Aims and Scope

Journal of Ecology and Field Biology, an international quarterly journal, is the official journal of the Ecological Society of Korea, and endorsed by the East Asian Federation of Ecological Societies (EAFES). Journal of Ecology and Field Biology publishes peer-reviewed, original research papers, reviews, reports, and comments covering all aspects of ecology and field biology of all kinds of organisms, modeling and theoretical aspects, including the influence of environmental factors on them. The subject and content of review article should be discussed with the Editor prior to submission. The coverage ranges from molecular-level mechanistic studies to investigations at the whole ecosystem (global) scale. Also, the journal publishes articles presenting research across disciplinary and environmental boundaries, including studies examining interactions among geological, microbial, biological, chemical, physical, hydrological, and societal processes. The aim of Journal of Ecology and Field Biology is to provide a forum for the ecologist to address and evaluate ecological issues related to processes and structures at different integration levels (individuals, populations, communities, ecosystems and landscape). The journal bridges fundamental ecology and environmental ecology and spans boundaries of spatial and temporal scale, discipline and perspective.
The journal particularly encourages submission of papers related to ecology in East Asia. Studies that are hypothesis driven and with an experimental approach are especially welcome. Unless papers document important and relatively unknown aspects of field studies of a broad interest, we discourage papers that describe only presence and abundance of biota in local habitats as well as papers that are pure systematic.
