About this Journal                           Impact Factor 0.9857

International Journal of Horticulture and Floriculture ISSN 2167-0455 publishes original, peer-reviewed papers, short communications and review articles covering basic sciences as well as practical aspects of horticultural sciences and related disciplines

IJHF welcomes articles dealing with the art, science, technology, and business of growing plants, including cultivation of medicinal plants, fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs, sprouts, mushrooms, algae, flowers, seaweeds and non-food crops such as grass and ornamental trees and plants. It also includes plant conservation, landscape restoration, landscape and garden design, construction, and maintenance, and arboriculture.

IJHF also considers submission on significant plant science discoveries and new or modified methodologies and technologies with a broad international and cross-disciplinary interest in the scope of global horticulture. The journal's focus is on applied and fundamental aspects of the entire food value chain, ranging from breeding, production, processing, trading to retailing of horticultural crops and commodities in temperate, subtropical and tropical regions.

In particular IJHFemphasizes integrated crop management strategies during the preharvest and postharvest stages, aiming at sustainably increasing the quantity and quality of horticultural products. The journal considers manuscripts in the following areas:
