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.

  • Offers the latest developments in innovative research to scientists active in potato research
  • Includes original research and review papers, short communications, and more
  • 100% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely 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.

  • The Potato Association of America
