About European Journal of Wildlife Research

European Journal of Wildlife Research focuses on all aspects of wildlife biology. Main areas are: applied wildlife ecology; diseases affecting wildlife population dynamics, conservation, economy or public health; ecotoxicology; management for conservation, hunting or pest control; population genetics; and the sustainable use of wildlife as a natural resource. Contributions to socio-cultural aspects of human-wildlife relationships and to the history and sociology of hunting will also be considered.

The journal accepts four types of papers: Reviews, Original Articles, Short Communications, and Methods Papers. Reviews on current wildlife topics, meta-analyses and papers describing or applying cutting-edge methods in wildlife research are particularly welcome.

The Chief Editor is Christian Gortázar, IREC, Ciudad Real, Spain.

Announcing Continuous Article Publishing

As of 2017, European Journal of Wildlife Research has changed its publication structure from paginated issues to a consecutive publishing model: Continuous Article Publishing.

This means that papers are published in a volume/issue immediately after acceptance. The Online First queue has become obsolete and the time from submission to publication in an issue is now significantly shorter. Continuous Article Publishing gives articles full citation details instantly after online publication.

As a further aspect of the new system, articles are no longer paginated sequentially by issue. Therefore, every article starts with page number 1. Page numbers are not used for article citation but every article has a citation ID number, called the ArticleCitationID. The ArticleCitationID is replacing the page numbers in the citation line, which includes the journal citation title, year, volume number and ArticleCitationID now .

Example:
Old: Eur J Wildl Res (2016) 62:377-393
New: Eur J Wildl Res (2017) 63: 123

This method of citation is accepted by the Web of Science/Journal Citation Reports (ISI).

We feel that our authors and readers greatly benefit from this change in the publication structure of European Journal of Wildlife Research.
