Aims and scope

Plant Methods is an open access, peer-reviewed journal for the plant research community that encompasses all aspects of technological innovation in the plant sciences.

The goal of this journal is to stimulate the development and adoption of new and improved techniques and research tools and, where appropriate, to promote consistency of methodologies for better integration of data from different laboratories.

Call for papers: Few-shot Learning

The guest editors Yang Li, Jiachen Yang, and Francesco Marinello are pleased to invite you to submit an article to the new thematic series Accelerating image-based plant phenotyping and pattern recognition: deep learning or few-shot learning?

COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

In Review: Preprint platform and more

Plant Methods has launched In Review, a new option that provides authors with on-demand information on the status of their manuscript, enables them to share their work with funders and their research community, and allows their colleagues to comment and collaborate - all whilst their manuscript is under review. Full details here.
