COVID-19 and impact on peer review

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Aims and scope

Journal of Ecology and Environment is an open access and online journal dedicated to sharing outcomes of basic ecological research, and implications or applications based on ecological research. The journal mainly focuses on basic ecological research on terrestrial and aquatic populations, communities, ecosystems and landscapes. Also, its scope includes applied issues such as biodiversity loss and climate change based on ecological research.

We are committed to represent ecological research from under-represented regions such as Eurasian ecosystems, especially Northeast Asian ecosystems. Journal of Ecology and Environment strives for prompt dissemination of research outcomes and their implications to readers, through continuous online publication and an open access policy.

This journal was supported by the Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies Grant funded by the Korean Government (Ministry of Education).
