Journal of Experimental Botany

2020 Impact Factor = 6.992

The Journal of Experimental Botany (JXB) is dedicated to publishing high quality research and reviews across the plant sciences. JXB is owned by the Society for Experimental Biology (SEB), with all profits reinvested to support the research community through the Society’s activities. JXB has a diverse and experienced editorial board.

Many FESPB members will be included in a Read & Publish agreement between their institution and our publisher Oxford University Press. This means that the charge for publishing Open Access (OA) in JXB will be paid in full with funds made available by their institution as part of the agreement, with no direct cost to the authors. For FESPB members not included in a Read & Publish agreement, authors may publish for free with a non-OA licence, or we offer a 5% discount on the OA publishing charge. JXB also offers the opportunity for session organisers at the FESPB meeting to organise a special issue of JXB on their chosen topic area.

As part of our commitment to help early career researchers (ECRs), JXB provides €2000 sponsorship for one of the two FESPB Awards to young scientists, and invites both FESPB Award winners to write a review article for the journal.
