Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Topical Collection aims to provide a comprehensive overview of New Trends in Plant Science in China by inviting contributions (full research articles and systematic reviews), from Chinese research institutes/laboratories, that consolidate our understanding of this area. Potential topics include but are not limited to plant biology, plant evolution, plant genomics/epigenomics, plant noncoding RNAs, plant phytochemistry, plant proteomics and metabolomics, plant phenomics, plant–microbe interactions, plant physiology,  plant ecology, plant pests and diseases, plant synthetic biology, Chinese traditional medicine, plant computational biology, and the development of new technologies in plant sciences.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 collection 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).
