Peer Review Process

All manuscripts will be evaluated by peer review with regard to international relevance, contribution to the advancement of knowledge, originality and scienti c quality. The Journal publishes original Reviews, Research papers, Short notes, and New or unusual disease reports. Submission of papers in the sections News and perspectives, Commen- tary, Current topics, and Letters to the Editor are also encouraged. The journal may publish proceed- ings (usually abstracts) of relevant conferences and workshops, and Special Issues dedicated to par- ticular relevant aspects in Plant pathology. 

The international relevance of the data to be pub- lished and the signi cant contribution to the ad- vancement of knowledge are major requirements.

  • Researchers looking for information: access to literature everywhere, not only from a campus but also from any site with wifi access.
  • Funding agencies: increased return on investment (ROI), increased visibility.
  • Universities & research institutes: greater visibility, clearer management information.
  • Libraries: increased access for target audience, financially a more attractive model than the current subscription model.
  • Teachers & students: unrestricted access to material, enriched education, allowing equality of learning in poor as well as in rich nations.
  • Science: enhanced and accellerated research cycle.
  • Citizens & society: access to knowledge / access to the results of publicly funded research.
  • Enterprises: access to critical information.
  • Publishers: transparent business model, ultimate online article distribution, ultimate visibility for articles.

Online First Articles

Phytopathologia Mediterranea publishes Online First Articles. This feature allows final revision articles to be hosted online prior to their inclusion in a final print and online journal issue. 

The only difference between Online First and issue publication will be the citation details and the addition of the Online First publication date to the second version.

Each OnlineFirst article has a unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI). This should be included in all citations. DOIs provide a persistent, permanent way to identify manuscripts published in the online environment, even after they are assigned to a print issue. Information such as volume, issue, and page numbers are not allocated to OnlineFirst articles (as that information is not known until the issue is completed), therefore these manuscripts should be cited as follows:
 
Rossi, A. Prepublished Month, Year, Article title. Phytopathologia Mediterranea. DOI: 10.14601/Phytopathol_Mediterr-0123456789123456

After the article is assigned to a specific issue, new citations can be made using volume and page number information, while still using the DOI:

Rossi, A. 2014. Article title. Phytopathologia Mediterranea 33, 211-217. DOI: 10.14601/Phytopathol_Mediterr-0123456789123456
