To all ORAL presenters planning on submitting a paper for the Special Issue with Crop Science for papers from the 12th Triennial African Potato Association Conference:

The associated editors are now registered with Crop Science, and we would like to now request that you directly submit your paper the Crop Science journal: and no longer to the APA website.   If you do not have an account, you will need to create one with Crop Science.  Then the paper will be submitted under your name.


Note that during the submission process, you should use the drop-down menu under the question ‘Is this manuscript part of a special section’ that appears in Step 1 during the manuscript submission process and selected the 12th Triennial APA.  Then the paper will be sent the Technical editor for the issue.

The paper will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers and obviously, will need to meet Crop Science standards to be accepted.  So please do review the guidelines on the website to make sure that your paper is compliant with the required format.

We truly are excited about APA members having this opportunity to contribute to the expansion of body of knowledge on potato and sweetpotato
