Belgian Journal of Botany


The Belgian Journal of Botany is the official journal of the Royal Botanical Society of Belgium. It was first published in 1862 (at that time as the 'Bulletins de la Société Royale de Botanique de Belgique'). From 1990 on, it has been published under its present name. It appears in one volume of two issues per year.

The Belgian Journal of Botany is an international journal, open to all fields of plant sciences. Please note, however, that papers restricted to purely nomenclatural matters or to floristical data of only local interest will not be accepted. The Belgian Journal of Botany publishes reviews and invited reviews, original research papers, short notes, letters to the editor, and book reviews. Short notes are meant to report findings that, although interesting, do not warrant full coverage in the form of a regular paper. Letters are meant to be a forum for Botanists, in particular for the members of the Society.

English is the preferred language of the journal, although papers written in one of Belgium's three national languages (Dutch, French, and German) may be accepted (especially letters).
