Editors Network

Agribusiness OnLine Publishing - Editors Network

The main aim of the Agribusiness Association is to promote exchange of knowledge between the various sectors of the Agri-food chain and to facilitate networking (both virtual and actual) between professionals across the supply chain.

Community of Practice.
One of the most effective ways of achieving efficient and effective knowledge exchange is through the creation of Communities of Practice.

The main objectives of our Editors Network are to -

  • Increase the breadth of material contributed to the Agribusiness Review and Perspective Papers,

  • Increase the network of contributors,

  • Increase international content and,

  • Create a global network of Agri-food sector knowledge based on the Agribusiness Review and Perspectives as a Community of Practice.
