Molecular Plant Pathology

(ISSN 1364-3703)


Molecular Plant Pathology is published jointly with the British Society for Plant Pathology.

We are pleased to announce that Molecular Plant Pathology is now an Open Access journal. As a result, all submissions received after 25th September 2018 will be subject to an Article Processing Charge. BSPP members will receive a 20% discount on the standard APC. For more information on the fees, please click here.

Aims and Scope

Online submission of manuscripts is available at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/mpp. Instructions on how to prepare your manuscript for online submission are given on site and below. Please ensure that you follow the Journal’s instructions carefully before you submit your manuscript. See the for author section of this website for more details.

Molecular Plant Pathology is published 9 times a year and welcomes submissions from all areas of molecular plant pathology that advance our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of disease or disease management. This includes research on fungi, oomycetes, viruses, nematodes, bacteria, insects, parasitic plants and other organisms. Molecular Plant Pathology is especially interested in manuscripts emphasizing molecular analyses of pathogens, pathogen evolution, determinants affecting host response to plant pathogens or the interaction of both, spanning the host-microbe interaction spectrum from saprophytic to symbiotic interactions. Purely descriptive profiling studies, for example RNAseq or transcriptomics, are not encouraged. Manuscripts of this type should include functional studies and provide mechanistic or novel insights that advance our understanding. Manuscripts that fall outside the scope of the journal will be rejected.

In addition to the principal content of full length and short research papers, Molecular Plant Pathology publishes Technical Advances, Reviews and Microreviews, Pathogen Profiles and Opinion Pieces. The journal is dedicated to minimizing the time between submission, review and publication and to providing a high quality forum for original research in molecular plant pathology.

No printed page or handling charges. Average time from submission to first decision is 26 days.
