The first edition of eco.mont will be published in June 2009.
The journal was funded as an initiative of the Alpine Network of Protected Areas (ALPARC), the International Scientific Committee on Research in the Alps (ISCAR), the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) and the University of Innsbruck .
The journal aims to emphasize research and management issues in and on protected areas in the Alps without excluding other protected mountain areas in Europe or overseas. Target audiences of the new journal are: scientists from all related disciplines, managers of protected areas and an interested public including practitioners, visitors, teachers, etc.
eco.mont will be published twice a year in a joint effort of the Austrian Academy Press – responsible for the e-version – and Innsbruck University Press – responsible for the print version.
The deadline for the articles to be included in the second edition is the 1st of June 2009.
This new journal will offer a platform specifically for scientists working in and on protected mountain areas.
