The Plant Pathology Journal
Authors preparing manuscripts should follow these instructions and use the checklist provided at the end of these instructions as a guide. Authors must submit a manuscript to The Plant Pathology Journal website at http://www.ppjonline.org. All text, including tables, should be submitted as word processing documents, and figures should be uploaded as TIFF, EPS, JPG, or PPT format. Each manuscript should be accompanied by a cover letter from the corresponding author who outlines the significance of the findings of the paper. Authors may recommend individuals to review a manuscript, and they may ask that certain individuals not review manuscript. Reason requesting exclusions should be given in the cover letter.
Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that no substantial portion of the study has been published or under consideration for publication elsewhere and that its submission for publication has been approved by all of the authors or by the institution where the work was carried out. The prerequisites for publication will be originality, clarity, and significance as relevant to a better understanding of plant pathology. Full-length original Research Articles, Research Notes, and Reviews will be published.
Upon acceptance of the manuscript, the corresponding author will be notified on the decision of the reviews in 4 to 5 weeks. Corresponding author receiving reviews and editorial recommendations for revision of a manuscript has 3 months to complete revision and return the manuscript in the editor otherwise it may be considered withdrawn.
