The Theoretical and Experimental Plant Physiology (TxPP) is devoted to publish original research contributions in various fields of plant physiology. To briefly refer to the journal, the short title Theor. Exp. Plant Physiol. is recommended, which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.

Articles published in TxPP are indexed or abstracted by: Scopus, JCR/SCIES, Science Citation Index Expanded (SciSearch), Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition, Google Scholar, BIOSIS, OCLC, Summon by ProQuest.

Articles published in TxPP can be transcribed partially or totally with the TxPP complete citation, including name of authors, volume, issue, pages and date. Opinions and concepts emitted are of the exclusive responsibility of the authors.

The journal receives financial support from the Brazilian Society of Plant Physiology, the National Council for Research and Development (Cnpq) and the Fundação Carlos Chagas Filho de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (Faperj).

Scope of TxPP

The Theoretical and Experimental Plant Physiology (TxPP) (ISSN 2197-0025) is an international journal, published four times per year, which is devoted to publish original research contributions in several domains of plant physiology.
TxPP publishes the following formats:

  • > Research Articles;
  • > Short Communications;
  • > Reviews;
  • > Opinion;
  • > Letters to the Editor; 

The publications should have a physiological approach related to the following sections:

  • > Biochemical Processes: primary and secondary metabolism, and biochemistry;
  • > Photobiology and Photosynthesis Processes;
  • > Cell Biology;
  • > Genes and Development;
  • > Plant Molecular Biology;
  • > Signaling and Response;
  • > Plant Nutrition;
  • > Growth and Differentiation: seed physiology, hormonal physiology and photomorphogenesis;
  • > Post-Harvest Physiology;
  • > Ecophysiology/Crop Physiology and Stress Physiology;
  • > Applied Plant Ecology;
  • > Plant-Microbe and Plant-Insect Interactions;
  • > Instrumentation in Plant Physiology;
  • > Education in Plant Physiology;

Contributions should present new and significant findings. Simple experiments on applications of existing methods or methodological and technical procedures will not be considered for publication as well as data from dose-response experiments without physiological discussion. Manuscripts assuring known aspects without coming up to a suitable understanding of the physiological mechanisms involved will be returned as a rule without review.

Misconduct on submitted manuscripts will compel us to reject them immediately. This includes double-submission, plagiarism, data manipulation and fraud. In the case of authors using material formerly published, official permission must be obtained before their reproduction. It’s recommended to append an acknowledgement of the source in their manuscript.

Acceptance will be retracted if misconduct is found after the manuscript is accepted, and a note to announce retraction will be requested to the authors. If during the review of an article, an editor is alerted to possible problems such as fraudulent data in another publication, the Editorial Office may contact the journal in which the previous publication appeared to raise the concern. Submitted manuscripts will be examined using CrossCheck system - the intention is to avoid plagiarism and verify its originality.
