  • Topical Collections

    WETLANDS publishes Topical Collections on a wide range of topics. Authors are invited to submit regular research articles, short communications and review papers in these collections. Find out more


    The completion of a PhD thesis often provides an excellent opportunity to review a key topic, provide new perspectives, and develop new methodology. Wetlands encourages students and early career researchers (ECRs) to publish articles in the form of reviews or perspectives papers.
    Therefore, for every article accepted in these two categories with students and ECRs (defined as being within one year of award of their PhD degree) as the first author, we offer two incentives: 
    1) a voucher for free access to any Springer publication in eBook form (up to a maximum value of 250 Euros/US dollars, and maximum one per year) in perpetuity
    2) article made freely accessible for 8 weeks after online first publication.
    Please see our Submission Guidelines on the right for how to apply for these incentives if you are a student or ECR author.
