Web Ecology An open-access peer-reviewed journal

Aims and scope

Web Ecology (WE) is an open-access journal issued by the European Ecological Federation (EEF) representing the ecological societies within Europe and associated members. Its special value is to serve as a publication forum for national ecological societies that do not maintain their own society journal. Web Ecology also offers the opportunity to publish special issues resulting from conferences or symposiums from ecological societies. Web Ecology publishes papers from all fields of ecology without any geographic restriction. It is a forum to communicate results of experimental, theoretical, and descriptive studies of general interest to an international audience. Original contributions, short communications, and reviews on ecological research on all kinds of organisms and ecosystems are welcome as well as papers that express emerging ideas and concepts with a sound scientific background. Papers must be original and not previously published in another journal. Nevertheless, a re-analysis or a re-interpretation of published data is possible. We also encourage publishing research already reported within master or PhD theses or research published in the so-called "grey literature". However, we do not reprint such theses or reports. They always require considerable shortening and editing to meet the standards of international publications in ecology.
