Invitation to free-of-charge publication in Legume Science for young scientists

Legume Science would like to invite manuscripts (research or review papers) from PhD level graduate students or postdoctoral fellows (graduated in the last 3 years), who are working in the area of pre- or post-harvest science and technology of legumes (breeding, genetics, agronomy, physiology, processing, packaging, chemistry, nutrition, starch/protein isolation, industrial applications, biofuels and many more) for submission to the journal. Ten manuscripts will be selected for the competition, and those papers will be published in the open-access journal free of charge (with Publication Fee of USD 2,800 waived). All accepted papers will be published in a special issue for the competitively selected manuscripts.

A certificate of distinction will also be issued by Legume Science. It definitely boosts young scientists’ early career with a huge impact on the global readership, who can access your manuscript freely after acceptance. The manuscript would further increase authors’ citation record.

The procedure for submission is described in the following link:
