The world's most-cited Plant Sciences journal
Plant Proteomics publishes novel and significant research articles in the field of proteomics that examine the dynamics, functions, and interactions of proteins from plant systems. Topics covered by this section include, but are not limited to:
· Comparative proteomic studies employing 2-DE, labeling, or unlabeled strategies
· Characterization of subcellular, cellular, or plant organ proteomes
· Characterization of protein modifications by mass spectrometry
· Protein-protein interactions and protein networks
· Protein cross-linking studies using mass spectrometry
· Bioinformatic analysis of proteomic data including new online resources and tools
· Novel or improved methods involving mass spectrometry
· Structural characterization and analysis of proteins using secondary structure determination techniques, small angle scattering techniques, X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, and electron microscopy
· Protein modelling if validated by experimental data
Descriptive studies that present a list of differentially abundant proteins (DAPs) in response to different conditions or treatments or as comparison of different species do not fall under the scope of the section unless they are extended to elaborate on a new pathway or biological process related to the treatment or to the species presented. Submissions to the section are expected to comply with the technical requirements for proteomics studies as indicated in the author guidelines (here). Proteomic surveys should be of sufficient depth to address the process being examined and validation of key DAPs should be presented.
Please consider the content and quality requirements for experimental studies as listed below
Indexed in: PubMed, PubMed Central, Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, AGRICOLA
PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Plant Proteomics welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols and Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Plant Proteomics, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Plant Proteomics will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Plant Science.
