Dear colleagues,

We have started the 11th Volume of Hortus Botanicus!

Unfortunately, we were not able to begin with the start of 2016; however, we have managed to process first articles between February 23 and March 8 – the Defender of the Fatherland Day and the Women’s Day, both widely celebrated Russian holidays.

With this, we salute the upcoming arrival of spring!

I am not going to reveal authors of the first articles, even though I would love to so much!

Let me start with our future perspectives of our Journal:

Starting from 2016, we are going to publish Annexes to the Journal. Such Annexes can be dedicated to the following topics: 

  • key publications about new findings and technologies, 
  • description of new taxa, 
  • researches and thoughts by employees of botanical gardens that do fit to the Hortus Botanicus general area of study, 
  • conference materials, 
  • monographs, 
  • lists of seeds,  
  • catalogues of plants. 

All Annexes will be revised and reviewed; their indexing will be organized in a separate way with a separate DOI number assigned to an Annex straight after the publication. An Annex will have its own cover and a content.

For those of you who fancy charts and citing, we announce that Hortus Botanicus articles can be found on ResearchGate by their English title.

Website http://hortusbotanicus.ru/ will be included to the Journal, as well as our previous information sources: http://garden.karelia.ru/look/index.shtml
http://catalog.hortusbotanicus.ru/cgi-bin/look/bgs_info.pl?mode=2&num=RU. It will take some time to organize everything in a proper manner, so we kindly ask for your patience.

If you wish to discuss the Journal and our linked information sources in person, you are invited to the introduction meeting in St Petersburg in June 2016. Please keep yourself informed for the further information.

Finally, I would like to congratulate all of us on the inclusion of Hortus Botanicus to AGRIS and to the Higher Attestation Commission List of referenced journals!

Sincerely yours,

Aleksei Prokhorov
