By Nancy Sasavage

A lot of factors go into choosing where to publish your wildlife research findings.  Here’s why you should choose one of TWS journals this year.

Reduced page charges for members

As a TWS member, you are eligible for 40 percent off the standard page charges.  In 2018, we have also eliminated all color page charges.

The following page charges and publication fees apply to all manuscripts, except Letters to the Editor, Invited Papers, and Book Reviews, that go into production after January 1, 2018.

If none of the authors are a member of The Wildlife Society:

Authors also may choose to publish the manuscript under TWS’ and Wiley’s open-access option; the fee for publication will is $3,000 in lieu of page charges.

Streamlined guidelines for authors

We know author guidelines are no fun to read, so that’s why the journal editors and editorial staff have revised the guidelines and put all information you need for quick-reference at the very beginning of the guidelines.

High visibility

Your published work can be seen by 10,000 of your peers because all TWS members have online access to TWS journals.  Plus Wiley offers tips for how to get more publicity for your published work.  Check out this free promotional toolkit.
