Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems publishes peer-reviewed papers and rapid communications based on original research as well as reviews, perspectives and commentaries of interest to an international readership. Coverage extends to all aspects of carbon and nutrient cycling as well as management in soil-crop-animal systems, their effects in ecological, agronomic, environmental and economic terms. The range of topics includes agronomic, agroforestry, livestock, pasture, organic agriculture, bioenergy, and fallow systems or system components such as plants and the fertility, chemistry, physics or faunal and micro-biology of soils, as well as system inputs from and losses to the anthroposphere, atmosphere and hydrosphere. The Editor-in-Chief of Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems is Johannes Lehmann, Cornell University, Ithaca, USA.

Cycling research made freely available
Twitter post inspires Elsevier’s Transportation team to make key bicycling articles free this year
By Rhianna Jones Posted on 3 July 2013
As part of its Transportation portfolio, Elsevier publishes research on all transportation modes, from aviation to rail, shipping and cycling. Much of the cycling research is multidisciplinary, drawing on fields such as geography, urban planning, accident prevention and public health.

In recent years, cycling has become increasingly prominent globally. Rocketing oil prices and growing concern about environmental and health issues such as air pollution and obesity have led many drivers to seek alternative means of transportation. Consequently, politicians around the world are being attracted to policies that promote cycling, and academic research has grown to reflect these developments.
In Elsevier's Transportation social media community, cycling had been a hot topic for months. In fact, a retweet of an Elsevier cycling article led to a suggestion from a passionate cycling ecologist in Scotland (@kim_harding) that it would be beneficial for that particular article to be freely available. Chris Pringle, the Executive Publisher of Transportation, and I agreed. We chose a selection of our favorite cycling research — covering topics such as the bicycle helmet debate (a contentious point), bike share schemes and the environment – and made the articles freely available for 12 months. We promote this access on Elsevier.com, ScienceDirect and social media, where the idea was born.
Through making these articles freely available, we are happy to be able to share high-quality research that Elsevier has published over the years in this important field. We hope that academics, policymakers and the cycling community will be informed and inspired by these articles, and that future authors will choose Elsevier as the home for their own cycling research.[divider]
