The Journal of Plant Diseases and Protection (JPDP) is an international scientific journal that publishes original research articles, reviews, short communications, opinion and perspectives papers dealing with applied scientific aspects of plant pathology, plant health, plant protection and findings on newly occurring diseases and pests. "Special Issues" on coherent themes often arising from International Conferences are offered.
Scientists are encouraged to submit manuscripts on virtually all aspects of plant diseases, pathogenesis, integrated plant protection, biology and molecular biology of viruses, bacteria, phytoplasms, oomycota, fungi and herbivores, including nematodes, mites, insects, snails and rodents. In addition, manuscripts on the interaction with the host plants are welcome.
JPDP has a significant interest in all aspects of plant protection, including research describing the mode of action and efficacy of pesticides as well as pesticide resistance. Monitoring, forecasting and application technologies will also be a included. Although JPDP primarily focuses on plant diseases and protection, hence the name of the journal, it also considers manuscripts on legislative aspects.
Prerequisites for research results to be published in the JPDP are a clearly stated hypothesis on the novel elements dealt with in the contribution, which in turn should be based on a thorough analyses going beyond the mere description of a novel biological agent or process.
We accept manuscripts from all over the world provided that the themes and research areas are of relevance for European plant health and protection.
The Journal is the official organ of the German Society for Plant Protection and Plant Health r.S. (Deutsche Phytomedizinische Gesellschaft e.V. - DPG). DPG members have free access to this online-edition of The Journal of Plant Disease and Protection – it is included in the membership fee.
Peer review is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts. This database is shared with the European Journal of Plant Pathology.

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.
