Plant Protection Congress
May 15-18, 2023

IMPPC 2023 Logo




Full text papers will be considered for publication upon peer-review process and published as "Proceedings of the 2nd International Molecular Plant Protection Congress" after the congress is completed. The submission portal for upload of a full text will be activated by April 1, 2023 and terminated by May 1, 2023. If you are planning to submit a full text version, please note that you must still submit an abstract the latest by March 17 "under abstract submission" in order to be in the program. Full texts should be typed using Times New Roman font 12 pt. with numbered lines, in the left-hand margin and double spacing throughout, i.e., also for abstracts, footnotes and references. The pages of the manuscript, including the title page, abstract, references, tables, etc. should be numbered consecutively. Make the width at 3 cm for all margins. All the figures and tables should be embedded in the text. Each figure and table should be referred to in the text. Avoid excessive use of italics to emphasize part of the text.

Full texts should include the following sections:
  • Title (short, specific and informative),
  • Keywords (indexing terms, up to 6 items),
  • Abstract (maximum 300 word),
  • Introduction,
  • Material and Methods,
  • Results and Discussion,
  • Conclusions,
  • Acknowledgements (if needed),
  • Abbreviations and Symbols (if needed),
  • References, Figures and Tables with captions not exceeding 30 pages (with references). All headings and titles should be written in bold.


Acknowledgements should be a brief statement at the end of the text and may include source of financial support. The contract number should be provided.


Cite references in the text as author‘s surname should be followed by the year of the publication in parentheses (Peter 2010; Basunia & Abe 2001). Use et al. after the first author's family name for citations with three or more authors (Lawrence et al. 2001). For citations of the same authors published on the same year, use letters after the year (Dawson 2009a).

References cited in the text should be arranged chronologically. The references should be listed alphabetically based on author's surnames, and chronological per author. Names of journals should be in full titles rather than the abbreviations. Avoid using citations of abstract proceedings. The following examples are for guidance.

Tables and Figures:

Tables and Figures should be numbered consecutively and accompanied by a title above the table or figure. All tables and figures should not exceed 16x20 cm in size. Figures should have a high resolution, minimum 600 dpi in tiff/png format. Avoid using vertical lines in tables.


Do not use figures that duplicate matter in tables. Figures can be supplied in digital format, or photographs and drawings, which are suitable for reproduction. Label each figure number consecutively.


Units of measurement should all be in SI units. Use a period in decimal fractions (1.24 rather than 1,24). Units should have a single space between the number and the unit (4 kg/ha, 20 N m, 100 kPa, 22 °C). The only exceptions are for angular definitions, minutes, seconds, and percentage; do not include a space (10°, 45', 60'', 29%). The abbreviation of litre is "L”.

Formulas and Equations:

Number each formula with the reference number placed in parentheses at the end. Use Word mathematical processor for formulas with 12pt., variances in Italics, numbers and mathematical definitions in plain text. If needed, refer as "Equation 1” in the text (….the model, as given in Equation 1).
