Students & Early Career Researchers

The completion of a PhD thesis often provides an excellent opportunity to publish your results, review a key topic, provide new perspectives, or develop new methodology. Biodiversity and Conservation encourages students and early career researchers (ECRs) to publish one of these article types.

Therefore, as a student or ECR (defined as being within one year of award of your PhD degree) listed as the first author of any article type accepted, you receive:

1) a voucher for free access to any Springer publication in eBook form (up to a maximum value of 250 Euros/US dollars, and maximum one per year) in perpetuity

2) article made freely accessible for 8 weeks after online first publication

Please see our submission guidelines for details.
