Plant Disease

An International Journal of Applied Plant Pathology

Purpose and Scope:

Plant Disease is the leading international journal for rapid reporting of research on new diseases, epidemics, and methods of disease control. It covers basic and applied research, which focuses on practical aspects of disease diagnosis and treatment.  Feature articles summarize current information on specific diseases. The popular Disease Notes section contains brief and timely reports of new diseases, new disease outbreaks, new hosts, and pertinent new observations of plant diseases and pathogens worldwide.

The online version of Plant Disease includes interpretive summaries and e-Xtra articles that include supplemental data tables and additional figures and photos as well as color versions of illustrations shown in black and white in the print journals.

Plant Disease ranked in the top 10 journals for impact on research and teaching efforts in the crop sciences according to Literature of Crop Science, a project published by Cornell University press. Plant Disease received the Neographics Franklin Award for Excellence in Graphic Design.

Intended Readership:

Agronomists, bacteriologists, biochemists, biologists, botanists, cell biologists, chemists, ecologists, entomologists, foresters, geneticists, horticulturists, microbiologists, molecular biologists, mycologists, nematologists, plant pathologists, plant physiologists, seed pathologists, soil scientists, virologists, and weed scientists.
