The American Journal of Potato Research (AJPR), the journal of the Potato Association of America (PAA), publishes reports of basic and applied research on the potato, Solanum spp. It presents authoritative coverage of new scientific developments in potato science, including biotechnology, breeding and genetics, crop management, disease and pest research, economics and marketing, nutrition, physiology, and post-harvest handling and quality. Recognized internationally by contributors and readership, it promotes the exchange of information on all aspects of this fast-evolving global industry.

There are three general categories of publication: (1) full-length articles describing original scientific research in the form of a regular publication; (2) short communications concisely describing poignant and timely research results in four or fewer journal pages; (3) review papers, book reviews and symposium proceedings.

Peer review is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts. This database is shared with the journals Euphytica and Potato Research.
