Journal of the Indian Society of Soil Science

Publication and Periodicity

First issue of the Journal of the Indian Society of Soil Science was published in 1953. Since then this journal has been published uninterrupted. Never so far, even a single issue has either been missed or two issues combined as one. The Golden Volume of the Journal (Volume 50) has been published. Volume 65, Number 1 is already with the members and June 2017 issue under print.
