Wetlands, the journal of the Society of Wetland Scientists, has announced the expansion of the themed categories under which it will publish papers in the field of wetland science. These essentially are continuous series, open to submissions at any time, which will be recognized by a banner across the top of each article. This serves to highlight the breadth of the topics Wetlands will consider for publication and a focus for researchers and managers.
From now there will be also a theme devoted to articles on Ramsar Convention.
The categories are:
General – Any papers that do not fit the categories below
Mark Brinson Reviews – Limited submissions, see info at WETLANDS web pages
Wetlands in the Developing World – Any papers about wetlands in the developing world
Applied Wetland Science – How is our scientific knowledge translated into practice?
