Announcement: Launch of BMC Ecology and Evolution

We are pleased to announce that BMC  Ecology and BMC Evolutionary Biology has now been merged into  one journal and re-launched as BMC Ecology and Evolution.  As a result BMC Ecology is no longer open to new submissions and will not publish any new articles. The scope of BMC Evolutionary Biology has now been expanded to include ecology submissions and authors in this field are encouraged to submit to this journal.

Call for papers: Eco-evo-devo

The Editors of BMC Developmental Biology and  BMC Ecology and Evolution  welcome submissions to the cross-journal special issue on eco-evo-devo, the effect of the environment of development and evolution. Please click the above link for further information and to submit to the collection.

The special issue is open for submissions.





Articles

  1. Authors: Ricardo Betancur-R, Edward O. Wiley, Gloria Arratia, Arturo Acero, Nicolas Bailly, Masaki Miya, Guillaume Lecointre and Guillermo Ortí

    Content type: Research article

BMC Series Focus Issue

January: Data sharing

Research data are the foundations of reliable and reproducible science. This month, we would like to highlight different ways authors were able to publish and share their data by choosing the BMC series

Aims and scope

BMC Ecology and Evolution is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on all aspects of evolution and ecology, including, but not limited to, molecular and non-molecular evolution, population genetics and phylogenetics, conservation genetics, palaeontology, behavioral and population ecology, macroecology, ecological and evolutionary developmental biology and biodiversity (including environmental DNA)

Editor

Alison Cuff, BioMed Central

Assistant Editor

Alexandria Latto, BioMed Central



Submitting a phylogenetic study?

For authors considering submitting research involving phylogenetic analysis, please consult our editorial for guidance on the methodologies we consider to be of a suitable standard for consideration in BMC Evolutionary Biology.

Data support service

Authors submitting to this journal can opt to use a new service that will make it easier to share research data.

  • As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
