Molecular Ecology Resources
Molecular Ecology Resources encourages development of broad resources for the community including computer programs, statistical and molecular advances, and extensive molecular tools. The journal is a vehicle for dissemination of these resources, targeting a wide audience of researchers in the fields of evolution, ecology, and conservation. Articles in Molecular Ecology Resources are intended to facilitate studies addressing consequential questions in these fields.
In addition to novel resource articles, Molecular Ecology Resources publishes relevant Reviews, Opinions, and Comments. The journal also publishes occasional Special Issues that emphasize development of resources in a particular area.
Papers that report on empirical research in ecology, evolution, behavior, and conservation, rather than new resources and tools, should be submitted to our companion journal, Molecular Ecology.
Papers that are primarily descriptive and relevant only to the taxon being studied without addressing a question more broadly applicable in ecology are not appropriate for Molecular Ecology and should instead be submitted to a more specialized journal or to Ecology & Evolution.
