Austin TX, October 26, 2010 - In January 2010, GM Crops launched as the first international peer-reviewed journal of its kind headed by Editor-in-Chief Naglaa A. Abdallah (Cairo University).  The publication is dedicated specifically to transgenic crops, their products, their uses in agriculture and all technical, political and economic issues contingent on their use.


We are pleased to announce that Professor Channapatna S. Prakash (Tuskegee University) and Professor Vivan Moses (King’s College London) have recently agreed to serve as co-editors for this new journal alongside Dr. Abdallah.  In addition to publishing original research, GM Crops will now also publish new features such as Extra Views and GM in the Media.

This is an opportunity to establish an authoritative vehicle encompassing both the scientific and non-scientific aspects of GM crops and their products, as well as issues related to the adoption of the technology around the world.

We strongly encourage the GM crops community to consider favorably submitting your relevant publications to GM Crops. For further details, please consult the Call for Papers at


This is an excellent time for this new journal because of the increasing focus on genetically modified crops and improved agronomic traits from the genetic engineering techniques and applications developed in the 1980s.  GM Crops fills a significant void in today’s scientific literature and serves as an international forum to initiate and facilitate discussion of progress and problems in this most important area of biotechnology.
