Over the past few years, GARNet has kept track of papers (in the <a href="http://blog.garnetcommunity comparaison prix” target=”_blank”>ARR) that are published by UK researchers and feature Arabidopsis work of one sort or other.  When we look back over 2015 we documented 152 different papers featuring UK researchers, even though we probably miss one or two papers along the way.

When we look at the distribution of these papers it is unsurprising that Plant Physiology has the most papers given the size of each months edition. Other usually popular journals also feature toward the top: The Plant Cell, New Phytologist, Plant Journal and PLoS One. It is perhaps surprising that Journal of Experimental Botany (JXB) hasn’t had more Arabidopsis papers from UK researchers but this is likely due to the broader remit of that journal.

Overall approximately 70% of these papers are Open Access which seems to be good news for the communication of research from our Universities. Relatedly, in 2014 GARNet published a broader analysis of Publication Trends for Arabidopsis work that can be found here.
