Special Issue "Auxins and Cytokinins in Plant Development"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019)
Dr. Miroslav Kamínek
Research of auxins and cytokinins, i.e., plant growth substances that play a central role in control of plant cell division and differentiation, is increasingly progressing, more than one hundred years since detection of their physiological manifestations in plants. It involves numerous other processes that attract attention from research, including plant responses to biotic and abiotic stimuli and exploitation of auxins and cytokinins in plant biotechnology. The Special Issue of IJMS, “Auxins and Cytokinins in Plant Development” is aimed to provide an up-to-date overview of the mechanisms of biosynthesis, metabolism, transport, signaling and developmental roles of both auxins and cytokinins. Within these mechanisms, we would like to emphasize those that integrate action of both auxins and cytokinins and, more importantly, modes of crosstalk with other plant hormones and environmental stimuli. This Special Issue will be released on the occasion of the symposium “Auxins and Cytokinins in Plant Development” in Prague, 1–5 July, 2018. Within the issue, we invite contributions from symposium participants; however, it is open to all other contributors.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
