Aims and Scope

Environmental Conservation is one of the longest-standing and most authoritative international journals on the environment, addressing policy and practice as well as the natural and social science of environmental concerns at a global level. While maintaining a foundation in underlying research it aims to cover all aspects of the field. These include social and economic issues, resource and habitat management, changes in ecosystem structures and processes, terrestrial and aquatic biomes. The journal includes comments, subject reviews, research papers and book reviews on all relevant aspects of the field. Environmental Conservation is essential reading not only for scientists but also for environmentalists, environmental managers and consultants, and environmental NGO and agency workers wishing to keep abreast of current developments in environmental science.

Environmental Conservation is a quarterly journal which welcomes material relevant to scientifically based management of the Earth's environment in the following formats. Word counts include references and legends:

  • Subject reviews (normally <10 000 words)

  • Research papers (up to 8 000 words)

  • Reports (<4000)

  • Comments (<1500 words)

The main criteria for acceptance of subject reviews and research papers are originality, scientific rigour, comprehensiveness, appeal to a wide readership, and acceptability of style. Manuscripts will be stringently refereed and actively edited where necessary.

Any material supplementary to published manuscripts can be found at the links at the bottom of the page.

Further details for the preparation and submission of manuscripts can be obtained from the Cambridge University Press website. Any further queries concerning publication should be addressed to the Editor at the address below.
