Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

All plants, including crops, always experience a variety of environmental conditions, and they undergo physiological changes. The titular “Plant Stress Response” is a scientific field that has been explored by many researchers; nevertheless, there are still challenges to be elucidated to expand our current knowledge. The main purpose of this Special Issue is to globally understand metabolic changes based on plant responses against stress conditions, and also to find out what is the common and main mechanism of plants under abiotic/biotic stresses. In addition, stress-specific responses are to be further explained by a combination of high throughput omics technologies. The study of plant stress response will provide us important messages on how plants grow and develop from cell to whole plants, cope with their environments, and finally how they should be managed to survive.

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. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
