Aims and Scope
New Phytologist publishes excellent, novel, rigorous and timely research and scholarship in plant science and its applications. Falling within four sections – Physiology & Development, Environment, Interaction and Evolution – articles cover topics that range from intracellular processes through to global environmental change. Cross-disciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged but for guidance the journal is organized as below. We recognize that techniques from molecular and cell biology, and functional genomics through to modelling and system-based approaches will be applied across the whole spectrum of plant science:

• Physiology & Development: intra/inter-cellular signalling, long-distance signalling, physiology, development, eco-devo – phenotypic plasticity, transport, biochemistry.

• Environment: global change and Earth system functioning, environmental stress, ecophysiology, plant–soil interactions, heavy metals.

• Interaction: plant–biotic interactions (including viruses, prokaryotes, oomycetes, fungi/mycorrhizas, viruses, nematodes and insects), symbionts, endophytes, pathogens, plant microbiome, fungal genomics, multitrophic systems, plant–microbe–soil interactions.

• Evolution: molecular evolution, population or quantitative genetics, mating systems, phylogenetics, speciation, plant–enemy coevolution, evo–devo.

According to the statistical results of 2020, Chinese researchers accounted for 28.494% of the publications in the journal Plant Physiology, ranking second. However, in the statistical results of 2021, Chinese researchers accounted for 38.142% of the publications in the journal Plant Journal, ranking first. In the same year, Chinese researchers accounted for 29.683% of the publications in the journal New Phytologist, ranking second. In 2022, the proportion of Chinese articles in the journal Plant Biotechnology Journal accounted for 63.27% of the total number (compared to 57.95% in 2019), ranking first.

30% is the threshold for low-quality journals, regardless of how classic your previous publications were!

Feeling that the editor is not very professional, the whole process of submitting the manuscript for half a year has been a hassle, and the questions raised by the editor and reviewers are difficult to comprehend (probably because they didn't understand many experimental designs). The reputation of this magazine abroad is mediocre. In fact, this magazine has always been second-rate. In China, only the impact factor is considered, and there is a lot of hype involved. After acceptance, I took a look at the articles in this magazine. Research articles are dominated by Chinese authors. It seems that a high impact factor can only attract Chinese submissions. I have no positive impression at all.
