New changes in the journal's policy

Dear authors,

The Editorial Board of Ecologia Balkanica is implementing some new requirements for all new manuscript submissions from January 1st 2017 as follows:

1. All manuscripts must be accompanied with fully filled cover letter, which can be found for download on our site. The cover letter must be signed by all participating authors! Three independent reviewers, experts in the field of the study, must be suggested, but you cannot suggest colleagues from the same institution (department, faculty) as the authors of the paper.

2. DOI (Digital Object Identifier) numbers for all cited electronic references (journal articles, conference proceedings, books) are required for those references, which have DOI.

3. Sattelite photos (especially from Google Earth) are no longer acceptable for maps of the studied region. Instead use some kind of GIS software (properly cited in the Material and Methods section) for the preparation of the maps, or use other indicative or topographical maps.

4. Unpublished theses (BSc, MSc, PhD, DSc) are not considered officially published scientific literary sources, therefore from January 2015, are no longer allowed as valid citations. If you absolutely must cite such a sourse, cite it as "personal communication".

5. In studies, where injuries or death of animals is caused, by the used methods, ehen alternative non-harming techniques exist, but were not used, the manuscripts may not be considered for publication.

Please refer and check our Instructions for authors before submitting a manuscript.

Thank you!

Our website was temporary down

Due to unforseen technical problems the website of Ecologia Balkanica was down for few days. It is now operational and all content available. We appologize for the incovenience.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear authors,

The Editorial Board of Ecologia Balkanica shares the opinion that all knowledge should be free and accessible to all scholars, scientists, academics, etc. Since 2009, when we first extablished the journal Ecologia Balkanica has adopted the open access ideology and publishing and access to the journal's content is free of charge ever since. We are doing our best to keep the journal free, publication fast and the overall quality of publication high. In this respect, due to some financial difficulties, the Editorial Board of Ecologia Balkanica on it's meeting on 15.12.2015 came to e decision that from 2016 the journal will be piblished only in it's electronic form and hard copies will no longer be printed. We believe that the future of scientific research is the electronic access to research, since this is the fastest, easiest and most reliable way to find new research and knowledge. All print issues, published in the period 2009-2015 are deposited in the listed libraries here. From 2016, volume 8, issue 1, the journal will be published only electronically under ISSN 1313-9940. We believe this will lead to faster publication and overall improvement of the articles. Because of this new instructions for authors are now applied. All new manuscripts must be formatted and compiled according to the new guidelines. Manuscripts without the sample cover letter (fully filled out correctly) are rejected automatically.

Thank you and we are currently accepting new manuscipts,

Best regards,
The Editorial Board of Ecologia Balkanica
