Changes for Cyrillic submissions

Category : Editorial

Dear colleagues,
It is a time to introduce next stage of changes related to our journal.
Starting from 2017 we are changing structure of Cyrillic articles. From this moment, all Cyrillic articles MUST have English titles, authors & affiliation, abstracts and keywords. Also, Cyrillic articles MUST have all references and in-text citations in English only. In all new submissions, listed above Cyrillic elements should be excluded and replaced by English versions. List of references should be completed fully in English or, at least, contains transliterated versions of cited works. For transliteration you can use the Tool of Ukrainian Botanical Journal ( or any other available sources.

So, structure of regular Cyrillic article will be next: English title, English authors, English affiliations, English abstract, English keywords, Cyrillic body text with English in-text citations, English or transliterated list of references.

Significant Changes

Category : Editorial

Dear colleagues,

We would like to introduce several significant changes in publishing scheme of Modern Phytomorphology journal related to transition from print to electronic priority:

  1. All next papers will be published on-line as soon as they will be processed, what can be useful in the case of new findings or other competition. These will be not a pre-prints, but final versions of papers which will include continuous page numeration of current volume. The date of first appear on-line will be considered as a date of first publishing, which also will be indicated in the paper.

  2. All the papers of current year will be gathered in one volume, while the papers processed in consequent year – in next volume. Before this time we published 2 volumes per year, but now there no more need for this, and only one volume once per year will appear. This volume will be fulfill during the year and printed in limited amount required for archiving in May-June of the next year.

  3. We already published two supplements and will develop this practice. In the case, when there is need to publish extra volume or to separate some content, it will be published as supplement of current volume.

  4. We introducing further categorization of papers on: Research Articles, Data Articles, Discussion Article, Short Communications, Reviews, Editorials, Correspondences, Proceedings, Monographs, Software Descriptions, Corrigenda, and Retractions. Other categories for the papers can be applied in the case if there will be such need.

New extra volume published

Category : Editorial

Hi everyone!

This year is  plenteous for Modern Phytomorphology. Instead of 2 volumes, as usual, we published all 4. They are not so thick as it was in 2012, however they are. And this is more important. Despite of conditions of permanent military aggression and occupation, as well as deep economic crisis, we still exist and develop. Thanks to all who stay with us!

New requirements for Cyrillic references

Category : Editorial

Dear authors!

We are introducing new requirements for presentation of Cyrillic papers in the list of References of the articles. Unfortunately, machine processing protocols used by the most of international indexing platforms (such as Thomson Reuters Web of Science and others) can not operate with Cyrillic. Therefore we must to support such Cyrillic references by Romanic transliteration or English translation.

Please take it in the mind during preparation of your manuscripts!

Examples of:

a) transliteration

Андрианова Ю.Е., Тарчевский И.А. 2000. Хлорофилл и продуктивность растений. Наука, Москва.
[Andrianova Yu.E., Tarchevskiy I.A. 2000. Hlorofil i produktivnost rasteniy. Nauka, Moskva. (In Russian)]

b) translations

Недуха О.М. 2011. Гетерофілія у рослин. Альтерпрес, Київ.
[Nedukha O.M. 2011. Heterophylly in plants. Altpress, Kyiv. (In Ukrainian)]
