Publishing conference papers


For efficient delivery of research findings presented in a conference, speedy publication of the papers based on the conference presentation is inevitable. Plant Science Today starts publishing conference papers from Vol. 4, issue no. 1 (publication date: 1 Jan 2017) onwards.

How it works

The following conditions are applicable for considering a conference paper for publishing in Plant Science Today:

  • The paper must have accepted for a conference or presented either as oral or poster in a recently held event.
  • The full paper of the presentation should not be available on the Internet (which would attract plagiarism).
  • The submitted paper will be subjected to peer review from at least one subject expert and acceptance will be decided by the Editor in Chief based on the recommendation provided by the independent reviewer. 
  • The length of the paper may vary depending on the study. Manuscript may be prepared after consulting the author's instructions. Total number of figures and tables together should not exceed 8.

Article Processing Fees (APC)

The author of the accepted conference paper has to pay 50% of the standard APC (see APC details). More number of figures and tables or multi-page tables or figures would attract additional processing fees.
