Scope Plant Signaling & Behavior, a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal published monthly online, publishes original research articles and reviews covering the latest aspects of signal perception and transduction, integrative plant physiology, and information acquisition and processing. Plant Signaling & Behavior serves as a platform for publication of data related to different levels of biological organization: from molecules, via protein complexes, membranes, organelles, cells, organs, whole plants, up to plant communities. This journal also covers studies on communication and interactions of plants with viruses, bacteria, nematodes, fungi, insects, and predatory animals. These interactions can be pathogenic, symbiotic or predatory. Plant Signaling & Behavior provides a forum for the integration of molecular biology with physiology, phenomenology, and behavior of individual organisms, up to the system analysis of whole plant societies and ecosystems. This integrative view will allow our understanding of communicative plants in their whole complexity.

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.
