New Disease Reports is a peer-reviewed, international, open-access electronic journal, published by the British Society for Plant Pathology. It aims to provide a vehicle for rapid on-line publication of new and significant plant disease outbreaks caused by fungi, bacteria, nematodes, phytoplasmas, viruses, and viroids. For more details of the scope of New Disease Reports, see Author Info. For details of the submission process, see Submission.
New Disease Reports was first started in 2000. Reports submitted prior to 2010 were also formally published (in print and online, without images) in the BSPP's journal Plant Pathology. Since 2010 New Disease Reports has become a stand-alone on-line journal in its own right (ISSN No. 2044-0588). To enhance the value of the reports, the BSPP is a member of CrossRef and will issue DOIs for all reports submitted since 01 Jan 2010.
