HORTIC RES-ENGLAND

ISSN / eISSN
2662-6810 / 2052-7276
Aims and Scope
Horticulture Research publishes original research Articles and Reviews on novel discoveries focusing on all major horticultural crops, including fruits, vegetables, ornamental trees and flowers, herbs, and tea trees, both in preharvest and postharvest stages.

The research primarily focuses on basic and fundamental aspects with broad international and disciplinary interests, including, but are not limited to, genetics, breeding, all types of "-omics" and evolution, origination and domestication horticultural crops, biotechnology, biochemistry, physiology, cellular and molecular biology, and environmental biology including interactions with other organisms.

Original research articles will be published in the following headings:

genetics, breeding and germplasm;
biotechnology and genetic engineering;
genomics, proteomics and evolution;
whole plant physiology and source/sink relation;
cellular and molecular developmental biology;
biochemistry, metabolome and product quality;
interactions with environments and other biological organism.
Research focuses on methodologies and techniques will be placed in the category of novel methodology and technology.

In addition, the journal publishes Editorials, News and Views, and Comments on current, significant events and topics in global horticultural fields with international interests.

Hello, bro. I logged in and commented using my WeChat account on the mini program before, so I couldn't reply directly to you. Now I have registered a new account with my email to reply to you. I think your concerns are possible because when I was rejected by the associate editor after resubmitting my paper for half a year, the editor suggested that I submit to Vegetable Research, the journal you mentioned, which is currently without an impact factor. I also faced graduation issues. Later on, I submitted to Frontiers in Plant Science and it was accepted just over a month later. I was lucky. In fact, the six-month rejection process by HR has already delayed my graduation. I was supposed to graduate this summer, but now it's pushed to the end of the year.

If you are also in a hurry to graduate, I suggest being cautious about submitting to this journal (although I admit that it is of a high standard). Currently, the journal is slow in operation due to the high volume of submissions. What I can't stand the most is that if your research level is mediocre, they won't reject it straightforwardly. Sometimes, they just keep dragging it on and hesitate. It's really frustrating! So when facing graduation, it's better to submit to a faster journal. HR is suitable for showcasing star research results in large research groups and they don't care much about the review cycle. The era of getting a review result in three to four months is gone and won't come back.

Bro, do you know anyone around you who has submitted to this journal? I want to ask if the review process is always this long after 2021. Do studies on transcription, metabolism, and proteomics get reviewed faster? I'm wondering if it's because your work is purely theoretical and they can't find enough reviewers. Recently, South Agricultural University has collaborated with Science on two new journals. I'm afraid that if I submit to HR, they will drag the review process for six months and then ask me to switch to the other two journals that don't have impact factors yet. That would be a huge loss for me.
