NJB carries peer-reviewed scientific papers on:
- population and conservation biology
- ecological genetics
- 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 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 BSBI’s digital archive. The Society is grateful to all the authors, editors and reviewers who have contributed to Watsonia over the years.
The New Journal of Botany publishes significant plant records from the British Isles. The plant records editor is Mike Porter. To submit records, download the form below, change its name to something appropriate (e.g. Borsetshire 2012), add your records in the categories given, and send it back to Mike.
NB: the format is Excel 2007 - if you cannot open it, then email Mike for a different format.
