Scope and Aims

Plant and Fungal Systematics is an international, completely free, peer-reviewed, open-access, fast-track, full-color journal, published by W. Szafer Institute, Polish Academy of Sciences in Krakow (Poland). Articles are published online with full pagination immediately upon acceptance, and hardcopies are published twice a year (July, December).

Journal was founded in 1953 as Fragmenta Floristica et Geobotanica and continued as Polish Botanical Journal after 2001. Since 2018 journal continues the publication under the current title: Plant and Fungal Systematics.

The main goal of Plant and Fungal Systematics is to promote integrated systematic biology (fusing traditional approaches, modern molecular techniques and bioinformatics tools) in order to more effectively describe plant and fungal biodiversity within a phylogenetic framework. Detailed descriptions and illustrations of morphological characters for newly introduced species, and deposition of voucher specimens, cultures, DNA sequences, alignments and phylogenies in public repositories are central to this endeavor.

Plant and Fungal Systematics publishes original research papers of the highest quality, larger monographs, review articles on timely subjects, short communications, and book reviews. The journal articles address the biodiversity, taxonomy, molecular systematics and evolution of algae (broadly defined), cyanobacteria, bryophytes, vascular plants, fungi, oomycetes and myxomycetes.
