-molecular plant-microbe interactions

Choose MPPOL to publish your paper for:

Our target is seven weeks from submission to publication - compared to
several months for most paper journals.

All papers are subject to rigorous peer review.

Easily accessible from your own computer.
Powerful search and retrieval facilities enable you to find the
information you want and then download it or print it out.

All costs of producing MPPOL are borne by the BSPP as a service to plant
pathology. No subscription charges. No page charges.

Colour illustrations and moving images are encouraged at no cost.
Extensive sequence data can be published and readily extracted for
further analysis (a sequence analysis helper application will soon be
available free with MPPOL).
Sequence database references include http links to fetch the relevant
Easy-to-read format with figure thumbnails in the margin and separate
frame for references.
Covered by major abstracting services, e.g. CAB International.

web browser off-line.
All papers published in MPPOL will remain available on the world wide
web for reference.
Secure archiving of all papers on CD-ROM.

We recommend this journal to you as a first choice for publishing your
