Aims & Scope

The Open Ecology Journal is an open access online journal. OEJ embraces the trans-disciplinary nature of ecology, seeking to publish original research articles, reviews and guest edited single topic issues representing important scientific progress from all areas of ecology and its linkages to other fields. Contributions may be based on any taxa, natural or artificial environments, spatial scales, temporal scales, and methods that advance this multi-faceted and dynamic science.

The Open Ecology Journal especially welcomes empirical and theoretical studies that promote the construction of a broadly applicable conceptual framework or that present rigorous tests or novel applications of ecological theory.

The Open Ecology Journal provides rapid, thorough peer review of all submissions, with the goal of swift publication of high quality contributions, making them immediately and freely available to researchers worldwide.
