The European Journal of Plant Pathology is an international journal publishing original articles in English dealing with fundamental and applied aspects of plant pathology; considering disease in agricultural and horticultural crops, forestry, and in natural plant populations. The types of articles published are :Original Research at the molecular, physiological, whole-plant and population levels; Mini-reviews on topics which are timely and of global rather than national or regional significance; Short Communications for important research findings that can be presented in an abbreviated format; and Letters-to-the-Editor, where these raise issues related to articles previously published in the journal. Submissions relating to disease vector biology and integrated crop protection are welcome. However, routine screenings of plant protection products, varietal trials for disease resistance, and biological control agents are not published in the journal unless framed in the context of strategic approaches to disease management.

Peer review is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts. This database is shared with the Journal of Plant Diseases and Protection.

  • Journal owned by the KNPV (The Royal Netherlands Society of Plant Pathology)
  • Associated with the European Foundation for Plant Pathology but with a global remit
  • Editor-in-Chief: Professor Mike Jeger, Imperial College London, Silwood Park campus
  • An Editorial Board with representation from 16 European and non-European countries
  • Presents all aspects of plant pathology research from molecular aspects of host-pathogen interaction to epidemiology and disease management, with particular emphasis on experimental approaches; and also following prior discussion with the Editor-in-Chief, mini-reviews on topical issues
  • Offers "Special Issues" on coherent themes often arising from International Conferences
  • Covers all plant pathogenic organisms: viruses and virus like organisms (and their vectors); procaryotes; oomycetes, fungi, nematodes and parasitic plants
  • 94% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
