American Society of Plant Biologists
Founded in 1924, The American Society of Plant Biology promotes
the growth and development of plant biology, encourages and published research in
plant biology, and promotes the interests and growth of plant scientists in general.
ASPB membership spans six continents, and the Society plays a key role in uniting
the international plant science community. The Society also publishes Plant Physiology®
and The Plant Cell journals, as well as Teaching Tools in Plant Biology.
Teaching Tools in Plant Biology is an online feature included in a subscription
to ASPB’s journals. The “tools” combine up-to-date peer-reviewed research-based
content with flexible presentation components that can be used alone or integrated
into lesson plans so that faculty can confidently present exciting topics in your
classroom. The “tools” provide a short essay introducing each topic, PowerPoint
slides, and suggested readings.
Plant Physiology®, established in 1926, is one of the world’s oldest and most respected
international plant science journals. Its impact factor places it among the top
four plant science primary research journals, and it is the most frequently cited
plant science journal, with nearly 77,000 citations in 2016. Its five-year impact
factor is 7.428. The journal bridges basic plant science and other fields such as
molecular evolution, functional genomics, proteomics, structural biology, and biotechnology.
The Plant Cell In 1989, ASPB began publishing The Plant Cell to cover cutting-edge
research of special significance, especially in the areas of cellular biology, molecular
genetics, development, and evolution. Its five-year impact factor is 9.975.
