Special Issue of Animal Conservation

The 2023 International Conservation Translocation Conference is partnering with Animal Conservation to produce a special issue of the journal, featuring research presented at the conference.

In addition to inviting abstract submissions for papers to be presented at the conference, we also wish to invite submitting authors to nominate their abstracts to be assessed for inclusion as full research papers in the special issue. This represents an excellent opportunity for conservation translocation scientists from around the world to showcase their research in a highly regarded international journal, in a special issue focused on this important facet of conservation biology.

The central theme of Animal Conservation is to publish important new ideas of broad interest and with findings that advance the scientific basis of conservation. Submissions for the special issue should be novel and have scope for wider implications beyond the study species. Research involving cross-disciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged.

Please note, while the scope of Animal Conservation is usually limited to publications involving research on animals, for the conference special issue submissions relating plants will be also considered and are encouraged.

All manuscript submissions to the special issue will be assessed by Animal Conservation editors and, if within our scope, will be subjected to peer review that will guide the publication decision.
