Publicaţii

Journal: FRUIT GROWING RESEARCH

It is an international journal, which has been issued under the care of the Research Institute for Fruit Growing Pitesti, Romania. Fruit growing research is an annual journal aimed at disseminating significant research and original papers on genetic resources, breeding of deciduous fruit trees species; fruit sustainable technologies – environment protection;  propagation, virology and tissue culture, that can be of interest to a wide audience of plant scientists in all areas of fruit growing. An international Editorial Board advises the journal.
Since 1968, from the first appearance of the journal, it had a high scientifically level. The results of very important researchers in the fruit growing field from Romania and also from many European countries and worldwide were published in this journal.

The present name of the journal - FRUIT GROWING RESEARCH (ISSN 2286 – 0304,  ISSN–L 2286 – 0304) starts in 2012 at once with the volume XXVIII. Until 2011 the journal was known as SCIENTIFIC PAPERS OF THE RESEARCH INSTITUTE FOR FRUIT GROWING PITESTI, ROMANIA (ISSN 1584-2231).

Approaching a wide area of scientific topics, the Journal has contributed to improved specialist research in the fields of fruit growing and technology transfer to agricultural units, developing scientific investigation and partnerships which have resulted in favorable effects upon the teaching process. Since 2005, the Journal has undergone significant change both in form and content, as it has allowed teaching staff and researchers, PhD, as well as service product specialists to promote and confer greater value upon the results of their scientific creation in the fields of fruit growing with a particular focus on extremely actual issues, both in Europe and worldwide: rational agricultural land use, soil conservation, sustainable fruit growing, alternative farming systems, modern and best fruit crop technologies employed by agricultural units to increase economic efficiency and the quality of life, including by environmental protection and biodiversity conservation.
The members of the Editorial Board and scientific reviewers, distinguished personalities in the field of expertise, have brought their contribution to the continuous improvement of the scientific quality in the published materials.
FRUIT GROWING RESEARCH is highly appreciated in Romania, Europe and worldwide, as it has been is requested and distributed in over 30 institutions.

FRUIT GROWING RESEARCH is defined as an open access journal that uses a funding model that does not charge readers or their institutions for access. By 'open access' this journal, we mean its free availability on the public internet, permitting any users to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of these articles, crawl them for indexing, pass them as data to software, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without financial, legal, or technical barriers other than those inseparable from gaining access to the internet itself. The only constraint on reproduction and distribution, and the only role for copyright in this domain, should be to give authors control over the integrity of their work and the right to be properly acknowledged and cited.
