BSBI News is for short contributions of topical interest. It is there for members who have something interesting or informative that they would like to share with others, and is meant to be the place for the ‘ordinary’ member to express her or his opinions. It appears three times a year, in January, April and September.

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 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 is available online on the IngentaConnect web site.
