The Journal

The Brazilian Journal of Botany – BRJB (Revista Brasileira de Botânica - Revta. bras. Bot.) was created during the annual Assembly of the Brazilian Botany Society-SBB, on September 26th, 1976.
The founders were the researchers who were part of the editorial board: Dr. Gil Martins Felippe, Dr. Walter Handro, Dr. Eurico Cabral de Oliveira, Dr. Sonia M.C. Dietrich, Dr. Therezinha Sant’Anna, Dr. Peter Gibbs, and Dr. Nanuza Luiza de Menezes as the Editor-in-Chief. The first and second issues were published in 1978 and supported by Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo-FAPESP.
The journal was printed from 1978 to 1996 only, and then started its electronic version in 1997 hosted initially by Scielo  from 1997 to 2012, and has been handed over to Springer Verlag Publishing since 2013.
Over the years, the BRJB has maintained the high quality of its articles due to the actions of the different editorial boards, and today it is possible to affirm that all efforts made were rewarded from the new BRJB international version and the partnership with Springer Verlag Publishing thereby achieving an impact factor of 1.385, in 2013, which is currently 0.648.
Last year, the evolution in the rhythm of submissions and the geographic diversity of papers submitted has grown showing that its proposal has been achieved. Presently the papers cover a wide diversity of botanical themes, such as plant stress, biochemistry, water relations, ecology, biogeography, morphology and anatomy, mycology, palynology, cytogenetic, molecular diversity and economic botany.
The SBSP would like to thank the subsidies provided from all those years by Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo-FAPESP, The Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development-CNPq, and Coordination for the Improvement of Higher Educational Personnel-CAPES, making it possible to keep the previous editions running with no extra costs applied to authors. And to announce that in order to maintain the future administrative costs, the journal has decided to start charging a low cost for non-members, with AND exception when one of the authors included is a regular member of the Botanical Society of Sao Paulo and that he/she is current with their annuities, then the non-member author will be free of charge.
