Submit Your Manuscript

Join the groundbreaking authors of Conservation Letters today by submitting a manuscript. The journal welcomes current and topical submissions across the biological and social sciences − especially interdisciplinary submissions − that advance pragmatic conservation goals as well as scientific understanding.

Conservation Letters presents cutting-edge advances in the science and practice of conserving biological diversity and promoting human well-being. The journal promotes high-impact, problem-focused studies on globally important, policy-relevant topics that provide conservation practitioners, policy-makers and researchers insights and techniques for better ensuring the persistence of biodiversity. The journal is committed to providing authors a rapid assessment and publication process.

Reviews provide synthetic overviews of emerging subjects that merit urgent attention or succinct syntheses of important topics that are rarely encountered in mainstream literature. Themes should be of global importance, and present findings and conclusions relevant to policy-makers and practitioners in the fields of conservation and human well-being.

Letters detail novel findings of cutting-edge research covering topics of global importance with high relevance for conservation practice and/or policy. The relevance of these studies for decision-making and/or the implementation of conservation initiatives should be clearly identified. Inter- and transdisciplinary studies are particularly sought.

Policy Perspectives are essays for a general audience covering a diversity of topics important to decision-making, planning and implementation of activities related to conservation and human well-being.

Correspondence articles provide readers an opportunity to raise substantive concerns regarding articles previously published in the journal. Correspondence articles should be submitted within six months of the final (Early View) publication of the article receiving comment.

Viewpoint articles are typically invited by the Editor-in-Chief, and offer personal perspectives and insights into topical or emerging issues of broad interest that are potentially important for advancing thinking around and/or improving the effectiveness of policy, practice and research relevant to conservation and human well-being.

Conservation Letters welcomes manuscripts in all biomes (marine, terrestrial, and freshwater), ecosystems, and cultural settings, and will strive for balanced coverage of each. Send us your manuscript!
