The New Journal of Botany is the academic journal of the Botanical Society of the British Isles, published on our behalf by Maney Publishing since 2011.
The New Journal carries peer-reviewed scientific papers on the following:
population and conservation biology
autecological, physiological and phenological studies
phytogeography, floristics, distribution and recording
taxonomy, systematics and evolution
plant/animal interactions, including plant biochemistry
history of botany
general or historical botany.
Potential authors are invited to submit papers via the New Journal of Botany online submission site. To discuss a proposal before submission, contact the Editor. Book reviews should be submitted by email direct to the Book Reviews Editor. Further details about the Journal, including guidance for authors, may be found here.
The New Journal of Botany (NJB to its friends) replaces the journal Watsonia, but it follows the tradition of Watsonia and should be seen as a continuation and enhancement of our previous journal, not a replacement.
The full run of Watsonia, from 1949 to 2010, is available on the BSBIís digital archive. The Society is grateful to all the authors, editors and reviewers who have contributed to Watsonia over the years.
