Ethnobotany Research and Applications

Dear colleagues,

it is almost unbelievable how fast 2019 has passed, and we are going into a new publication year! Many thanks to all editors and reviewers for their hard work, that has helped to get an excellent issue to our readers. This work has already born fruit:

NEWS ON ERA SCOPUS status: ERA has again been accepted in Scopus! This update should be reflected in the Scopus online site around April 2020.

ERA currently has a rejection rate above 70%. To maintain this standard needs the efforts and involvement of as many colleagues as possible, especially as reviewers. At this time, please consider updating your user profiles, including your areas of interest, and indicate if you would like to serve as reviewer in the future. This is a service to the whole ethnobotanical community, and everyone who is publishing scientific papers, or plans to do so, should see it as their responsibility to review the papers of colleagues. 

Ethnobotany Research and Applicationsis an electronic, peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary open access  journal devoted to the rapid dissemination of current research, published by the Department of Ethnobotany, Institute of Botany, Ilia State University, Tbilisi, Georgia.

The journal seeks manuscripts that are novel, integrative and written in ways that are accessible to a wide audience. This includes an array of disciplines (biological and social sciences) concerned particularly with theoretical questions that lead to practical applications. Articles can also be based on the perspectives of cultural practitioners, poets and others with insights into plants, people and applied research.

We encourage manuscripts in the language of the country research has been conducted in, and also in indigenous languages. Authors are also encouraged to submit bilingual manuscripts, rather than simply to translate their original work into English.

Many readers have contacted us and suggested to add some additional sections to ERA. We will start these in the 2020 issues:

Repatriation of ethnobotanical studies

Often scientific studies are published in languages that are not understood in the country where the study was conducted. The new "Repatriation of ethnobotanical studies" section in ERA will try to help remedy this situation by publishing articles translated into the language of the country of origin to repatriate research as stipulated by the The Nagoya Protocol on Access to Genetic Resources and the Fair and Equitable Sharing of Benefits Arising from their Utilization to the Convention on Biological Diversity. The respective papers will be published entirely in local language, because readers can access the English versions online.

Mini Reviews

Mini reviews will represent short reviews of important plant species, in particular with regard to their use in specific regions. Mini reviews in local language, and with components that help to educate about plant use, are particularly encouraged. 

Book Reviews

ERA has by now a large readership in the ethnobotanical and ethnobiological community, and many colleagues have asked to include a Book Reviews section in the journal.
