According to the 1998 APS members survey, the society's two most significant issues for the future are integration with other disciplines, and improving electronic communication. These concerns have been addressed by www.planthealthprogress.org.
Plant Health Progress is a new, totally online journal dedicated to plant health maintenance. The journal is multidisciplinary, integrating current information on abiotic disorders, insects, diseases, nematodes, weeds, integrated pest management, nutrients, regulatory issues, and industry and product news.
The journal's major article categories include topical reviews, diagnostic and management information, applied research, plant health notes, product and industry news, and opinions. The reviews, diagnostic, management, research, and notes sections of Plant Health Progress are fully peer reviewed and qualify as citable publications. The use of digital object identifiers assures perpetual, archival access to back issues.
As a groundbreaking journal, Plant Health Progress has a great need for new, high-quality submissions. You can make an early impact on the journal's content and share your knowledge with plant health practitioners worldwide by becoming one of the first authors to have a manuscript accepted by Plant Health Progress. Submission Guidelines are in place to facilitate electronic submission and review.
