FOCUS AND SCOPE
The Journal of Tropical Peatland is a peer-reviewed online journal focusing specifically on tropical peatlands. As a “free-to-users” publication (NO CHARGES to authors OR readers), it is immediately accessible to readers and potential authors worldwide. It is published jointly by the University of Palangka Raya, Indonesia; Borneo Nature Foundation; the International Peatland Society (IPS) and the Peatland Society of Indonesia (HGI).
The Journal of Tropical Peatland publishes papers on all aspects of peatland science, technology and wise use, including:
- ecology, physical geography, chemistry, climatology and climate change, botany, zoology, socio-economics, policy, restoration, (sustainable) management, conservation and related areas
- studies of the above topics for any tropical ecosystem containing peat, irrespective of peat depth or type (e.g. tropical kerangas with a surface peat layer may be included)
Research papers, short communications and review articles on these and related topics will all be considered; and suggestions for special issues of the Journal based on the proceedings of conferences, seminars, symposia and workshops will be welcomed. The submission of material by authors and from countries with tropical peatlands and whose work would otherwise be inaccessible to the international community is particularly encouraged.
