Aims and Scope

 Botanical Transaction is a peer reviewed international journal. It publishes original research articles and reviews on botanical studies with interest in plant ecology, vegetation and flora, biogeography, biosystematics, evolutionary biology, population biology, ecophysiology and functional ecology of plants and vegetation, and on interactions of plants with plants, animals or microorganisms. Botanical Transactions aim to bridges the gap between pure and applied botany by focusing on the uses of plants by people. Other areas covered by journal include but not limited to 

1-Responses of plants to heavy metals and pollutants 
2-Plant/water interactions (salinity, drought, flooding) 
3-Responses of plants to radiations ranging from UV-B to infrared
4-Plant/atmosphere relations (ozone, CO2 , temperature) 
5-Ecophysiology of Northern plants under global change and environmental stress 
6-Biotic interactions involving environmental factors 

We aim at contributions that explore plant biological phenomena in order to understand functionally ongoing ecological, evolutionary or physiological processes.Descriptive or applied studies are acceptable, provided that clear research questions are addressed and that findings are presented in a context fitting the scope of the journal. Articles must be relevant for an international readership.

Author Representations 
Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; that its publication has been approved by all co¬authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities — tacitly or explicitly — at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation. 

Permissions 
Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text passages that have already been published elsewhere are required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any material received without such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors. 

Online Submission 
Authors should submit their manuscripts online via the ASRE website at: http:///www.asre.res.in
Hard copy submissions are no longer accepted. Detail Guidelines can be downloadedhere. 

Review Policy
All papers submitted to our journals go through a rigorous review process. They are refereed by experts in said field before publication. There exist four possible outcomes for each paper submitted and reviewed: acceptance, acceptance after minor revision, major revision and re-submission, or rejection. This prevents the promulgation of pseudoscience and insures intellectual and scientific integrity of the findings published by SEP. The Editor-in-Chief is the first to see an author's work. They are to forward the paper to experts in the specific field discussed in the paper for review. After review, the Editor-in-Chief of the journal will look over the reviewer's comments. If two reviewers seem to hold opposite opinions of the same paper, the controversy will be resolved by the Editor-in-Chief. Ultimately, the Editor-in-Chief makes the final decision. The final decision is being one of the aforementioned possibilities: acceptance, acceptance with noted changes, or rejection of paper. We are also looking forward to offering an online journal club for each journal. This will allow a further platform for peer commendation or critique.
