Scope The journal is published on behalf of the Italian Botanical Society ( Founded in 1969 as Informatore Botanico Italiano, the journal was initially conceived as a place to publish proceedings of the Society, book reviews etc. During the years, however, the journal acquired scientific contents so that, in 2015, the Italian Botanical Society moved it to the Pensoft platform, with the new name Italian Botanist, in order to disseminate its contents more efficiently. It publishes original research covering all fields of Botany in its wider sense, from molecular to ecosystem levels, including Mycology. The geographical coverage of the journal is specially focused on the Italian territory, but studies from other areas are also welcome. It is a peer-reviewed, open-access, journal.

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.
