About the Thematic Series

Abiotic stresses are major environmental factors that affect plant growth and survival of crop plants, particularly, cotton. Those lead to loss of yield of seed cotton and poor quality of fibres. Improving plant abiotic stress resistance is critical for agricultural productivity. Keeping in view the role of abiotic stresses, Journal of Cotton Research is hosting a thematic series on cotton abiotic stress tolerance. The research community is encouraged to share original findings, methodology, databases, software, and opinions.

Scopes of the submissions may include, but are not limited to the following topics:

1. Drought or flooding
2. Saline-alkali or acidity
3. Extreme temperature (heat and cold)
4. Nutrient
5. Toxic metals in soil

Submission deadline: 30 June 2024

Submission instructions: To ensure that you submit to the correct thematic series please select the thematic series title in the drop-down menu under the 'Additional Information' tab upon submission. In addition, indicate in your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the thematic series on 'Abiotic Stress Tolerance'. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review and accepted articles will be published within the journal as a collection.
