It was established in Lviv in 2011 and firstly issued in early 2012 by enthusiastic botanist Dr. Andrew V. Novikoff (Andriy V. Novikov).

Modern Phytomorphology has a hybrid continuous publishing model, which means that papers are publishing on-line as soon as they are processed, while the hard version of full volume is printed just once per year and includes all papers of the current year. On-line papers are not “early view papers” or “pre-prints”, but final versions which include continuous page numeration of current volume. The date of first appear on-line is considered as a date of first publishing, which is also indicated in the paper.
Modern Phytomorphology publishes original research articles, reviews and short reports covering experimental and field plant biology. Modern Phytomorphology is especially focused on anatomical, morphological, physiological and related taxonomical investigations of plants and fungi in a wide sense. But it also accepts research results from other fields of botany, e.g. phytogeography, vegetation, and phytosozology. Some, but not all of journal issues are closely related to the International conference on plant morphology and include both full-text articles and short abstracts or communications represented on these conferences. Journal prefers manuscripts written in English.
