A New Publication: The UV4Plants Bulletin
[notice added 2017-03-05]
Currently the UV4Plants Bulletin is published using OJS and has its own website, where published articles and issues are available for download under open access as well as manuscript submissions are accepted. The scope, instructions to authors, and the list of members of the editorial board are also published through this new site.
The preparatory work for our Association’s Bulletin has been completed. Aims and Scope, and the names of the members of the founding editorial board have been published as a page in this web site. Instructions for manuscript submission are available on a separate web page.
We aim at making our association’s UV4Plants Bulletin a publication channel for articles of long-lasting interest. The Bulletin will accept submissions both from members and non-members, and will also publish invited articles. The electronic version will be open-access to all, while the printed version will be available at a charge, but at half price for members. At least initially, no paid subscriptions will be available. Instead, members and subscribers will be informed when each new issue becomes available. TheUV4Plants Bulletin will have an ISSN code and will be electronically archived. DOI codes will be assigned to individual articles.
The UV4Plants Bulletin does not aim to compete with established scientific journals but rather to complement them by focusing on the publication of articles that are not reports of original research. The Bulletin will include varied content: Letters to the Editor, Opinions, Research News, Industry News, Profiles and Accounts, Case notes, Tutorials, Reviews, Calls for Collaboration. Subject-wise, articles can be related to any aspects of research on plants and ultraviolet radiation, including molecular biology, physiology, ecology, genetics and evolution, and practical applications of manipulations of ultraviolet radiation in the growing environment or breeding for altered ultraviolet sensitivity in agriculture, forestry and horticulture, as well as related research methods and tools. In addition case notes, tutorials, examples and reviews related to teaching and the popularization of the subjects listed above are welcomed. When in doubt about a possible submission, please, consult one of the Editors by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org before writing the manuscript and/or any later time during its preparation.
We aim at publishing two issues of the UV4Plants Bulletin per year, with the first issue appearing during September 2015.
Looking forward to receive your manuscript submissions!
