The Journal of Plant Growth Regulation is an international publication featuring original articles on all aspects of plant growth and development. Published manuscripts report question-based research using hormonal, physiological, environmental, genetic, biophysical, developmental and/or molecular approaches to study the regulation of plant growth.

The journal also publishes review articles on highly relevant areas in plant growth and development – including on interdisciplinary studies with an emphasis on plant growth and plant pathology or abiotic stress – as well as brief communications describing novel techniques. 

On occasion, thematic issues with special guest editors are published in the journal. Please see here for recently published and upcoming special issues.
