Annales Botanici Fennici is an established, international, peer-reviewed journal, open to all scientists, appearing in six-number yearly volumes (until 2002 quarterly). It was founded by Societas Biologica Fennica Vanamo in 1964 replacing its predecessor which had been published between 1923 and 1963. Between 1978 and 1994 it was published by the Finnish Botanical Publishing Board, and since 1994 by the Finnish Zoological and Botanical Publishing Board. The journal is sponsored by the Ministry of Education and Culture.

The journal publishes original, previously unpublished papers on plant and fungal:

• systematics, evolution, phylogeography, taxonomy and nomenclature,
• population biology and genetics,
• physiology and molecular biology,
• terrestrial and aquatic ecology (including effects of climate change),
• ecology and reproduction of invasive species as well as their effects on native populations,
• phytogeography and paleoecology.

We also encourage submissions of in-depth reviews on any of the above-mentioned research areas as well as articles on research methodology that present and/or discuss methods of data gathering and processing, or interpretation of the results through statistical testing. Both theoretical and empirical works are warmly welcome.

Purely descriptive studies (e.g. floristic, anatomical, syntaxonomical, cytotaxonomical, ontogenetic), floristic notes (incl. new records) and manuscripts on numerical taxonomy or cultivated plants as well as manuscripts of very restricted interest are not considered. We discourage submitting manuscripts containing only proposals for new combinations without compelling reasons.

There is no page charge in Annales Botanici Fennici. Also colour illustrations are published free of charge.

OPEN ACCESS POLICY: Papers based on research funded by public grants provided by Finnish institutions and submitted in 2019 or in 2020, if accepted, will be published open access at www.annbot.net at no cost to their authors. Other papers can be published open access at www.annbot.net for a fee of 600 euros.
