“in silico Plants is delighted to gain the rare distinction of recognition by DOAJ as a trusted Open Access journal at such an early stage in the life of the journal” says Editor in Chief Steve Long. “Funders are increasingly requiring researchers to choose Open Access publishing because they require unrestricted access to research to accelerate innovation. Likewise, isP aims to accelerate innovation in multi-scale and multidisciplinary plant modelling. Equally, however, they expect these journals to be of quality, and DOAJ recognition provides that stamp of quality recognition”
