Full Paper Submission Guidelines

  • Requirement

A valid International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) user account is required in order to submit the abstract. If you are currently not an ISHS member, please proceed to new member first and pay to activate your user account prior to submitting an abstract. You will then be entitled to register to the symposium at the 'ISHS member' rate.

Online submission authors guide please refer to this link.


  • Preparation

Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as - tacitly or explicitly - by the responsible authorities at the institution where the work was carried out.

All oral presenters, including invited and keynote speakers are asked to submit a manuscript for Acta Horticulturae. If this is not agreed to by the author(s), the work can be presented as a poster instead. Authors of posters are welcome to submit their manuscript for Acta Horticulturae but posters cannot be published as such.

Manuscripts should be as concise as possible in order to reduce to a minimum the number of pages of Acta Horticulturae. As a general rule the maximum recommended length of an invited paper is 16 pages and of a submitted oral or poster paper is 8 pages, including figures and tables. An average page of text will contain about 500 words.
