Abstract

Plant Molecular Biology 52: vii–viii, 2003. vii Editorial Plant Molecular Biology: A Commitment to Excellence in Plant Sciences After almost two years as Editor-in-Chief for Plant Molecular Biology, I am pleased to report about progress the journal has made in gaining impact among the international journals and improving its editorial review process. And we have more changes planned for the near future to serve the research community as a leading journal in the burgeoning field of plant sciences. Since it was founded in 1981 by Robert A. Schilperoort, Plant Molecular Biology continues to rank among the leading journals. In a recent survey of the top 25 journals for plant papers published dur- ing the years 1992–2002, PMB ranks number 6 for total citations and number 16 for citations per paper (http://www.esitopics.com/arab/journals/e1a.html). These strong rankings are especially notable considering the breadth of papers on many different plant systems published in Plant Molecular Biology. While the Editorial Board recognizes this important scope of the journal, we also feel that current trends in plant research offer unique opportunities to publish more high-impact papers in development, intracellular compartmentalization and traffic, signal transduction, functional genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics.
