Plant and Fungal Systematics is an international peerreviewed openaccess fasttrack fullcolor journal. Articles are published online with full pagination immediately upon acceptance and hardcopies are published twice a year July December. It was founded in 1953 as Fragmenta Floristica et Geobotanica and continued as Polish Botanical Journal after 2001.The main goal of Plant and Fungal Systematics is to promote integrated systematic biology fusing traditional approaches modern molecular techniques and bioinformatics tools in order to more effectively describe plant and fungal biodiversity within a phylogenetic framework. Detailed descriptions and illustrations of morphological characters for newly introduced species and deposition of voucher specimens cultures DNA sequences alignments and phylogenies in public repositories are central to this endeavor.Plant and Fungal Systematics publishes original research papers of the highest quality review articles on timely subjects and book reviews. The journal articles address the biodiversity taxonomy molecular systematics and evolution of algae broadly defined cyanobacteria bryophytes vascular plants fungi oomycetes and myxomycetes.

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.

Plant and Fungal Systematics

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
