Dear readers, authors, reviewers and fellow editors,
Time flies and half of 2023 is almost done. Time for a small update on the Journal of Applied Botany and Food Quality!
Last year, we published 22 original research articles (read full issue at https://ojs.openagrar.de/index.php/JABFQ/issue/view/2453) from a total of 120 submitted manuscripts. Several submissions are still in revision.
The brand new impact factor (Clarivate, Web of Science) is 1.2, putting the journal into the 3rd Journal Impact Factor Quartile. The Scopus CiteScore improved to 3.1, ranking the journal in the 2nd Quartile, thus, better than 62 % of the other journals in the category plant science. A big thank you to our authors, whose quality content made this possible!
But now let’s talk about new developments this year. There will be no special section, but were are already preparing one for next year. Until then, have fun reading the regular content at https://ojs.openagrar.de/index.php/JABFQ/issue/view/2469 with articles such as
- Nutritional diversity in leaves of various amaranth (Amaranthus spp.) genotypes and its resilience to drought stress
- Tolerance of transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana overexpressing apple MdAGO4.1 gene to drought and salt stress
- Morphological characteristics and antioxidant properties of Allium ursinum L. wild growing in the northwestern part of the Republic of Srpska (Bosnia and Herzegovina)
- Viability of Moringa oleifera seeds stored at different temperatures and recent status of Moringa oleifera collections in seed banks worldwide
- Ultrasound-assisted extraction and (U)HPLC-DAD-ESI-MSn analysis of phenolic compounds from black chokeberries cultivated in Turkey
- Postharvest performance of 17 apple accessions grown in NE Spain after long-term cold storage
- Beneficial or hazardous? A comprehensive study of 24 elements from wild edible plants from Angola
