Publishing and editorship

open laptop on a desk with journals supporting the screen and glassses on keyboard

Our services and outreach include publishing as a high-impact topic. On the one hand, our library staff is in charge of the documentation of JKI scientists’ publications (publication lists). On the other hand, we are editors of various JKI publications ourselves, e.g. Journal für Kulturpflanzen / Journal of Cultivated Plants, the Julius-Kühn-Archiv or the JKI dissertation series. For others – e.g. VITIS - Journal of Grapevine Research, a JKI journal as well, and for the Journal of Applied Botany and Food Quality - we help manage the review and open access workflow through our open journal system. This system also provides free access to JKI Data Sheets, which describe either fruit varieties from our breeding programmes or plant diseases, and to the well-known BBCH Scale, a system for a uniform coding of plant growth stages based on phenological traits.

For more details on our open access publications, go directly to the JKI Open Journal System (OJS): 

We provide expert advice to JKI staff on all issues of scientific publishing – from finding the right journal for my article to open access and copyright to making posters or research data independently quotable.

Last but not least, we support JKI scientists with article processing charges in other peer-reviewed open access journals.
