Horticultural Plant Journal (HPJ) is an international OPEN ACCESS journal. HPJ covers all aspects of horticultural crop sciences, including germplasm resources, genetics & breeding, tillage & cultivation, physiology & biochemistry, ecology, genomics, biotechnology, plant protection, and postharvest processing. Our objects of research are the horticultural plants, including fruits, vegetables, ornamental plants, tea plants, and medicinal plants.

HPJ article types include original research papers, reviews, and short communications. The strict peer-review procedure guarantees the academic level and increases the reputation of the journal.

HPJ is an SCIE journal. The other databases include Scopus, Biological Abstracts (BA) & BIOSIS Previews (BP), Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ), CABI Abstracts, Food Science and Technology Abstracts, CNKI Global, and CSTPCD.

HPJ authors benefit from publishing in open access models on ScienceDirect to share their discoveries with international communities, peer-review, easy online submission, and speed publication.
