A happy and productive new year to our readers, reviewers and authors! We start with a fresh look and an up-to-date Open Journal System. Unfortunately, we can currently not send bi-monthly newsletters with new journal content. Until this functionality is added again, we will use announcements such as this to inform you. In this regard: nine more articles have been added to issue 90 in the last quarter of 2017. Have a look into the archive.Read more about New year, new website!
I hope to find you well (and productive). After three months with the new website and submission system for the Journal of Applied Botany and Food Quality, we still have some improvements to implement but all in all, the editorial workflow is running smoothly again. Unfortunately, the newsletter / table of contents messages are not working as desired yet, and we have to resort to announcements such as this on the webpage. However, you can sign up for our RSS feed with https://ojs.openagrar.de/index.php/JABFQ/gateway/plugin/WebFeedGatewayPlugin/rss if you use a feed reader. You will then receive titles and abstracts of new articles as soon as they are published.
We have recently signed a co-operation with CNKI, the China National Knowledge Infrastructure, which runs a very comprehensive scientific knowledge database. The Journal of Applied Botany and Food Quality content will be indexed there in the near future, thus expanding its readership considerably.
But now on to the new content! Issue 91 as been published at the beginning of this year and up until now, 15 articles with over 100 pages in total have been added:
M.R. Perez et al: Quality aspects in open-pollinated onion varieties from Western Europe
Maszewska et al: The study of palm and rapeseed oil stability during fryingRead more about Issue 91 of Journal of Applied Botany and Food Quality with 15 new articles published
This year we want to celebrate the 100th birthday of our journal, which was first published as Angewandte Botanik (= Applied Botany) in 1919.
It started as journal for members of the Vereinigung für Angewandte Botanik (German Society for Applied Botany) only. On a monthly basis, it delivered the newest research results in the field of applied botany as well as short communications, literature reviews and reports from scientific meetings to the German speaking research community. After a short publication hiatus in the 1940ies, society members continued to report their findings, quickly exhausting the available print pages. Throughout the years, English titles and summaries where added, making the journal accessible for a wider, non-German speaking audience. The final step into the international research community was the opening of the journal for authors, who were not society members in the 1980ies. In 2004, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Qualitätsforschung - Pflanzliche Lebensmittel (German Society for Quality Research in Plant Foods) joined the journal due to partial overlap in their research focus, thus, making it the Journal of Applied Botany and Food Quality as we know it today. The latest change happened in 2013, with the switch from a subscription based print journal to an online-only gold open access journal. This once again broadened the readership and gained the attention of even more international researchers, which nowadays make up the majority of our journal authors.
Today we bring you both, the oldest volume of the journal from 1919 (in German only) and with volume 92 (2019) the newest articles. Happy reading!Read more about 100 years Journal of Applied Botany, the oldest and the newest articles are online!

Gerd Crüger wurde am 2. Juli 1928 in Königsberg/Ostpreußen geboren. In seinen jungen Jahren blieben ihm Reichsarbeitsdienst, Wehrmacht und kurze Gefangenschaft leider nicht erspart. Nach Ende des Krieges gelangte er im Jahr 1945 nach Oldenburg, beendete dort die Schulausbildung mit dem Abitur und absolvierte im Anschluss eine Lehre als Gärtner, die er am 17. März 1949 mit der sehr gut bestandenen Gehilfenprüfung abschloss. Bis zur Aufnahme des Studiums in Hannover war er als Gärtner in Baumschulen und anderen Betrieben tätig und lernte den Gartenbau eingehend von der praktischen Seite her kennen.Read more about Testmitteilung Nachruf
