The British Ecological Society (BES), in partnership with its publisher John Wiley & Sons, has announced the launch of a new international journal, Ecological Solutions and Evidence. The open access journal will publish articles with direct relevance for the management of biological resources and ecological systems.
The journal will be led by Marc Cadotte, Professor at the Departments of Biological Sciences, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Toronto, Canada. Cadotte will work closely with Lead Editor Holly Jones, Associate Professor of Conservation Biology and Restoration Ecology at Northern Illinois University, along with an expert board of Associate Editors consisting of both applied researchers working in academia and practitioners in a range of roles including consultants, NGOs and government agencies.
Recognising that a range of information sources other than journal articles are commonly used to inform on-the-ground management design and implementation, Ecological Solutions and Evidence is at the centre of a new online repository which will be launched by the BES in 2020, Applied Ecology Resources, designed to facilitate information exchange for anyone involved in the management or monitoring of natural systems.
To facilitate dialogue between practitioners and academics, Ecological Solutions and Evidence will publish short-form “From Practice” articles with a flexible format to communicate information important to applied management and data articles to give additional value to data collected from applied projects, in addition to more traditional research articles and reviews.
Available exclusively online, Ecological Solutions and Evidence will be published in partnership with John Wiley & Sons, alongside five established journals from the BES, namely: Journal of Ecology, Journal of Applied Ecology, Methods in Ecology and Evolution, Functional Ecology, and Journal of Animal Ecology, and People and Nature.
