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.
IMPORTANT: From April 2019, the Brazilian Journal of Botany accepts the submission of manuscripts on plant systematics employing exclusively a morphological approach. The article types including in this category are reviews, checklists, floras and description of new species. Noteworthy, for checklists and floras additional aspects are required, especially regarding conservation and biogeography. Submission fee is no longer required.
