Editorial Plant Molecular Biology 44: v–vi, 2000. © 2000 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Printed in the Netherlands. The editorial below concerning the Free Flow of Ideas, Information and Materials has been cosigned by the editors-in-chief of six major plant journals. The Editors and the Editorial Boards they represent are concerned with maintaining a spirit of openness that has been vital to progress in the fundamental plant sciences. As a result, Plant Molecular Biology has adopted a policy that authors who wish to publish their work in this journal are required to make available the information and materials described in their papers to interested parties for non- profit research. A fuller description of the requirements of authors with regard to this policy will be included in a forthcoming revision of the Instruction to Authors. Stephen H.
