Virtual Issue: Open Access


To coincide with the 5th Annual Open Access Week, the five journals of the British Ecological Society are pleased to publish this virtual issue of open access papers recently published in the Journal of Ecology, Journal of Animal Ecology, Journal of Applied Ecology, Functional Ecology and Methods in Ecology and Evolution.

These open access papers have all been published through the OnlineOpen programme, and as of this week the British Ecological Society is delighted to be able to introduce a 50% discount for Society members wishing to publish their manuscripts through this scheme.
