Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Flower and fruit development are processes tightly regulated by genes and phytohormones. In recent decades, an enormous wealth of information and knowledge has been obtained on the developmental processes underlying the formation and development of flowers and fruits in model plants, non-model plants, and crops. The generation, integration, and translation of gene regulatory networks driving development are important goals of many colleagues around the world. Many challenges and opportunities lie ahead of the generation of a deep understanding of regulatory networks guiding plant reproductive development. This Special Issue of Plants will highlight the function of genes, phytohormones, and gene regulatory networks in flower and fruit development.

Prof. Dr. Stefan de Folter

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Plants is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
