Students & Early Career Researchers

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

Therefore, an article accepted with a student or ECRs (defined as being within one year of award of their PhD degree) as the first author will 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.
