The Journal Asian Journal of Plant Science and Research (AJPSKY) covers and gives a stage to scholars wherever all through the world for the appropriation of sensible assessment revelations in the Plant Science field. The journal is a buddy examined, open access, online journal, disperses one of a kind investigation papers, and study articles in all pieces of plant science. The essential purpose of this journal is to give a phase to botanists, experts, specialists, scientists, and academicians to convey their assessment work and update the progressing propels.

Close by Ethnobiology Asian Journal of Plant Science and Research in like manner covers a wide extent of focuses having a spot with degrees of progress and concentrated importance in the fields of Agronomy (Grains, Forages, Industrial and Alternative Crops), Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Biophysics, Biotechnology, Cell science, Cellular and Developmental Biology, Ecology (checking Development, Growth Regulation), Entomology, Evolutionary Biology, Genetics and Genomics, Horticulture (natural items, vegetables, ornamentals), Microbiology, Molecular science, Morphology, Nutrition, Pathogen Resistance, Pest Management (Entomology, Plant Pathology, Weed Science), Photosynthesis, Phylogeny, Phylogeography, Physiology, Phytochemistry, Plant Breeding, Plant Genetics, Plant Pathology, Plant Production Systems, Population innate characteristics, Signal Transduction, Stress Physiology, Symbiosis (especially Mycorrhizae and Rhizobia), Systems Biology, Taxonomy, Water Relations and Gas exchange, Weed Science and all other related areas.

Along with all the above mentioned topics it also encourages and provides a platform for ethnobiology. Coming to ethnobiology, ethnobiology is an interdisciplinary field of study that draws on approaches and methods from both the social and normal sciences. "Ethnobiology" has shown a genuinely inconvenient term to describe since the degree of ethnobiological analyzes has changed broadly from the earliest starting point of time. One of its later definitions implies the examination of the correlative associations between human social orders and the standard world. Equivalent associations here suggest the human impression of the natural condition, which will finally affect man's lead, while human direct subsequently impacts – or shapes – the common condition. This wide significance of ethnobiology encompasses ethnotaxonomy (examination of the request norms of animals, plants, soils, and natural frameworks as demonstrated by close by society), ethnomedicine (examination of the social thoughts of prosperity, sickness and affliction, and of the possibility of neighborhood recovering systems), ethnoecology (examination of customary regular data and of anthropogenic ramifications for the earth), ethnoagronomy (examination of means economies and resource the board), and material culture (examination of natural resources used in craftsmanship and advancement). Ethnobiology targets investigating socially based natural and environmental data, social acknowledgment and perception of the ordinary world, and related practices and practices.

Ethnomedicine is stressed over the social understandings of prosperity, infirmity, and disorder and besides addresses the human administrations searching for system and recovering practices. In both ethnobiology and ethnomedicine, the documentation of the aftereffects of explicit practices and practices is through social and natural authority trademark for the fields of human sciences and science/medicine.
