Weeds – Journal of the Asian-Pacific Weed Science Society

About the Journal

Weeds – Journal of the Asian-Pacific Weed Science Society is a peer-reviewed online, journal dedicated to understanding weeds and promoting improved weed management within the context of ecologically responsible and sustainable agriculture and management of our environment. It is the official journal of Asian-Pacific Weed Science Society (APWSS).

Weeds will accept article submissions from its members and non-members. The Journal seeks original-contributions from both scientists and practitioners, which focus on the biology, ecology and management of weeds, but will consider cross-disciplinary contributions, which may be highly relevant to weeds in both agriculture and general environment. Review articles that critically analyze and interpret already published research data are most welcome, but prospective authors must not submit articles that have been published or are under consideration for publication elsewhere.

While the journal focuses on Weed Science and management in the Asian-Pacific region, contributions from elsewhere will be considered if distinctly relevant to promotion of improved understanding and management of weeds in the region.

All manuscripts submitted to Weeds will be first evaluated based on scientific quality, originality, appropriateness, contribution to the field of Weed Science, and style. Suitable manuscripts will then subject to rigorous, fair, and rapid peer review. Initially, two issues of Weeds will be published per year, and these are to be initially published in June and December and all articles will be made available freely, on-line at the time of publication.

The ISSN is: 2652-533 X (online)
