The American Society for Horticultural Science (ASHS) publishes three scientific journals, HortScience, The Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science and HortTechnology. Free access to these journals and papers has been limited to ASHS members. Authors have always been allowed to share a paper upon request. For non-members, paid access to individual papers was considered steep so most industry people asked one of us to access and share the paper. Well, I never thought I would be able to share this good news. As of January 1, 2019, HortTechnology became available as an online-only, open-access journal. As of January 1, 2020, the Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science and HortScience also moved to open access journals.
After decades of growers and field reps asking me and others at WSU to source a paper from these journals we can now say get them yourself! On several important levels, the democratization of scientific information and results that industry members and taxpayers financially support is a win-win deal and a move in the right direction.

HortScience is a monthly journal of interest to a broad array of horticultural scientists and others interested in horticulture. Its goals are to provide information on significant research, education, extension findings and methods, and developments and trends that affect the profession.
The Journal of the American Society for Horticultural Science is a bimonthly publication featuring fundamental research. This publication includes detailed reports of original research results on various aspects of horticultural science and directly related subjects including: Biotechnology, Developmental Physiology, Environmental Stress Physiology, Genetics and Breeding, Statistics and more. HortTechnology is also bimonthly and includes reliable, current, peer-reviewed technical information to help solve problems and deal with current challenges in production, education, and extension.
