Scope Journal of Plant Nutrition serves as a comprehensive, convenient source of new and important findings exploring the influence of currently known essential and nonessential elements on plant physiology and growth. The journal emphasizes high value, intensive crop production in both horticulture and agronomic systems. Beneficial elements, symbiotic relationships between bacteria and fungi and crop yield, and the role of plant nutrients in disease control are some of the topics covered in addition to essential plant nutrients. Refereed by an internationally renowned editorial board ensuring the high level of scholarship, Journal of Plant Nutrition provides insightful coverage of nutritional topics, such as: -Hydroponic and greenhouse crop nutrient requirements and factors influencing plant nutrition -Nutrition involving container production -Media analysis of pine bark, peat, and artificial media -Interpretation/correlation of soil and plant analysis -Intensive production of agronomic and vegetable crops -Production and nutritional requirements of fruit, ornamental, floriculture, tropical, and foliage plants -Use of precision agriculture for nutritional requirements of crops -Plant growth promoting bacteria and elemental nutrition interactions as related to crop yield Journal of Plant Nutrition serves as a platform for researchers to present their findings to an international audience, which will help to develop research programs that will further our knowledge of plant nutrition. It is also an invaluable resource utilized by growers and consultants to develop operational fertility regimes that are based upon the current peer reviewed publications.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
