publication devoted to distribution of important, relevant, and current
horticultural research specifically to horticultural professionals?
Exploring new ways to disseminate horticultural research is a core mission for the Horticultural Research Institute (HRI).
The Journal of Environmental Horticulture
is HRI’s bellwether publication. First published in 1983, its “raison
d’être” is to connect the industry to the research and the researchers
to the industry. Highly relevant content, directly from the source, can
help guide industry businesses to adapt with new processes and
protocols. And it’s peer-reviewed, so you can count on the legitimacy of
Until 2013, the Journal was available only to paid subscribers as a quarterly print publication. In 2013, the Journal began publishing articles online. Bringing research to life in a digital environment improved industry access to relevant horticultural research and gave researchers greater opportunity for collaboration.
Now, the Journal takes another step forward and increases access to and visibility of horticultural research. We're celebrating our 35th year of service by migrating from a subscription-based model to an open-access model and revamping the online user experience. Eliminating subscription fees means more industry professionals, researchers, extension agents, and students will have important research results at their fingertips. The new platform offers an easy-to-navigate design with fast and comprehensive search features on all content, dating back to 1983.
Furthermore, the scope of the Journal has expanded to include all aspects of the green industry, to better reflect the industry represented by HRI and AmericanHort, including but not limited to floriculture, herb and vegetable production in controlled environments, cut flower production, container and field nursery production, and all aspects of the managed landscape.
Additional sections offer notices of new cultivar releases and symposium papers.
More access to relevant content provides horticultural businesses a competitive advantage as they continue to innovate.
