Aims and scope

Colombian Journal of Horticultural Science is the official, bi-annual publication of the Colombian Society of Horticultural Science (SCCH) associated with the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS). It is a technical-scientific publication in horticulture with a focus on the tropics and sub-tropical regions of the world. Articles from the full spectrum of Horticultural Science and related areas are appropriate for publication, provided that they are of substantial interest or importance, or are likely to have a significant impact on the field of horticulture at the national or international level. The Journal publishes the results of unpublished original research, disseminates knowledge on horticultural crops and contributes to consolidation of academic community in horticulture and allied branches of science.

Editorial Policy

The official languages of the Journal are English, Spanish and Portuguese. The publication in the Journal is free of charges.

The manuscripts submitted for publication should be prepared according to the Author Instructions. The Editorial Board reserves the rights to accept or deny the manuscripts submitted for the publication. All submitted manuscripts are subjected to immediate rapid screening by the Editor, in consultation with the Editorial Board or others working in the field as appropriate, to ensure they are likely to be of the level of interest and importance appropriate for the Journal. Following a preliminary screening, all manuscripts are sent to two referee experts in the field. Referees critically review the manuscript and decide if the article is likely to be of the level of interest and importance appropriate for the Journal. In case of a disagreement between the referees, the article may be sent to a third referee. On the advice of referees, the Editor accepts or rejects the paper, or returns the manuscript to author(s) for revision. The Editor will make every effort to give author(s) a final decision following peer review within one month of a manuscript submission. If the article is accepted for publication, the author(s) should timely address the corrections suggested by the referees.

Colombian Journal of Horticultural Science authorizes reproduction and citation of its content only when the name of the Journal is mentioned in explicit form as well as name of the author(s), year, volume and pages of the consulted article. The articles published in the Journal are submitted to different databases and indexation systems (for example, Publindex) to disseminate its content. The statements and affirmations expressed by the authors are their responsibility and neither express necessarily the opinions and policies of the Editorial Board no that of the institutions of the author(s).
