Journal of Plant Nutrition serves as a comprehensive, convenient source of new and important findings exploring the influence of currently known essential and nonessential elements on plant physiology and growth. The journal emphasizes high value, intensive crop production in both horticulture and agronomic systems. Beneficial elements, symbiotic relationships between bacteria and fungi and crop yield, and the role of plant nutrients in disease control are some of the topics covered in addition to essential plant nutrients. Refereed by an internationally renowned editorial board ensuring the high level of scholarship, Journal of Plant Nutrition provides insightful coverage of nutritional topics, such as: -Hydroponic and greenhouse crop nutrient requirements and factors influencing plant nutrition -Nutrition involving container production -Media analysis of pine bark, peat, and artificial media -Interpretation/correlation of soil and plant analysis -Intensive production of agronomic and vegetable crops -Production and nutritional requirements of fruit, ornamental, floriculture, tropical, and foliage plants -Use of precision agriculture for nutritional requirements of crops -Plant growth promoting bacteria and elemental nutrition interactions as related to crop yield Journal of Plant Nutrition serves as a platform for researchers to present their findings to an international audience, which will help to develop research programs that will further our knowledge of plant nutrition. It is also an invaluable resource utilized by growers and consultants to develop operational fertility regimes that are based upon the current peer reviewed publications.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Journal of Plant Nutrition

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
