Message from Editor-in-Chief

It is my great pleasure to announce the launch of the Journal of Cotton Research, a brand-new peer-reviewed journal dedicated to cotton science.

This journal was set out to serve the academic community, public and private research organizations, and all interested parties (seed companies, traders, textile manufacturers, etc.). The Journal of Cotton Research aims to become a multidisciplinary forum, which covers all aspects of cotton science from field to consumer. Authors are most welcome to share with us the cutting edge updates in their profound research. We look forward to new ideas, concepts, and methods, which shall ultimately contribute to global progress for cotton industry.

Cotton, as the most important natural fiber crop across continents, research around it has been steady over centuries and branching out to various topics, benefiting from new discovery and technologies of other disciplinary. In this context, we launch the Journal of Cotton Research, hoping to not only cover the basic topics of cotton biology, but also, and more importantly, inspire novel researches that will promote multidisciplinary development of cotton science and technology.

With the commitment of our dedicated editorial team and board, I am confident that Journal of Cotton Research will serve well to the research community and make an impact.
