About Conservation


Conservation (ISSN 2673-7159) is an internationally peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary scholarly and electronically open access journal, aiming at providing an advanced forum for both empirical and theoretical research with significant implications for conservation in both natural and social sciences. We are devoted to disseminating the research of practitioners and scholars to all the intended audiences, further contributing to the biological, sociological, ethical, economic and other transdisciplinary dimensions of conservation and exploring the multiple linkages between human society and nature. Conservation publishes original scientific research articles, comprehensive reviews, communications, commentaries, perspectives and opinions in English, with no restriction on the maximum length of the papers.

Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research that advances conservation practices as well as scientific understandings in as much detail as possible. For theory papers, full details of proof must be provided so that results can be checked. For experimental papers, full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Additionally, electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculations, experimental procedure, etc., can be uploaded along with the publication as 'Supplementary Material'.
