Aims & Scope
The Journal of Biosystems Engineering (J Biosystems Eng, JBE), the official journal of the Korean Society for Agricultural Machinery (KSAM) founded in 1976, is an international, peer-reviewed journal. The journal aims to advance and disseminate scientific and technical knowledge concerning biosystems engineering. The journal publishes 6 issues per year in English and follows an open access policy. It continues from where the Journal of Korean Society for Agricultural Machinery (ISSN: 1010-4542) left off, with successive volume numbers. JBE is indexed in the Korea Citation Index (KCI).
The scope of the journal covers the following topics: i) off-road machinery system engineering including agricultural farm power and machinery, agricultural safety and health, agricultural and biosystems management, soil and terra-mechanics, and forest machinery, ii) agri-environmental system engineering and energy including structure and facilities for living systems, indoor environmental control, livestock machinery, horticultural machinery, plant factory, and biomass/renewable energy, iii) agricultural process and food engineering including postharvest technology, food quality and safety, and food processing and packaging, iv) biological engineering including biomechanics, biosensors, bioMEMS/NEMS, and tissue engineering, v) information technology and electronics including information and precision agriculture, instrumentation and controls, and robotics for biosystems, and vi) other topics relevant to biosystems engineering.
