Aims and Scope
Plant Biotechnology Persa (PBP) is the intersection between medicinal plants and biotechnology. This international journal publishes manuscripts in the fields of medicinal plants, biotechnology, and toxicology. This journal aims to reach all relevant national and international medical institutions and persons in electronic versions free of charge. Plant Biotechnology Persa (PBP) has pursued this aim by publishing editorials, original research articles, reviews, mini-reviews, commentaries, letters to the editor, hypotheses, case reports, meta-analyses, epidemiology and prevention, news, and views. In this journal, particular emphasis is given to research, both experimental and clinical, aimed at the protection/prevention of diseases. A further aim of this journal is to emphasize and strengthen the link between herbalists and pharmacologists, biotechnologies, and toxicologists. In addition, Plants Biotechnology Persa welcomes basic and clinical biomedical as well as pharmaceutical scientific research applied to clinical pharmacology with the attitude of medicinal plants. Contributions in any of these formats are invited for editorial consideration following peer review by at least two experts in the field.
     Plant Biotechnology Persa is an online peer-reviewed international journal to promote all fields of medicinal plants like herbal drugs, bioactive compounds, green chemistry, phytomedicine, phytochemistry, ethno-botany, ethno-pharmacology, ethno-medicine, phyto-pharmacology, pharmacognosy, clinical, pharmacological, pharmacokinetic, and toxicological studies of specified herbal medicinal products, herbal preparations, and purified compounds as well as all aspects of Biotechnology, etc. The journal also publishes papers in the following fields: plant biotechnology, which includes plant genetics, plant biochemistry, plant physiology, and medicinal chemistry; human biotechnology, which covers the fields of nanomaterials, biomedical, toxicology, microbial, genetic, biomaterials, vaccine, and environmental aspects, and the diagnostic field with biotechnological methods; and toxicology, publishing papers related to the toxicological aspects of pharmaceutical substances, biochemical agents and heavy metals.
