The Editorial Board consists of Editors from different countries and a group of Technical Editors, competent research scientists in their respective fields. 

About seven years ago, an initiative was started to expand the scope and geographic representation of the Editorial Board of Journal of Applied Horticulture. A glance of Members of Editorial Advisory Panel will reveal that this initiative has indeed been very successful, with over twelve countries represented in a board of members. However, nominating and electing members alone is not enough. The goal of such measures is also to attract both authors and readers from a wider and more diverse scientific community.

Journal of Applied Horticulture (1999-2013) now has a more diverse and international representation on the editorial board, more fully reflecting the horticultural research agenda internationally.

Because the geographical location of the editors is not important, transglobal interactions can be enhanced by participation of editors from almost any country. Participation of editors, and guest editors, from different countries can focus attention on activities that might go unnoticed without the broader perspective that the added geographical diversity provides. Placing the published contributions on the WWW makes them available, without mailing delays, promptly to almost everywhere.
