, and they are also used for animal feed, as well as in soil conservation and in the improvement of soil fertility.
The primary aim of the Legume Research Journal is to provide a platform for researchers, scientists, and scholars to publish their original research findings, review articles, and other contributions related to legumes. The journal welcomes submissions from a broad range of disciplines, including plant biology, genetics, agronomy, and food science, among others.
The scope of the Legume Research Journal includes, but is not limited to, the following topics:
• Legume genetics and breeding
• Legume physiology and biochemistry
• Legume ecology and agronomy
• Legume nutrition and food science
• Legume microbiology and soil biology
The mission of the Legume Research Journal is to promote research and scholarship in the field of legumes, with the ultimate goal of enhancing our understanding of these plants and their role in food production, soil conservation, and sustainable agriculture. The journal seeks to disseminate knowledge and information to a wide audience of researchers, students, policy makers, and practitioners, with the aim of fostering collaboration and innovation in the field of legume research.
The vision of the Legume Research Journal is to be a leading source of knowledge and information on legumes, and to promote research that enhances our understanding of these plants and their role in sustainable food production and agriculture. The journal aims to facilitate communication and collaboration among researchers and practitioners working in different fields related to legumes, and to foster innovation and new approaches to legume research. Ultimately, the vision of the Legume Research Journal is to contribute to the development of sustainable and resilient food systems that benefit both people and the planet.
The future prospects of the Legume Research Journal are bright, given the growing global interest in sustainable agriculture, food security, and plant-based diets. As research in the field of legumes continues to expand, the journal is poised to play a critical role in disseminating new knowledge, fostering collaboration, and advancing the field.
One of the key areas of focus for the journal in the future will be to publish research that explores the potential of legumes as a sustainable source of protein and other nutrients, particularly in the context of a growing global population and the need to reduce the environmental impact of food production. This could include studies on the development of new legume varieties that are more resilient to climate change and other stressors, as well as research on the nutritional quality of legumes and their potential health benefits.
Another important area of focus for the Legume Research Journal in the future will be to foster interdisciplinary research that brings together experts from different fields, such as plant biology, ecology, and social sciences, to explore the complex challenges and opportunities associated with legume production and use. This could include studies on the social and economic factors that influence the adoption of legume-based cropping systems, as well as research on the role of legumes in soil health and ecosystem services.
Legume Research- An International Journal is well-positioned to contribute to the global effort to build more sustainable and resilient food systems, and to advance our understanding of the important role that legumes can play in achieving these goals.

Legume Research- An International Journal believes in the principle of open access to scientific knowledge and aims to make all published content freely available to readers around the world. This includes original research articles, review papers, and other contributions related to legumes.
The journal operates on an open access model, which means that all content is available to readers free of charge without any subscription or paywall barriers. The journal also allows authors to retain copyright over their work and encourages them to share their research findings widely.
By promoting open access to scientific knowledge, the Legume Research Journal aims to facilitate the dissemination of research findings, increase the visibility and impact of scientific research, and promote collaboration and innovation in the field of legume research. We believe that open access is critical for advancing scientific knowledge and for promoting a more equitable and inclusive system of scientific communication.
In line with our commitment to open access, the Legume Research Journal is indexed in a variety of online databases and repositories, including Google Scholar and Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), which help to ensure that our content reaches a wide and diverse audience of researchers, scholars, practitioners, and policy makers.
