Willdenowia is an international peer-reviewed journal publishing original research articles in English from the entire fields of plant, algal and fungal systematics, covering the evolution, taxonomy and nomenclature of these organisms as well as related fields such as floristics and plant geography. Articles on phylogeny and molecular systematics are especially welcome. Descriptions of new taxa will generally not be considered unless they are part of the results of a phylogenetic study or revision of a larger group, and that study or revision is the main focus of the manuscript. Manuscripts focused on nomenclature and typifications, checklists and new floristic records are also generally not considered (excluding contributions to the Euro+Med-Checklist Notulae). Authors are encouraged to deposit duplicates of their material in the Berlin herbarium (B).
Three issues appear each year, in April, August and December, in an open-access online edition and a print edition. Individual articles are normally published first in an issue in progress in the online edition.

The precursor of Willdenowia was founded in 1895 as Notizblatt des Königlichen Botanischen Gartens und Museums zu Berlin to publish information about the institution's collections and activities, and research contributions from its staff and associated botanists. In 1919 renamed as Notizblatt des Botanischen Gartens und Museums zu Berlin-Dahlem it was discontinued in 1944, after the fatal destruction of much of the institution's collections and facilities in World War II. In 1953 it was revived, initially as Mitteilungen aus dem botanischen Garten und Museum Berlin-Dahlem, and continued with its present title commemorating Carl Ludwig Willdenow (1765-1812), director of the Botanic Garden and first professor of botany in Berlin.
