The First Issue of the Journal (2021)
The proceedings of scientific papers Agrobiodiversity for Improving Nutrition, Health and Life Quality has been published as yearbook within the international network AgroBioNet up to 2020. The year 2021 brings a fundamental change in the form of a transformation into a scientific journal with a semi-annual periodicity (twice a year). Agrobiodiversity for Improving Nutrition, Health and Life Quality it will continue to be the official periodical of the international network AgroBioNet published in cooperation of the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra, Slovakia and M.M.

Aimed of this transformation is to ensure faster, dynamically, transfer of scientific knowledges about wild, traditional, forgotten, underutilized and less-known plant species towards the scientific and professional community, consumers and others interested in the issue. The primary goal will be the presentation of scientific papers of research teams and also Ph.D. students. In terms of topics, the Journal will be focused on presentation of current knowledges about economic value of plant species and their practical use to support food safety, food security and resources, improving nutrition, application in alternative forms of therapy, usage of plant species for the remediation of water, soil and the environment, the expansion of the cultivation of species for the bee pastures and pollinators, the use of less-known plant species in cosmetics and landscaping. Accepted types of papers are original scientific papers, short communications and review articles.
Every life has its beginning and its way. The journal Agrobiodiversity for Improving Nutrition, Health and Life Quality has its own ones. Roots go back to 2013, when the first proceedings of scientific papers was published under this title. In 2017, the format was changed to a serial with annual periodicity and in 2021 to a biannual scientific journal. However, the main topic has not changed: agrobiodiversity and its place in the life of the Man and the Earth.
