The Journal of Applied Horticulture (JAH)
JAH is an official publication of the Society for the Advancement of Horticulture, founded in 1999. JAH is published thrice a year, publishes papers of original work (or results), & rapid communications and reviews on all aspects of Horticultural Science which can contribute to fundamental and applied research on horticultural plants and their related products. The essential contents of manuscripts must not have been published in other refereed publications. Submission of a manuscript to the Journal implies no concurrent submission elsewhere.
Global Response
The Society for Advancement of Horticulture has been making efforts for the last few years to popularize the Journal and attract leading scientists and professionals to share their work and opinions with the community. The progress in this area has been very heartening. The Journal now boasts of an impressive list of contributors from around the world (more than 33 countries), who have written on various research areas of horticulture.

Diverse Area of Horticultural Research
An analysis of the profile of contributors and the areas covered show that papers have been published on improvement and genetic resources (23.03%), production technology  (30.90%), postharvest studies and processing (21.81%), diseases and pests (10.90%), biotechnology and tissue culture (11.51%) and economics (1.81%) of horticultural crops. Papers contributed in JAH are on wide variety of crops (78 species), which includes ornamental crops (10.90%), medicinal and aromatic (3.63%), fruits (65.45%) and vegetables (20.00%).

The Journal has evoked overwhelming response from the fraternity. The number of subscribers continues to climb on a daily basis. The subscribers include leading universities and research organizations from around the globe as well as eminent personalities from the field of horticulture.

Rapid Publication
  JAH promotes the rapid publication of research papers. During last one year the total time take for peer-reviewing, copyediting, and publishing  has reduced drastically. For quick evaluation, authors can submit their manuscripts online also. Our objective is to inform authors of the decision on their manuscript at the earliest. Following acceptance, a paper will normally be published in the next available issue.
Review Policy and Procedure
  All manuscripts must be submitted in English. Submitted manuscripts that do not conform to the JAH will be returned to authors for correction. A manuscript number is assigned to each manuscript, which will be sent to the corresponding author.  Always refer to the manuscript number in all correspondence thereafter.

Manuscripts submitted for publication are reviewed by two peer reviewers. Reviewed manuscripts are sent back to the corresponding author along with comments from reviewers. Some revision is usually necessary after the reviews, and final acceptance generally depends on extent of revision. In submitting revised manuscripts, authors are requested to submit explanations on how the revisions were made and the reason why they do not agree with the reviewers for those points on which they have no revision. The corresponding authors will be notified for acceptance.
