Special Issue Information

The aim of this special issue titled Biosciences, Agriculture and Integrated Crop Protection (BAICP) of Research in Plant Sciences Journal is to enhance health, food security and safety by giving an opportunity to researchers to showcase their experiences and results that portray various bioscience approaches and techniques applied in plant regeneration and agriculture especially to develop, regenerate, improve or protect food crops and medicinal plants. The manuscripts submitted must be original, have not been published and are not going to be considered for publication elsewhere. Authors should certify that neither the manuscript nor its main content have already been published or submitted for publication in another journal and that, if the manuscript will be accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form without the written permission of Research in Plant Sciences Journal.
The special issue intends to publish papers dealing with all aspects of agriculture, crop protection and medicinal plants. Articles must present information that provides scientific or technological advancement in the specific field of interest of the journal (Instructions to authors at: and enhance its strong international reputation.
BAICP will publish original research articles, review articles, short communications and technical notes on all aspects of agricultural sciences especially those related to crop protection and medicinal plants.
