Trends in Phytochemical Research (TPR) is an international scientific and free of charge journal devoted to the publication of original articles focusing on:

  • Phytochemical evaluations of essential oils or organic extracts in a wide spectrum of herbal plants
  • Bioactivities of phytochemicals
  • Plant chemistry and biochemistry
  • Development, improvement, validation and/or extension of application of analytical methodology in the plant sciences
  • Ethnopharmacology and traditional uses of medicinal plants
  • Food processing
  • Agricultural aspects of medicinal plants
  • Bioinformatics/computational biology approaches
  • Papers dealing with novel methods relating to areas such as data handling/data mining in plant sciences will also be welcomed.
  • The journal also invites original review papers advancing knowledge of plants in respect to their chemistry, function, biosynthesis, effects on other plants, and pathology. Moreover, comprehensive review papers normally no more than 60 pages) on recent advances in specific areas of plant analysis, and mini-reviews (strictly no more than five pages) covering the highlights of any particular hot topic in phytochemical analysis will be published.
