Aims and Scope
The Journal of Experimental Botany publishes high-quality primary research and review papers in the plant sciences. These papers cover a range of disciplines from molecular and cellular physiology and biochemistry through whole plant physiology to community physiology.

Full-length primary papers should contribute to our understanding of how plants develop and function, and should provide new insights into biological processes. The journal will not publish purely descriptive papers or papers that report a well-known process in a species in which the process has not been identified previously. Articles should be concise and generally limited to 10 printed pages.

Verified Reviews
Note: Verified reviews are sourced from across review platforms and social media globally.
The first review rejected the manuscript and encouraged resubmission. After resubmission, the manuscript underwent major revisions, which were accepted by the reviewer after three rounds of review, taking nearly 5 months in total.

The main reason for the lengthy process was that one of the reviewers was a peer in the field, and their questions were very detailed and rigorous. It took a long time to satisfy this reviewer.

Additionally, the journal's status in the Author Area consistently showed "Under Review," and the specific status needed to be checked in the Submission History.

The review status initially showed "Under Peer Review," and then it changed to "Under Review" when it was returned to the editor.

It is possible to choose not to make the publication open access, which would eliminate publication fees.

I hope this information can help everyone. If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I will respond.

July 2022, submission deadline at the end of October, rejection with encouragement to resubmit (common practice for this journal).
Early December, resubmitting supplementary experiments. Received rejection letter on February 22nd. Same reviewer for the second round, one person was very satisfied, while the other raised new questions.
I got rejected by the editor because of the new questions raised by the second reviewer, which were not brought up during the initial review period...
I'm completely speechless... wasted over seven months.
If you're in a hurry, don't submit.
I'm really frustrated with this German editor.
It infuriates me... I hope the journal deteriorates.
