Ecology and Society (E&S) is an electronic, peer-reviewed, multi-disciplinary journal devoted to the rapid dissemination of current research. Manuscript submission, peer review, and publication are all handled on the Internet. Software developed for the journal automates all clerical steps during peer review, facilitates a double-blind peer review process, and allows authors and editors to follow the progress of peer review on the Internet.
E&S views humanity and nature as co-evolving systems that interacts within the bounds of the biosphere at various temporal and spatial scales and across scales. it hopes to create a rigorous scientific forum where issues related to the linked and dynamic systems of humans and nature are discussed and generate an improved understanding of essential interactions that will enhance capacity to actively adapt to change without eroding resilience or creating vulnerability.
