Author Guidelines

Plant Chemistry and Ecophysiology bimonthly publishes Original Research and Review on the outstanding discoveries in morphology, biochemistry, physiology and ecology of plants in various environments. Annual Highlight, Critical Comment, Editor’s Choice, Hypothesis, Improved Method, and Perspective articles are also welcome. In general, a submission is composed of a Cover letter, full text, Reviewers recommendation, and Author Statement. A cover letter should mention the research topics, main results, highlights. Two or three potential reviewers (including research topics, affiliation, and email) should be recommended before a submission. All contributions appear in the English language.

Manuscript Preparation

Manuscript length is expected to be 6 to 18 pages. The open access publishing group can exceptionally accept shorter or longer manuscripts, provided that the scientific content is of high value. No additional page charges are required if a manuscript is substantially longer than 17 pages.

The manuscripts submitted, in general, include the following items:

  • Title
  • List of authors, their affiliations and email addresses
  • Abstract
  • Key words
  • Introduction
  • Main body
  • Conclusions
  • Acknowledgments (optional)
  • References

Title - Make sure that the title is specific and concise. Titles should be presented in title case - all words except the first word should be in lower case letters.

List of authors, their affiliations and email addresses - Provide the full names and affiliations of all the authors. Affiliations should include department, university or organization, city, and country. One of the authors should be designated as the corresponding author, and their email address needs to be included.

Abstract - The abstract should briefly introduce the manuscript, not exceeding 400 words. No citations should be included in the abstract.

Keywords –3-6 keywords or phrases should be included and must be separated by semicolons to distinguish them

Introduction - The introduction section should provide a context for your manuscript. When preparing the introduction, please bear in mind that some readers will not be experts in your field of research.

Main body - the main body part should include the main proposed ideas, materials and methods, results and discussions.

Conclusions - A conclusion is where you summarize the paper's findings and generalize their importance, discuss ambiguous data, and recommend further research. An effective conclusion should provide closure for a paper, leaving the reader feeling satisfied that the concepts have been fully explained.

Acknowledgments - The acknowledgments section includes the names of people who in some way contributed to the work, but do not fit the criteria to be listed as the authors. This section of your manuscript can also include information about funding sources.

References- The author is responsible for verification of each reference listed. Articles cited in the text will be referred to by the surname of the author(s) with year of publication in parenthesis. If both are in parenthesis, no punctuation separates the name(s) of the author and the year of publication. If there are more than two authors only the senior author’s name is given. Reference list is placed at the end of text. References should be listed in alphabetical order according to the name of the first author and numbered. Chemical Abstracts Service Source Index and Serial Sources for the BIOSIS Preview Database can be used as the guide to the abbreviation of journal titles. Private communications, reports not yet accepted for publication, and unavailable documents are not reference and should be included in the text in parentheses. Citation of a reference as 'in press' implies that the item has been accepted for publication. Use the following examples for arranging the references:

  3. For periodicals

  7. Web references
  8. As a minimum, the full URL should be given and the date when the reference was last accessed. Any further information, if known (DOI, author names, dates, reference to a source publication, etc.), should also be given. Example: Soni V. 2008. In–situ conservation of Commiphorawightii a red–listed medicinal plant species of Rajasthan state, India. Available at: soni.pdf [accessed 28.05.12].
