The South-Western Journal of Horticulture, Biology & Environment publishes papers in board field of horticulture, biology and environmental sciences. It was founded in 2010 by a group of Romanian researchers that recognize the necessity to create a new peer reviewed scientific journal in Romania. They also recognized the need of giving possibility for researchers to publish their research quickly, and in visible way. The SwJHBE is currently published two times every year (in July and December). The manuscripts submitted in SwJHBE should be primary research papers, reviews and opinion papers. Original research papers are welcomed both as full-length papers or short notes. Review papers should deal with topics of general interest or of contemporary importance, being synthetic rather than comprehensive in emphasis.
