Hop and Medicinal Plants was founded in 1993 as the journal of “The Hop and Medicinal Plants Research Center” of the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine Cluj-Napoca. Until 2008, the journal published articles in Romanian, with an abstract in English. Starting with year 2008, to increase the international visibility, all articles were published in English. For providing the rigors of a modern scientific journal, the scientific value of articles has been warranted by the competence of the editorial board.
