Scope The Brazilian Journal of Botany is an international journal devoted to publishing a wide-range of research in plant sciences: biogeography, cytogenetics, ecology, economic botany, physiology and biochemistry, morphology and anatomy, molecular biology and diversity phycology, mycology, palynology, and systematics and phylogeny. The journal considers for publications original articles, short communications, reviews, and letters to the editor. Manuscripts describing new taxa based on morphological data only are suitable for submission; however information from multiple sources, such as ultrastructure, phytochemistry and molecular evidence are desirable. Floristic inventories and checklists should include new and relevant information on other aspects, such as conservation strategies and biogeographic patterns. The journal does not consider for publication submissions dealing exclusively with methods and protocols (including micropropagation) and biological activity of extracts with no detailed chemical analysis.

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.
