Journal of North American Bat Research ... where the results are significant
For almost 30 years, the Eagle Hill Institute, publisher of JNABR, has been building a solid reputation for publishing high quality research related to natural history and the biological sciences. We welcome your interest in joining those authors who have experienced all that we have to offer.
Thanks to our diverse Editorial Board of experienced, detail-oriented, dedicated researchers who appreciate the value of a double-blind review process for providing impartial, constructive feedback, JNABR authors receive quality helpful consideration of their manuscripts. They also benefit from the personal attention, responsiveness, and efficiency of the journal staff and the fine-tuned review process.
JNABR articles are published early online just as soon as they are ready for prompt distribution. Authors receive a print-quality pdf reprint, which they are free to post on their personal web pages or institutional online repositories.
JNABR is indexed by way of author entries in Google Scholar and ResearchGate. Its indexing coverage is expected to become comparable to that of the Institute's first 3 journals (Northeastern Naturalist, Southeastern Naturalist, and Journal of the North Atlantic) which are indexed in Web of Science (clarivate.com).
Scope: JNABR covers all aspects of the biology of bats, Order Chiroptera, living in North America, from Canada to Panama, and the West Indies (Bahamas, Greater Antilles, and Lesser Antilles). Manuscripts based on studies outside this region that provide information on species within the region may be considered at the Editor’s discretion.
Subject matter: The journal welcomes work, produced in the field or the laboratory, that focuses on the ecology, behavior, biogeography, conservation, management, taxonomy, evolution, anatomy, and/or physiology of bats. Studies testing specific hypotheses, as well as surveys gathering demographic and life-history data are encouraged, but the journal also welcomes integrative review papers, observational notes, and book reviews.
In addition to submissions for regular issue articles, for those interested in publishing the proceedings of a conference or meeting, or a thematic collection of papers, we have extensive experience in the publication of special issues that meet the praticular goals of the issue organizers/editors. If you have an idea for a special issue, we encourage you to contact the Editor.
