- New Phytologist is an international electronic journal published 16 times a year, and is owned by a non-profit-making charitable trust dedicated to the promotion of plant science.
- Our regular submissions address fundamental questions across the spectrum of plant science. Short Letters and other submissions to the Forum section, as well as Research reviews, Rapid reports and both Modelling/Theory and Methods papers, are also encouraged.
- We are committed to rapid processing - from online submission using http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/newphytologist/, enabling the quickest possible peer review, through to the use of e-proofs and then publication 'as-ready' via Early View.
- There are no page or colour charges and a PDF version will be provided for each article.
- Authors may opt to make their article 'open access' by subscribing to the Wiley-Blackwell OnlineOpen service.
- If you have any queries do not hesitate to get in touch with Central Office or, if it is more convenient, our US Office.
New Phytologist offers rapid publication of high quality, original research in plant science. Falling within four sections - Physiology & Development, Environment, Interaction and Evolution - articles cover topics that range from intracellular processes through to global environmental change. Cross-disciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged but for guidance the journal is organized as follows and recognizes that techniques from molecular and cell biology, and functional genomics through to modelling and system-based approaches will be applied across the whole spectrum of plant science:
- Physiology & Development: intra/inter-cellular signalling, long-distance signalling, physiology, development, eco-devo - phenotypic plasticity, transport, biochemistry.
- Environment: global change and Earth system functioning, environmental stress, ecophysiology, plant–soil interactions, heavy metals.
- Interaction: multitrophic systems, mycorrhizas and pathogens, fungal genomics, nitrogen-fixing symbioses.
- Evolution: molecular evolution, population genetics, mating systems, phylogenetics, speciation, plant-enemy coevolution.
All papers must focus on timely research that provides new insights into the broad principles of plant science. The topic should be original, addressing clear hypotheses or questions and of general interest to our readers. In addition to original research articles, short Letters and other submissions to the Forum section, as well as Research reviews, Rapid reports and both Modelling/Theory and Methods papers, are also encouraged.

New Phytologist is owned by a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of plant science, facilitating projects from symposia to open access for our Tansley reviews.
