Theresa Culley, one of the founding editors of the Primer Notes section, will serve as APPS's first Editor-in-Chief. "This is a very exciting time for the BSA as we launch a new journal that will serve as a publication outlet for novel protocols and technological advancements within all areas of the plant sciences," Culley said. "Given the unprecedented, rapid progress today in the development of diverse techniques ranging from next-generation sequencing and gene silencing to ecosystem modeling and geographic information systems (to only name a few), the purpose of APPS is to foster communication within the botanical community in order to advance the plant sciences. We welcome all contributions representing the breadth of interests within the BSA, as indicated by the many special interest sections of the Society."
Authors wishing to contribute papers to APPS should submit online through AJB's Editorial Manager page (http://www.editorialmanager.com/ajb/; use article type: "AJB Primer Notes & Protocols"). A separate online submission site will be established for APPS later this summer. While marker notes will continue to be accepted for consideration, the editorial board especially encourages submissions of protocols and methods that improve investigations in any area of plant biology, including methods on genetic markers, morphological, physiological, biochemical, anatomical, and ecological data collection. For submission guidelines, article types, etc., please consult the Primer Notes Instructions for Authors (http://www.botany.org/ajb/APPS_Online_Instructions.html).
