Journal of Plant Physiology
Biochemistry, Physiology, Molecular Biology and Functional Biotechnology of Plants
Founded in 1909, with roots tracing back to 1818, the Journal of Plant Physiology(JPP) published landmark papers in plant physiology and is one of the world's oldest international journals in the botanical sciences.
Today's modern concept of JPP welcomes submissions in biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology and functional biotechnology of plants.
While a "new" or "agriculturally important" species alone is not an acceptable rationale for this journal, submission of papers exploring the diversity of species beyond current models, such as Arabidopsis, and bridging basic research with applied aspects is encouraged. Experiments should be carried out under controlled environmental conditions.
Descriptive manuscripts, confirming known facts in just another species without contributing to a better understanding of the biological mechanisms involved, will normally be returned without review.
