Physiological and Molecular Plant Pathology - ISSN 0885-5765
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.962 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.645 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 2.747 (2020) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

5 Year Impact Factor: 2.388 (2020) Five-Year Impact Factor:
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2016 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

Physiological and Molecular Plant Pathology provides an International forum for original research papers, reviews, and commentaries on all aspects of the molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology, histology and cytology, genetics and evolution of plant-microbe interactions.

Papers on all kinds of infective pathogen, including viruses, prokaryotes, fungi, and nematodes, as well as mutualistic organisms such as Rhizobium and mycorrhyzal fungi, are acceptable as long as they have a bearing on the interaction between pathogen and plant.

Research Areas Include:

• Recognition in plant immunity
• Cell biology of plant-microbe interactions
• Plant molecular defense responses, including transcriptome, proteome, miRNA profiling, metabolome
• Mechanisms of specific resistance, induced resistance and non-host -resistance
• Plant hormones and regulators in plant-microbe interactions
• Molecular biology of phytoalexins and other secondary metabolites of the host and their roles in resistance
• Pathogen effectors involved in pathogenicity and interaction with the host
• Pathogen infection mechanisms and host defense suppression
• Novel approaches for disease control
• Induction of plant immunity and biotechnology of resistance
• Pathogen molecular diagnostic.
