A timely boost to much of the research show­cased in the pre­vi­ous items  — about the UKPSF’s con­fer­ence earlier in 2012 — should come from BioMed Central’s newly launched Agriculture & Food Security, a peer-reviewed, open access journal that addresses the chal­lenge of global food secur­ity. In keep­ing with the multi-disciplinary approaches such issues need, Agriculture & Food Security will pub­lish ‘cutting-edge con­tri­bu­tions across the breadth of rel­ev­ant aca­demic dis­cip­lines, includ­ing agri­cul­tural, eco­lo­gical, envir­on­mental, nutri­tional, and socio-economic sci­ences, pub­lic health and policy’.
