A Note to Authors:

The Arab Journal of Plant Protection (AJPP) is published by the Arab Society for Plant Protection since 1983. It was published as hard copy twice per year (June and December) from 1983 until 2012. Starting in 2013, AJPP is published only electronically three times per year, in April, August and December. The journal covers all disciplines related to plant protection. Submitting an article to AJPP means that the author did not submit the same manuscript to any other scientific journal in any language.

The ethical aspect of publishing is extremely important to insure the continuous participation of scientists in the region and globally. Unfortunately, the peer-review process does not always permit to uncover acts of plagiarism and academic misconduct. Therefore, a mechanism for early detection of plagiarism is being worked out. When detected, the redundant manuscript is withdrawn from the publication process and actions are taken to inform both authors and their respective institutions. Authors are encouraged to abide with international scientific research ethics code of conduct.
