Why we will accept your paper in Biological Conservation?

As the Editor in Chief of Biological Conservation, one of the leading journals of the field, I will outline the major directions of the journal and provide future authors with a tool box to help them with their submission. What is the scope of the journal? Is biological conservation the right target for my paper? What are the key messages to keep in mind when preparing my manuscript for this journal? Is their any specific type of findings that should be promoted or avoided to maximize the probability of having my paper accepted? I thought about these questions both as an author and as an editor and I want to share and discuss this experience of the publication process in conservation.

Linking conservation biology to community assembly processes with hierarchical modelling of species communities Ovaskainen, Otso (Open Science Centre, University of Jyväskylä, 2018)Applications in conservation biology require a profound understanding of community ecology, in particular of the processes that determine the assembly and dynamics of species assemblages at different spatiotemporal scales. ...
Armageddon scribes: only transdisciplinarity will rescue conservation biology from irrelevancy Bradshaw, Corey (Open Science Centre, University of Jyväskylä, 2018)I argue that our discipline is caught in a rut of irrelevancy on the grander scale. Much of our research is focussed on refining the basics of what we essentially already know well. While there will always be processes to ...
Measuring the silent science in conservation biology Papworth, Sarah (Open Science Centre, University of Jyväskylä, 2018)There is increasing interest in measuring the scientific and societal impacts of research. This increasing interest can by demonstrated by the increased weighting of "impact case studies" in the latest UK Research Excellence ...
Conservation Biology is not a single field of science: how to judge citation impact properly Seppänen, Janne-Tuomas (Open Science Centre, University of Jyväskylä, 2018)Conservation Biology is not a single field of science. It is a multitude of very different fields of science. It ranges from continental-scale distribution change simulations using planetary-scale climate data, to understanding ...
