Aims & Scope


Acta horticulturae et regiotecturae (AHR) is a peer reviewed, open access, scholarly journal aimed at presenting and disseminating the latest, up-to-date results of scientific research in the fields of landscape engineering, landscape architecture and horticulture within the context of climatic changes and sustainable development. The journal focuses on the publication of original research exploring the ideas and challenges that are central to horticulture and viticulture, nature, environment and landscape protection, management, sustainability, and related fields.

The AHR publishes scientific articles as outputs from research and observations, as well as reviews or reports from workshops and conferences. Papers are published in regular or special (thematic) issues.

The main areas of interest for the journal include:

  • Landscape planning and land consolidation (including GIS)
  • Landscaping and landscape sustainability
  • Environmental monitoring
  • Evaluation and protection of landscape ecological stability and biodiversity
  • Environmental engineering and management of water resources
  • Water and wastewater treatment
  • Erosion control and protection, and soil reclamation
  • Flood protection management
  • Biometeorology and hydrology
  • Climate change impact on landscape and horticulture, adaptation and mitigation
  • Ornamental plants (including trees) maintenance, pests management
