New Disease Reports

Started in 2000, New Disease Reports is an international, open-access online journal of the British Society for Plant Pathology.


The main objectives of New Disease Reports are (i) to provide a mechanism for rapid on-line reporting of outbreaks of plant pathogens on a global scale, (ii) to provide a repository for observations of the sort important to diagnosticians, field advisers, researchers and plant health policy makers; and (iii) to encourage succinct condensed reporting of disease observations.

New Disease Reports welcomes submissions on all types of plant pathogens including:
