Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Phytohormones are naturally occurring small organic molecules or substances that influence physiological processes in plants at very low concentrations. They are important chemical messengers or signals that are involved in the regulation of gene expression. The elucidation of the molecular mechanisms of plant hormone action contributes to the understanding of plant biology.

By now, various studies have highlighted the role of phytohormones such as auxins, gibberellins (GAs), cytokinins, and brassinosteroids (BRs) in plant growth and development. The involvement of abscisic acid, salicylic acid, ethylene, and jasmonates has been well established in the plant responses toward environmental stresses.

This Special Issue will focus on recent advances in the function and mechanism of phytohormones. We welcome novel original research related to the functions of phytohormones in plant growth, development, and environmental stress adaptation.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
