Indian Journal of
(JPS) is an
open access online international journal that
provides online publication of original
research work, review, and views in all
areas of Plant sciences, beginning from
classical to applied
branches. The Journal (JPS) is being
published by Centre for Info Bio
Technology (CIBTech) (Regd. No. SH/311R/2-16AP/42/09)
with an objective to promote speedy
publication of research work fulfilling the
general criteria of significance and
scientific excellence at affordable fee.
All the articles published in JPS are rigorously peer-reviewed. The Journal
is published quarterly (four numbers
per year) by the end of March, June,
September and December.
The impact factor has been used for
assessing the quality of journals.
Electronic editions of scientific journals
and the rapid spread of
scientific information modifies the pattern
of bibliographic citations, and thus affect
the impact factor. Even a decade ago it was
proved that the presence of an electronic
version of the journal circulated via
Internet is associated with the impact
factor score (Curti
et al., 2001).
Therefore it will be our prime objective to
circulate the journal far and wide, globally
so that the authors could get benefited from
its impact factor score.
