I am pleased to bring you volume 4, issue 4 of Pharmacognosy Communications. With this issue, Pharmacognosy Communications has reached 3.5 years of publication. Our manuscript submission numbers continue to increase steadily with every issue and we aim to continue to publish interesting, well written articles of high quality. Whilst, we have an increasing number of submissions, the editorial board and the publishers aim to maintain a rapid review process and rapid publication without lessening the quality of our publications. We are justifiably proud that we are generally able to process a manuscript through the initial editorial review process and through each review or re-review step within a couple of weeks for each phase. The outcome of this is that Pharmacognosy Communications is able to provide rapid decisions and notifications about your valuable results. We aim to maintain this rapid processing as our submission numbers increase. We also aim to ensure that Pharmacognosy Communications is a highly cited and respected journal in the field of pharmacognosy and medicinal plant research. If a previously published Pharmacognosy Communications article illustrates a point in your manuscript, then it would be beneficial for the journals ranking for it be cited instead of, or in addition to alternative citations from other sources. A high citation rating would help provide Pharmacognosy Communications with a high impact factor.Read more…
