Journal of the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria and Switzerland (Gesellschaft für Ökologie)Basic and Applied Ecology provides a forum in which ecological advances and ideas can be rapidly communicated to a wide audience. Basic and Applied Ecology publishes Reviews, Perspectives and Original Contributions from all areas of ecology, complemented by Invited Views, Comments and Special Issues. Ecologists from all countries are invited to publish ecological research of general ecological and international interest on its pages, as there is no bias with regard to taxon or geographical area. Papers in Basic and Applied Ecology include topical research in areas such as biodiversity and associated functions and services, response to global change across latitudes as well as multitrophic interactions. New project designs and methods are also welcome. The main research areas covered by Basic and Applied Ecology are Conservation Ecology, Applied Ecology, Community and Population Ecology, Landscape and Ecosystem Ecology, and Functional Ecology, but contributions from other fields will also be considered. Basic and Applied Ecology actively solicits papers that strive to integrate the various disciplines and issues within the broad field of ecology. Basic and Applied Ecology published its first volumes in 2000 and is the official journal of the "Gesellschaft fur Okologie", the Ecological Society of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

Behavioural Brain Research

  • ISSN: 0166-4328
  • 5 Year impact factor: 3
  • Impact factor: 2.7
Behavioural Brain Research is an international, interdisciplinary journal dedicated to the publication of articles in the field of behavioural neuroscience, broadly defined. Contributions from the entire range of disciplines that comprise the neurosciences, behavioural sciences or cognitive sciences are appropriate, as long as the goal is to delineate the neural mechanisms underlying behaviour. Thus, studies may range from neurophysiological, neuroanatomical, neurochemical or neuropharmacological analysis of brain-behaviour relations, including the use of molecular genetic or behavioural genetic approaches, to studies that involve the use of brain imaging techniques, to neuroethological studies. The journal considers research in a wide variety of species including invertebrates, vertebrates, and humans. Reports of original research, of major methodological advances, or of novel conceptual approaches are all encouraged. Behavioural Brain Research also considers critical reviews and meta-analyses.Benefits to authors We provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs, a liberal copyright policy, special discounts on Elsevier publications and much more.

Behavioural Processes

  • ISSN: 0376-6357
  • 5 Year impact factor: 1.9
  • Impact factor: 1.3
Behavioural Processes is dedicated to the publication of high-quality original research on animal behaviour from any theoretical perspective. It welcomes contributions that consider animal behaviour from behavioural analytic, cognitive, ethological, ecological and evolutionary points of view. This list is not intended to be exhaustive, and papers that integrate theory and methodology across disciplines are particularly welcome.The quality of research and focus on behavioural processes are the sole criteria for acceptance. Behavioural Processes considers both papers investigating basic behavioural phenomena and behavioural studies of more applied significance. Papers reporting solely on human behaviour may be considered for publication if they relate closely to non-human research within the journal's remit. Authors of papers reporting research on human subjects are invited to contact the editors for advice prior to submission, as they are for papers of all kinds.Behavioural Processes publishes three categories of paper. First, regular Research Papers presenting the results of original experiments or outlining novel theoretical positions. Second, Reviews which summarize the state of knowledge in an area of animal behavioural research. Third, Short Reports which are short communications reporting the outcome of a single experiment in no more than 2000 words and a total of two tables or figures.
