In the Editorial of the first issue1, Editors pointed out that even though there are many journals available for plant science researchers, an open access journal will definitely serve as a medium for rapid publication of the research outputs and remove subscription barriers.
PST aims to address this need and serves as the main international forum for publishing research outcomes of various fields of plant science. The journal intends to primarily publish research papers, reviews, book reviews, conference reports, letters to the editors, conference announcements, etc.
Through the exemption of author charges for low income countries, we hope to help and support young researchers and PhD students who do not have the means to publish their original and very interesting results. To get a quick view of our publication policy including peer review process, author charges, types of manuscripts that can be submitted to PST, and many other details you may read the Editorial of the first issue1 at http://horizonepublishing.com/
