Plant Growth Regulation is an international journal that aims to explore plant growth and development, their regulation, and the physiological and environmental factors that influence these processes. Emphasis is placed on phytohormones, stress physiology and biochemistry, molecular biology, plant omics, and plant-microbe interactions.

Published studies report on research using a variety of approaches including molecular, genetic, environmental, biophysical, developmental, omics, or physiological methods. Reviews that present a synthesis and discussion of timely and emerging topics in plant growth and development are welcome. The journal also considers opinions and perspective articles – for more information on the format for these article types, please see the following page.
