Plant Physiology and Soil Chemistry (PPSC) broad-spectrum journal that welcomes high-quality submissions in all major areas of plant physiology and soil chemistry, including plant biochemistry, functional biotechnology, computational and synthetic plant biology, growth and development, photosynthesis and respiration, transport and translocation, plant-microbe interactions, biotic and abiotic stress, physical, chemical and biological processes and their interactions in soils, soil fertility and environmental science (soil formation, biological classification, mapping and management of soil), soil and water conservation and irrigation water management. Studies are welcome at all levels of integration ranging from molecules and cells to organisms and their environments and are expected to use state-of-the-art methodologies.

To be considered for publication, papers must significantly contribute to the mechanistic understanding of physiological processes, and not be merely descriptive, or confirmatory of previous results. We encourage the submission of papers that explore the physiology of non-model as well as accepted model species and those that bridge basic and applied research. For instance, studies on agricultural plants that show new physiological mechanisms to improve agricultural efficiency are welcome.
