I am pleased to mention that during the year 2020, all issues of volume 14 were published online well within the time and the print issues were also brought out and dispatched within 30 days of publishing the issue online.
Modern Phytomorphology during this year also, has published quality articles and a few other articles are in pipeline as well. The journal publishes original research articles, reviews and short reports covering experimental and field of plant biology. Modern Phytomorphology is especially focused on anatomical, morphological, physiological and related taxonomical investigations of plants and fungi in a wide sense. But it also accepts research results from other fields of botany, e.g. phytogeography, vegetation, and phytosozology.

During 2020 around 19 articles were subjected for publication after they are accepted in the peer review process. Modern Phytomorphology has a hybrid continuous publishing model, which means that papers are publishing on-line as soon as they are processed, while the hard version of full volume is printed just once per year and includes all papers of the current year. A total of 80 research scientists from all over the world reviewed the 19 articles published in volume 14. Average publication lag time of an article was further reduced to 2-3 weeks.
