Announcing the Urban Naturalist ...

... the fourth in Eagle Hill Publications' series of natural history science journals, extending coverage to urban and suburban areas worldwide.

The Urban Naturalist (ISSN # 2328-8965) is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original articles focused on all aspects of the natural history sciences as they pertain to urban areas. The journal offers:

• over 20 years experience of consistently providing timely high-quality publication services for peer-reviewed natural history research

• an efficient and responsive peer review process

• article-by-article online publication for prompt distribution to a global audience

• the expertise and attention to detail to efficiently publish special issues based conference proceedings or a series of invitational articles

• the capability to accommodate publication of a wide range of supplemental files in association with journal articles

• extensive experience in production of special issues based on conference proceedings, workshop or symposiums, or a thematic collection of articles. Our special issue guidelines are a good place to start if you are considering publishing an enitre issue highlighting a particular topic.

As is the case with Eagle Hill's other natural history journals, the Urban Naturalist is expected to be fully indexed in Elsevier, Thomson Reuters, Proquest, EBSCO, Google Scholar, and other databases.

The journal is published by the Eagle Hill Institute, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation of the State of Maine (Federal tax ID # 010379899).

Special Issues


Urban Habitats Archived Content ...

The Urban Naturalist has grown out of the fertile ground of Brooklyn Botanic Garden's journal Urban Habitats, which is no longer active. As such, we have agreed to steward the archives of all of the past published content of the Urban Habitats, which remains open access. While we will soon migrate the content on to our site, for now, you can still access those articles on the still extant Urban Habitats site.
