About AER

Preserve. Share. Discover.

Applied Ecology Resources (AER) is a novel information repository. AER makes preserving, sharing and discovering information on the management of biodiversity and the environment easier for everyone in the ecological community.

AER promotes evidence-based decision-making by curating a wide range of information sources such as open access journal articles, research summaries and other grey literature.

AER will be free for everyone to read and browse all content. Organisations will be able to upload and share their reports with a broad international audience by becoming a member of AER.

At the heart of AER is a new peer-reviewed open access journal, Ecological Solutions and Evidence. The journal will publish articles with direct relevance for the management of biological resources and ecological systems and will form part of the freely accessible resource available on AER. Visit the website for full details including author guidelines, the Editorial Board and the journal’s first Editorial.

AER is supported by the Advisory Board who provide advice on strategic development and contribute to decision-making.

The current AER website is a beta version showcasing the platform upon which the fully searchable database will be developed. The site will undergo continued updates over the next few months until the full website launch later in 2020. Follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn for updates or subscribe to our eBulletin below.
