Owing to a series of unfortunate coincidences, Nordic Journal of Botany
has not appeared regularly the last years. However, now this period has
come to an end. The journal has been completely restructured with a new
editorial office (Oikos, see www.oikos.ekol.lu.se), a new Editor in Chief (me),
a new publisher (Blackwell Munksgaard) and partly new subject editors. The first issue
for 2007 is now under production and will get a new layout and a new attractive front cover.
Nord. J. Bot. will soon have a new web site (under construction) with on-line-early access
where manuscript will be made avialable on the web before being published.
Taking advantadge of modern tools for manuscript handeling, we aim at shortening the time
from submission to paper-publication as much as possible.
However, there should be six issues in each volume of Nordic Journal
Botany and it is my conviction that we should manage with this also for
2007. This means that high-quality manuscripts that are submitted to us
now will be handled with extraordinary speed and may appear in print
already during this year! I guess you do not want to miss this unique
Manuscripts should be submitted as attached files in standard electronic
formats to the managing editor <njb at ekol.lu.se>. (Detailed instructions to
authors are not available yet, but will follow international standards for scientific
In a Linnean tradition, Nordic Journal of Botany will publish original
contributions of relevance to the botanical biodiversity on earth. All
aspects of the taxonomy, evolution, conservation and biogeography of
plants (including algae and bryophytes) and fungi may be treated.
Contributions devoted to systematics (including phylogenetics, genetic
variation within and among taxa, nomenclature and descriptions and
revisions of taxa), biogeography, conservation biology and recent
changes and threats to botanical diversity are welcomed. In addition,
manuscripts on macro- and micro-morphology, cytology, reproductive
biology and ecophysiology are welcomed provided that the findings are
presented in a taxonomic, evolutionary or biogeographical context.
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts on original research within
these fields as well as essays on recent developments in botany.
