The Journal of Applied Botany and Food Quality (JABFQ) is an international open access journal dedicated to applied research in botany and plant food quality. The aim of the journal is to provide a platform for scientists to disseminate recent results of applied plant research in the fields of e.g. plant physiology and plant ecology, plant biotechnology, plant breeding and cultivation, phytomedicine, plant nutrition, plant stress and resistance, plant microbiology, plant analysis (including -omics techniques), and plant food chemistry. Within these fields, manuscripts are expected to have a clear focus on botanical and plant quality aspects and to contain new and innovative information based on state-of-the-art methodologies. Authors should clearly state and evaluate their specific research hypotheses and place their results into a conceptual framework. Research results must have general applications, should not be of a pure corroborative nature and should not be of only local significance. Novelty and significance of the work should be adequately discussed by the authors. JABFQ will publish articles on the application of a standard method on a new species or cultivar only, if the results are critically evaluated and put into context to already published studies. Contributions which emphasize pure agronomic research related to the fields above and which describe food processing technologies or research on medical plants with a focus on pharmaceutical rather than on botanical aspects are unsuitable for publication. Accepted papers will be published online after typesetting usually 6 to 8 weeks after acceptance and are freely accessible for everyone. JABFQ publishes original articles and reviews.

Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2020 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Journal of Applied Botany and Food Quality


The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
