SCImago Journal & Country Rank


The Journal of Agricultural Machinery (JAM) was established in 2010 by Ferdowsi University of Mashhad in collaboration with the Iranian Society of Mechanical Engineers (ISME) through a bilateral Memorandum of Understanding. The journal aims to publish the latest research results of scientists in the field of designing, manufacturing, and evaluating various agricultural machinery and equipment, as well as the mechanization and management of machinery in agriculture, horticulture, livestock, and post-harvesting equipment. This will hopefully promote precision and modern agriculture through targeted research.

Articles in this journal can be submitted in three types of formats: Research, Short, and Review. Additionally, authors have the option to submit their articles in either Persian or English language.

This journal indexes in the Scopus database and in the The Web of Science Core Collection (Emerging Sources Citation Index).
