The magazine was first published in 1994. The Triptolemus owes its name to the mythical hero, who was sent by Demeter, goddess of agriculture and harvest, to spread the seed of grain to the world of mortals.
The Triptolemus is not purely a scientific journal, as it does not publish original scholarly articles, research of members of the academic community or the agriculture scientific community. It includes articles about a wider range of issues in agriculture or current issues, as well as information on campus life and overall activities in AUA in teaching, science, culture, sports, and society. The Triptolemus magazine is published biannually, planning in the future to have three issues published a year.
