Centralizes the publication of pioneering wetlands work across a range of disciplines, from biology to management to regulation

  • Produced by the world’s leading wetlands society
  • Refereed articles from leading authors in wetlands science
  • A central forum for pioneering wetlands research
  • Explores all facets of wetlands biology, ecology, hydrology, water chemistry, soil and sediment characteristics
  • Coverage extends to management, legal and regulatory topics
  • 92% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

Wetlands is an international journal concerned with all aspects of wetlands biology, ecology, hydrology, water chemistry, soil and sediment characteristics, management, and laws and regulations. The journal is published 6 times per year, with the goal of centralizing the publication of pioneering wetlands work that has otherwise been spread among a myriad of journals. Because wetlands research crosses a range of disciplines, the journal is not restricted to specific subjects but presents manuscripts reporting research results from all relevant disciplines. This broad scope goes beyond the sciences to include articles focusing on management topics and regulatory considerations. Wetlands offers only the highest quality peer-reviewed material.

Mark Brinson Reviews
The Mark Brinson Review series was initiated in 2013 and aims to bring together in-depth, over-arching reviews in the fields of wetland science and management, in the widest sense of those terms. These reviews may synthesize observations over long periods of time or may pull together information from various studies to form an opinion. They are either invited, may be regular reviews that are recognized by the Editorial Board of the journal as important enough to be part of the series, or intending authors may contact the Editor-in-Chief. For an example, see the first Mark Brinson Review by Darold P. Batzer, titled ‘The Seemingly Intractable Ecological Responses of Invertebrates in North American Wetlands: A Review’, published in the February 2013 issue of WETLANDS, February 2013, Volume 33, Issue 1, pp 1-15.

Wetlands in the Developing World 
Authors are invited to submit regular research articles, short communications and review papers on research and management to WETLANDS under the specific ‘article type’ of ‘Wetlands in the Developing World’. The aim of this series is to highlight wetlands research from the developing world. The ‘developing world’ here is defined as those countries recognized as such by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), see http://www.sws.org/Membership/developing-countries.html.
Once accepted for publication, these papers will appear in a continuous series on Wetlands in the Developing World, recognizable by a banner with that title. For further information about this series, please feel free to contact the Editor in Chief, Marinus L. Otte. 

Applied Wetland Science
Authors are invited to submit regular research articles, short communications and review papers on research and management to WETLANDS under the specific ‘article type’ of ‘Applied Wetland Science’. The aim of this series is to highlight wetlands research by and for managers and practitioners. Examples of such research include assessments of success of wetland creation, restoration, conservation, and management. Once accepted for publication, these papers will appear in a continuous series on Applied Wetland Science, recognizable by a banner with that title. For further information about this series, please feel free to contact the Editor in Chief, Marinus L. Otte.

Socio-economic Aspects of Wetlands
Authors are invited to submit regular research articles, short communications and review papers on research and management to WETLANDS under the specific ‘Socioeconomic Aspects of Wetlands’. The aim of this series is to highlight wetlands research related to wetlands in the context of sociology and economy.  Such studies are particularly relevant in light of continuing urbanization. Examples of such research include the social and economic values of wetlands to indigenous people/society, value of preserving/managing one type of wetland over another, or the need for a globally unified regulatory framework. Once accepted for publication, these papers will appear in a continuous series on Socioeconomic Aspects of Wetlands, recognizable by a banner with that title. For further information about this series, please feel free to contact the Editor in Chief, Marinus L. Otte.

    Wetlands is an international journal concerned with all aspects of wetlands biology, ecology, hydrology, water chemistry, soil and sediment characteristics, management, and laws and regulations. The journal is published 6 times per year, with the goal of centralizing the publication of pioneering wetlands work that has otherwise been spread among a myriad of journals. Since wetlands research usually requires an interdisciplinary approach, the journal in not limited to specific disciplines but seeks manuscripts reporting research results from all relevant disciplines. Manuscripts focusing on management topics and regulatory considerations relevant to wetlands are also suitable. Submissions may be in the form of articles or short notes. Timely review articles will also be considered, but the subject and content should be discussed with the Editor-in-Chief (NDSU.wetlands.editor@ndsu.edu) prior to submission. All papers published in Wetlands are reviewed by two qualified peers, an Associate Editor, and the Editor-in-Chief prior to acceptance and publication. All papers must present new information, must be factual and original, and must not have been published elsewhere.
