Overview
"Soil Studies (SoilSt)” is the successor to the “Soil Water Journal (Toprak Su Dergisi)” which has been published since 2012. Based on the experience and strengths of its predecessor, SoilSt has been developed to create a truly international forum for the communication of research in soil science and agriculture. SoilSt is a refereed academic journal has been published free of charge and open accessed by Soil, Fertilizer and Water Resources Central Research Institute. The journal will be published 2 issues (July & December) starting from 2022. It covers research and requirements of all works within the areas of agriculture.

Aims and Scope
Soil Studies is an international peer reviewed journal that aims to rapidly publish high-quality, novel research of studies on fertility, management, conservation, and remediation, physics, chemistry, biology, genesis, and geography of soils. In addition, the main purpose of Soil Studies is to reveal the influences of environmental and climate changes on agroecosystems and agricultural production. In this context, Soil Studies publishes international studies address these impact factors through interdisciplinary studies. In the journal, articles on hypothesis-based experimental observation of the interactions of all components of agricultural ecosystems, field trials, greenhouse or laboratory-based studies, economic impact assessments, agricultural technologies, and natural resources management will be accepted within the peer-reviewed process. Topics include, but are not limited to:

Agriculture

Soil management

Soil health, quality and security
Soil hydrology
Soil pollution
Soil fertility and productivity and environmental soil chemistry
Environmental soil physics and biophysics
Soil microbiology, biodiversity and biotechnology
Soil mineralogy and micromorphology
Soil ecology and agroecosystems
Soil degradation and conservation/restoration
Organic farming, conservation agriculture and sustainability
Best management practices in agricultural production
Soil-water-plant relations and agricultural water management
Cop water relations, crop yields and water productivity
Soil and society
Climate/environmental changes and sustainable agriculture
Digital soil mapping
Soil economy and agricultural production-environment policies
Conservation agriculture systems and its impacts on soil
Soil regeneration
Land management
Environmental stress on soil and plants
Physiology and metabolism of plants
Diversity and sustainability of agricultural systems
Organic and inorganic fertilization in relation to their impact on yields
Quality of plants and ecological systems
