We are pleased to announce a new partnership between the British Ecological Society (BES) and Ecology and Evolution. This latest partnership brings the number of high profile journals supporting the open access title to 16. Eleven of these partner titles are ranked in the top 20 ecology journals by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI). BES journals will join other high impact titles in offering authors a rapid manuscript transferal system which maintains the integrity of peer review and allows authors to meet the requirements of their funders.
Ecology and Evolution is also expanding its editorial expertise with the appointment of new editor Dr Andrew Beckerman, from the University of Sheffield, UK, who joins Allen Moore, from the University of Georgia, USA, in leading the journal. Dr Beckerman is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences. His research links genetics, behaviour and life history to the distribution and abundance of organisms and the structure and dynamics of communities. Andrew has previously served as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Animal Ecology and Ecology Letters.
And finally, we are delighted that the journal has been accepted for indexing by the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) in Current Contents/Agriculture, Biology & Environmental Sciences, the Journal Citation Report, and Science Citation Index Expanded with coverage to begin from volume 1 issue 1. Ecology and Evolution should receive its first Impact Factor in 2013. We are delighted with this result as it reflects the growth and increased visibility of the journal in its field and the hard work and support given by our Editorial Board and in-house staff. We are also very grateful to the large number of scientists who have supported the journal by publishing in it since September 2011.

|Editor-in-Chief: Allen Moore has recently given an interview for Wiley-Blackwell's Publishing News: "[Authors] have responded with enthusiasm. They like the speed, the freedom to express their opinions (as long as it is clearly identified as an opinion where others may differ), and the space. I’ve never worked on a journal that got so many positive e-mails from authors." To read about his insights into the editorial role, the peer review process and Open Access read his full interview.|
