As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

I am a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Nevada, Reno. I am actively working at the international level to develop cooperation amongst grape scientists and at the local level to establish a grape and wine industry in the dry desert climates of Nevada.
What makes for sound science?
The inclusive threshold policy for publication in BMC journals including BMC Plant Biology means that editorial decisions are largely based on the soundness of the research presented rather than the novelty or potential impact of the work. Here our Editors discuss what is required to ensure that research meets the requirement of scientific soundness.Read More

Portable Peer Review
The editors of BMC Plant Biology support initiatives that expedite the peer review process and are happy to consider manuscripts that have been reviewed in Peerage of Science. Please indicate in your cover letter if this applies to your manuscript.
