Korean Journal of Agricultural Science (KJOAS) is an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, published by the Institute of Agricultural Science in College of Agriculture & Life Sciences, Chungnam National University. It publishes original research, applied, and educational articles quarterly in all areas of agricultural science.
KJOAS was first launched in 1974 December with Volume 1 and issue 1. Since 1974, journal produced two issues every year. Initially, it was named as Research Reports of Agricultural Science and Technology. In 1989 June, the journal was renamed as Journal of Agricultural Science from volume 16.
