Plant Pathology and Microbiology is an Open access and peer-reviewed journal that involves the study of biological nature of various plant pathogenic and useful microorganisms including fungi, bacteria, nematodes, viruses and phytoplasma. The Journal of Plant Pathology & Microbiology publishes a wide range of topics in this field that includes basic and applied subjects in microbiology (microbiology, methods in microbiology, mycology, bacteriology, virology, nematology, applied microbiology etc.), molecular genetics (molecular biology, prokaryotic molecular biology, molecular virology, genetics etc.) and plant pathology (plant pathology, methods in plant pathology, plant pathogenic microorganisms, ecology of plant pathogen, plant disease diagnosis, plant disease management, noninfectious plant disease etc.).
The journal is using Editorial Tracking System for quality in peer review process. Editorial Tracking is an online manuscript submission, review and managing systems. The single blind review process is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Plant Pathology & Microbiology or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.
*2019 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2017 and 2018 with the number of times they are cited in 2019 based on Google Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2017 and 2018, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2019 then, journal impact factor = Y/X
Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process):
Journal of Plant Pathology & Microbiology is participating in the Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process (FEE-Review Process) with an additional prepayment of $99 apart from the regular article processing fee. Fast Editorial Execution and Review Process is a special service for the article that enables it to get a faster response in the pre-review stage from the handling editor as well as a review from the reviewer. An author can get a faster response of pre-review maximum in 3 days since submission, and a review process by the reviewer maximum in 5 days, followed by revision/publication in 2 days. If the article gets notified for revision by the handling editor, then it will take another 5 days for external review by the previous reviewer or alternative reviewer.
Acceptance of manuscripts is driven entirely by handling editorial team considerations and independent peer-review, ensuring the highest standards are maintained no matter the route to regular peer-reviewed publication or a fast editorial review process. The handling editor and the article contributor are responsible for adhering to scientific standards. The article FEE-Review process of $99 will not be refunded even if the article is rejected or withdrawn for publication.
The corresponding author or institution/organization is responsible for making the manuscript FEE-Review Process payment. The additional FEE-Review Process payment covers the fast review processing and quick editorial decisions, and regular article publication covers the preparation in various formats for online publication, securing full-text inclusion in a number of permanent archives like HTML, XML, and PDF, and feeding to different indexing agencies.
