Focus and Scope

The Journal of Applied Botany and Food Quality (JABFQ) is an international Open Access journal dedicated to applied research in botany and plant food quality. The aim of the journal is to provide a platform for scientists to disseminate recent results of applied plant research in the following sections:

• Plant physiology
• Phytochemistry
• Plant biotechnology
• Plant breeding and cultivation
• Phytomedicine
• Plant microbial interaction
• Plant ecology

Within these fields, manuscripts are expected to have a clear focus on botanical and plant quality aspects and to contain new and innovative information based on state-of-the-art methodologies. JABFQ publishes original articles and reviews. Novelty and significance of original articles should be adequately discussed by the authors. As a special feature the authors are welcome to publish large data sets with their own DOI number along with their JABFQ paper.
