New publication fee structure for Wildlife Monographs

By Nancy Sasavage

Published by The Wildlife Society since 1958, Wildlife Monographs are single-topic, peer-reviewed studies on specific problems and issues in wildlife science, management and conservation.  These published works have made significant contributions to wildlife science.

Beginning Jan. 1, The Wildlife Society reduced the publication fees for Wildlife Monographs from $10,000 to $7,500 and eliminated color page charges to encourage authors to publish their work in this highly regarded journal. The journal’s 2016 Impact Factor was 5.75 and it ranked number one of 162 publications in the zoology category and 12 of 153 in ecology.

New open-access option

And for the first time, we have created an open-access option for Wildlife Monographs, which allows anyone to read the published paper in the Wiley Online Library. The publication fee for this option is $10,000.

High visibility

Even without the open-access option, 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.
