The Urban Naturalist has a page charge to help defray a portion of the cost of producing the journal. The rate is $40 per page. Allowances for special circumstances may be considered prior to acceptance for review.
Consequences of changes in employment or affiliation need to be anticipated in a timely manner. Research sponsors, institutions, and authors understand that such contributions are routine and necessary to produce a high quality scientific journal that is published in a timely manner. Arrangements and a guarantee of payment are the personal responsibility of the authors.
Without such contributions, the number of pages the journal can publish would depend too heavily on the subscription base of the journal, which would limit the kinds and number of manuscripts the journal can accept for review, thus limiting the journal’s ability to meet the expectations of authors hoping to publish in the journal.
There are no additional charges for color figures in online publications.
Also, at no extra cost, authors are provided a print-quality pdf version of their published article with permission to post the file on their personal or their institution’s website.
If authors wish to obtain professionally printed copies of their paper, that can be arranged—contact email@example.com for a quote.
We welcome your submission to the journal. Before sending in a manuscript, please view the Range and Scope page of this site to be sure the topic is suitable for consideration. Also, authors should carefully read the formatting and procedural guidelines in the following documents and refer to the sample article for a model of what is generally expected in terms of formatting.
If you have any questions regarding manuscript preparation or submission, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help maximize exposure for this new journal, the Urban Naturalist is currently offering open access to its content. Just click on the links below.
The Urban Naturalist has grown out of the fertile ground of Brooklyn Botanic Garden's journal Urban Habitats, which is no longer active.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.
The publisher, Eagle Hill Institute, reserves the copyright to all its publications. Any reproduction, other than for an individual's own personal and private use, or distribution of journal content is prohibited without written permission from Eagle Hill Institute.
Authors of articles published in the Urban Naturalist are allowed to post the pdf reprints of their articles on their own website, as well as personally distribute copies to their colleagues, provided they do so along with a clear statement of the Institute's copyright policy as stated above.
