Impact Factor

Aim: To drive forward the field of applied ecology by providing a high-quality evidence base for scientists, managers and policymakers

Journal of Applied Ecology publishes novel, high-impact papers on the interface between ecological science and the management of biological resources. The editors encourage contributions that use applied ecological problems to test and develop basic theory, although there must be clear potential for impact on the management of the environment. The journal accepts papers with a methodological focus where there is a very high potential to contribute to ecosystem management or applied science. The journal includes all major themes in applied ecology, such as conservation biology, global change, environmental pollution, wildlife and habitat management, land use and management, aquatic resources, restoration ecology, and the management of pests, weeds and disease. Articles that interact with related fields are welcomed providing that their relevance to applied ecology is clear.
