Announcing Continuous Article Publishing

As of 2017, European Journal of Wildlife Research will change its publication structure from paginated issues to a consecutive publishing model: Continuous Article Publishing.

This means that papers will be published in a volume/issue immediately after acceptance. The Online First queue will become obsolete and the time from submission to publication in an issue will be significantly shorter. This will give published articles full citation details instantly after online publication.

As a further aspect of the new system, articles will no longer be paginated sequentially by issue. Therefore, every article will start with page number 1. Page numbers will not be used for article citation but every article will have a citation ID number, called the ArticleCitationID. The ArticleCitationID will replace the page numbers in the citation line, which will now include the journal citation title, year, volume number and ArticleCitationID.

Old: Eur J Wildl Res (2016) 62:377-393
New: Eur J Wildl Res (2017) 63: 123

This method of citation is accepted by the Web of Science/Journal Citation Reports (ISI).

We feel that our authors and readers will greatly benefit from this change in the publication structure of European Journal of Wildlife Research.
