History

Beginning in 1947, the publishing nonprofit Annual Reviews began asking plant physiologists if it would be useful to have an annual journal that published review articles summarizing the recent literature in the field. Responses indicated that this would be very favorable, and the Annual Review of Plant Physiology published its first volume in 1950.[2] Its founding editor was Daniel I. Arnon.[3] It was thus the seventh journal title to be published by Annual Reviews.[4] Its scope was somewhat reduced by the publication of the Annual Review of Phytopathology, first released in 1963.[5] In 1988, its named changed to the Annual Review of Plant Physiology and Plant Molecular Biology.[6] In the 1990s, it began having color illustrations and was published online for the first time. Its name was changed once again in 2002 to its current version, the Annual Review of Plant Biology.[7] As of 2020, it was published both in print and electronically.[8]

The journal covers developments in the field of plant biology, including cell biology, genetics, genomics, molecular biology, cell differentiation, tissue, acclimation (including adaptation), and methods.[9] According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2021 impact factor of 28.310, ranking it first of 238 journal titles in the category "Plant Sciences".[1] The journal is abstracted and indexed in the following databases.[10]

Editorial processes

The Annual Review of Plant Biology is helmed by the editor. The editor is assisted by the editorial committee, which includes associate editors, regular members, and occasionally guest editors. Guest members participate at the invitation of the editor, and serve terms of one year. All other members of the editorial committee are appointed by the Annual Reviews board of directors and serve five-year terms. The editorial committee determines which topics should be included in each volume and solicits reviews from qualified authors.[11] Unsolicited manuscripts are not accepted. Peer review of accepted manuscripts is undertaken by the editorial committee.[12]

Editors of volumes

Dates indicate publication years in which someone was credited as a lead editor or co-editor of a journal volume. The planning process for a volume begins well before the volume appears, so appointment to the position of lead editor generally occurred prior to the first year shown here. An editor who has retired or died may be credited as a lead editor of a volume that they helped to plan, even if it is published after their retirement or death.
