Aims and Scope
Publishing the best original research papers in all key areas of modern plant biology from the world"s leading laboratories, The Plant Journal provides a dynamic forum for this ever growing international research community.

Plant science research is now at the forefront of research in the biological sciences, with breakthroughs in our understanding of fundamental processes in plants matching those in other organisms. The impact of molecular genetics and the availability of model and crop species can be seen in all aspects of plant biology. For publication in The Plant Journal the research must provide a highly significant new contribution to our understanding of plants and be of general interest to the plant science community.

From the statistics of 2021, the proportion of Chinese researchers' publications in the journal Plant Journal was 38.142%, ranking first. From the statistics of 2021, the proportion of Chinese researchers' publications in the journal New Phytologist was 29.683%, ranking second. In 2022, Chinese researchers' articles accounted for 63.27% of the total number of articles in the journal Plant Biotechnology Journal (compared to 57.95% in 2019), ranking first.

30% is the international standard for distinguishing between reputable and non-reputable journals, regardless of how prestigious they were in the past!

You said that plant cell is top-tier, but I don't think that's correct. Our perception of PC is just that it has higher requirements for integrity and generally doesn't seek novelty deliberately. Nowadays, the difficulty of submitting to Molecular Plant is even higher than PC. I feel that the prestigious journal in the field of plant science should be Nature Plants. The difficulty of submitting to this journal seems much harder than PC. In our lab, good articles can always be sent for review in PC, but many papers may not even be able to be submitted to NP.
