ISHS online submission and review tool guidelines for authors.

Acta Horticulturae author guidelines.


As a symposium under the aegis of ISHS, we will publish a special issue of Acta Horticulturae, peer-reviewed conference proceedings featuring plum and prune genetics, breeding and pomology.

All presenters whose abstracts are accepted for oral presentations or keynote lectures must submit a manuscript for Acta Horticulturae. Page limitation for oral and keynote presenters are 8 and 16 pages, respectively.

Manuscript submission for poster presentations is optional. Page limitation for poster presenters is 8 pages.

Unlike typical journal publications, Acta Horticulturae manuscripts are prepared as ‘print-ready’ with minimum final editing by ISHS publication staff. To ensure the quality of our publication, all authors are requested to carefully read the Authors Guide to prepare their manuscript. Your manuscript should look like this sample manuscript.

Upon acceptance of your abstract, you will be invited to submit a manuscript through ROSA. Please follow the ROSA submission guidelines for authors.

For authors with English as their second language, please have your English-speaking colleagues or professional Scientific English editors review your manuscript before submitting it to us, so that reviewers can focus on the contents rather than grammar.

Each manuscript will be reviewed by two reviewers selected by the Editors. Authors will be requested to submit the final manuscripts addressing reviewers’ comments within 4 weeks after receiving the review.
