Announcing the launch of In Review

BMC Ecology, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received 

Featured blog: Culled foxes are dead, but not gone: No evidence for lowered predation risk after uncoordinated fox culls.

The culling of mammalian mesopredators is often justified by alleged conservation benefits for a target prey species.  Here, in the journals latest blog post, Kämmerle explains how himself and colleagues demonstrated that uncoordinated culls may often fail to achieve such benefits, despite a subjectively high culling effort. 



BMC Ecology now accepts Registered Reports

From August 24th, BMC Ecology will begin accepting a new type of article: Registered Reports. BMC Ecology is the first ecology journal to consider this innovative article format; please read our blog where we discuss what benefits we believe it can offer to ecologists.
