Web Ecology is an open access peer-reviewed electronic journal. Please visit the Web Ecology website to read articles free of charge.

Call for papers

Web Ecology (WE) is an Open Access Journal issued by the European Ecological Federation (EEF) representing the Ecological Societies within Europe and associated members. Web Ecology publishes papers from all fields of ecology. It is a forum to communicate results of experimental, theoretical as well as descriptive studies of general interest to an international audience. Original contributions as well as short communications or reviews on ecological research on all kinds of organisms and ecosystems are welcome as well as papers that express emerging ideas and concepts with a sound scientific background. Papers must be original and not previously published in another journal. Nevertheless, a re-analysis or a re-interpretation of published data is possible.

We also encourage to publish research already reported within master or PhD theses or research published in the so-called “grey literature”. However, we do not reprint such theses or reports. They always require considerable shortening and editing before to meet the standards of international publications in ecology.

Web Ecology

Web Ecology is published in co-operation with Copernicus Publications.

*Article processing charges are currently waived*

"Your average citations-received per paper should be independent of your discipline. But your highly-cited papers will be really really highly cited in a popular field, and ignored in an empty field. The tails of the distribution matter" @EcoEvoEvoEco
