From December 4th 2023, Weed Technology will be moving to a Gold Open Access publishing model. All accepted articles from this date will be published with a Creative Commons licence and will be subject to an Article Processing Charge (see the journal’s Open Access Options page for available license options). Many corresponding authors will have their APC covered by a transformative agreement; check here to see if your institution is covered.

Weed Technology publishes original research and scholarship in the form of peer-reviewed articles focused on understanding how weeds are managed.
The journal focuses on:

- Applied aspects concerning the management of weeds in agricultural systems

- Herbicides used to manage undesired vegetation, weed biology and control

- Weed/crop management systems

- Reports of new weed problems

-New technologies for weed management and special articles emphasizing technology transfer to improve weed control

-Articles dealing with plant growth regulators and management of undesired plant growth may also be accepted, provided there is clear relevance to weed science technology, e.g., turfgrass or woody plant management along rights-of-way, vegetation management in forest, aquatic, or other non-crop situations.

-Surveys, education, and extension topics related to weeds will also be considered
