The Journal of Plant Research is an international publication that gathers and disseminates fundamental knowledge in all areas of plant sciences. Coverage extends to every corner of the field, including such topics as evolutionary biology, phylogeography, phylogeny, taxonomy, genetics, ecology, morphology, physiology, developmental biology, cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, bioinformatics, and systems biology.

The journal presents full-length research articles that describe original and fundamental findings of significance that contribute to understanding of plants, as well as shorter communications reporting significant new findings, technical notes on new methodology, and invited review articles.

The Journal of Plant Research has been voted one of the 100 Most Influential Journals in Biology and Medicine over the last 100 Years (DBIO 100).
