Peer Review Guidelines

The Journal of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas requires primary research manuscripts to undergo an external, blind, peer review, from at least 2 experts on the topic. 

The demand on a person's time to review a manuscript is understood and taken into consideration. Reviewer support is vital and greatly appreciated, and with it, our scientific publications can remain top quality! Thank you!

If you are interested in reviewing manuscripts submitted for the Journal of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (formerly Sida, Contributions to Botany) or Botanical Miscellany books, please send an email to jbrit@brit.org with "Reviewer" as the subject and your areas of interest in the body of the message. Please also include your contact information (telephone, street address, and email address). Graduate students focusing on plant taxonomy or systematics are encouraged to apply for reviewing, but please mention your student status in your email. Potential reviewers are contacted by our editors, should the need arise.
