About the Journal

Aims and Scope

The Journal, RENEWABLE - is an official publication of the Faculty of Renewable Natural Resources, University of Ibadan; that is published twice (June and December) a year in one volume. The Journal publishes carefully peer-reviewed original research articles on various aspects of renewable natural resources, forestry, environment, aquaculture, wildlife, ecotourism, and fisheries management. It covers diverse areas such as production, management, products, biotechnology, socio-economics, extension, health, physiology, nutrition, feeds and feedstuff, breeding and genetics, reproduction, farming systems, and man-flora-fauna interactions within the context of sustainable management of renewable natural resources. Review articles covering new developments in the aforementioned fields are also acceptable.

Editorial policy

Submission of a paper will be taken to imply that the material has not been previously published or is being considered for publication elsewhere. Submission of a multi-authored manuscript implies that the consents of all the participating authors have been obtained. RENEWABLE does not necessarily subscribe to the opinions or conclusions expressed by authors; however, the copyright of all published materials rests with the journal. The journal does not expressly guarantee nor warranty the standard of any product mentioned; neither does it imply approval of any product to the exclusion of others which may also be suitable. Trade and brand names are used only for information purposes.

Peer Review and Publication Process

The journal does not accept manuscripts with a similarity index above 25%. Two or more experts will review all original manuscripts submitted for publication, using the blind review option before a decision is taken. However, manuscripts that do not conform to the guidelines will be promptly returned. Authors will be notified within one to two months on the status of their papers; either accepted, revision requested or rejected. All accepted manuscripts are further subjected to editing and abridgment. Corresponding authors are responsible for action on reviewers’ comments and editing. Corresponding authors will receive galley proofs of edited manuscripts for review and comments before publication.


Article Processing Charges

Authors of manuscripts submitted, accepted, and published must pay both handling and page charges. Handling charge of five thousand naira (local) or ten dollars (foreign) per paper must accompany paper submission while the sum of #30,000 or Eighty dollars is paid on each manuscript, accepted and published. Extra cost will be incurred for pages exceeding 15 pages (@ #500 per page), and colour pages (@ #1000 per page) included in manuscripts.

Suffice to say here, however, that papers are not published on the basis of ability to pay.
