PMN Implements Journal Publication Fee

Plant Management Network announces a new publication fee for its peer-reviewed journals: Crop Management, Forage and Grazinglands, Applied Turfgrass Science, and Plant Health Progress. The fee goes into effect for all accepted manuscripts submitted on or after January 1, 2010. Rates are a flat fee (not per page charge) of $150 for full articles and $100 for Briefs, payable at the author proof stage of production. The fees are necessary to partially defray the direct expenses of publishing PMNís not-for-profit online journals, including electronic peer review, editorial and production labor, and website maintenance and hosting. Thank you for your support.

PMN to Develop Focus on Potato

The Plant Management Network has developed a prototype for a new commodity-based resource, titled Focus on Potato.  This resource will feature webcasts, an extension search, and other resources that ultimately help practitioners develop healthier, higher-yielding potato crops. Help launch this important new resource by becoming a Focus on Potato sponsor or a PMN partner.

Publish Your Proceedings with PMN

Reach hundreds of thousands of potential readers by publishing the proceedings of your symposium, workshop, or other event online within the Plant Management Network. Your topic should be within PMNís scope of applied agricultural / horticultural crop management and protection. Publication fees do apply in support of PMNís not-for-profit mission, which you may wish to plan into the events budget. So, please contact us early to discuss costs, format, and other details.
