Aims & Scope

The Australian Journal of Grape and Wine Research is an international journal owned by the Australian Society of Viticulture and Oenology, and publishes results from original research.

Subject areas include vine and wine science as well as product technology relating to table grapes and dried vine fruits, grape juice, wine and distilled spirits. Vine science relates to any aspect of grapevine biology including physiology and pathology. Wine science covers molecular, microbiological, biochemical and production aspects of wine making. Grape product technology relates to crop production issues and transformation of grapes into a marketable product.

We consider papers that extend our knowledge of grapevine biology and improve our understanding of production issues. Articles include original reports, critical reviews and technical notes. All papers will be assessed for scientific merit and will always be examined by at least two suitably qualified referees.

Our goal is to facilitate prompt publication of high quality vine and wine science, and make this new knowledge available worldwide via print and electronic media.

Articles published in the Australian Journal of Grape and Wine Research are indexed by CAB (Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences Information), Chemical Abstracts, IFIS (International Food Information Service), Vitis-VEA and by the Institute for Scientific Information in CURRENT CONTENTS (Agriculture, Biology and Environmental Sciences).

Getting your research noticed

“Sharing research articles with industry collaborators or promoting the work on social media is difficult as many do not have a journal or library subscription. Wiley, the publisher of the Australian Journal of Grape and Wine Research(AJGWR), has developed a new ‘author sharing’ system to help authors promote and disseminate their work without compromising journal access.

In the interest of sharing your research more widely, we encourage you to use this system to promote your article.

  1. Access the Wiley author sharing website (
  2. Enter the unique doi for your published article and your email address.

As long as the doi and email address match Wiley’s records you will immediately receive a unique sharing link to a read-only version of their article on the Wiley Online Library. You are then welcome to share the link with an unlimited number of people and sharing is permitted for institutional repositories, non-commercial, and personal use i.e. email, social channels, author websites. The following link is an example of an AJGWR article”
