International Journal of Plant Breeding and Genetics
About this Journal
Aims and scope
International Journal of Plant Breeding and Genetics is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research, critical reviews and short communications on all branches of plant breeding and genetics. The journal aims to promote scientific and technical co-operation in the field of plant breeding in order to foster further development. The journal welcome articles on all areas of plant sciences related to plant breeding and genetics.
The journal particularly welcomes multi-disciplinary approaches that incorporate both a technical and a socio-economic focus. Technical aspects can cover developments in technologies of potential or demonstrated relevance to the analysis of variation and diversity at the phenotypic and genotypic levels; the development of rational germplasm collection, evaluation and conservation strategies; and the impact of crop genetic modification and biotechnology on plant genetic resources. Non-technical aspects can include ethical, legal, commercial and social issues of relevance, in particular relating to farmers’ rights, intellectual property and ethnobotany.
The journal will bring together scientists and researchers in all fields related to plant breeding. Manuscripts with the visions for meeting the great challenges of plant breeding in coming decades, are most welcome. Also, papers on the development of new tools and the rapid technological development of plant genomics, bioinformatics and phenomics, to name just a few, will add a new dimension to the journal.
- All articles published by this journal are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers. Kindly visit these links for more information about our Copyright and Open Access Policy.
