Aims and Interess areas
This Journal aim to publish technical and scientific researches in floriculture, ornamental plants, landscaping and landscapes from members of this Society and others.


The "Brazilian Journal of Ornamental Horticulture" was created by the Brazilian Society of Ornamental Horticulture in 1995 with the purpose of disseminating the scientific and technical works developed by the members, as well as other researchers, establishing a strong connection between research and productive sector. The first Editor-in-chief was Dr. Taís Tostes Graziano (1195 - 2003); in the sequence was led by Dr. Antônio Fernando Tombolato (2004-2010), who in 2005, in an innovative action, adopted the online submission and processing of the works and in parallel the journal was published on CD (2005-2014). In 2011, Dr. Gláucia Moraes Dias took over the Editor-in-chief, and in 2014 the journal changed its name to "ORNAMENTAL HORTICULTURE" in order to increase its insertion and make a scientific publication of worldwide scope. Since its inception, the publication has been uninterrupted. Initially, the publication was made in two annual numbers (1995- 2014), going from the four-monthly period from 2015 to 2016 and quarterly from 2017. The articles could initially be published in Portuguese, Spanish or English, and since 2017, only articles in English are published. The changes over the years reflect not only a need to adapt to the technical and scientific requirements of publications of this kind, but also the seriousness shown by the work of a group prepared to solidify this magazine, whose specificity is unique in our country. Therefore, we hope Ornamental Horticulture (OH) will continue to contribute to the development of Ornamental Horticulture and Landscaping, transforming itself whenever necessary, while maintaining the same scientific seriousness that has characterized it since its inception.
