MBG Press Submission Instructions


Journal Submissions


The Annals of the Missouri Botanical Garden is a quarterly international journal primarily devoted to systematic botany and evolutionary biology. We encourage submissions of original papers dealing with significant advances in the taxonomy, phylogeny, biogeography, paleobiology, and evolution of plants, and in conservation genetics and biology, restoration ecology, and ethnobiology, using morphological and/or molecular characters, field observations, and/or database information. We also welcome reviews and papers on conceptual issues and new methodologies in systematics. Important floristic works will also be considered. Symposium proceedings discussing a broader range of topical biological subjects are also published, typically once a year. All manuscripts are peer-reviewed by qualified and independent reviewers. Please submit your manuscript online at http://annals.mobot.org.


Novon, A Journal for Botanical Nomenclature
is a quarterly, peer-reviewed botanical journal whose purpose is to publish articles establishing new nomenclature, including new taxa and new names, for vascular plants and bryophytes. Short papers typifying existing names may also be accepted. Lengthy revisions that primarily describe and discuss known species, while publishing nova incidentally, are not appropriate for Novon. Articles may be written in English or Spanish. Please submit your manuscript online at http://novon.mobot.org.


Submission guidelines for both journals are below:
