Aims and Scope
Journal of Ecology publishes original research papers on all aspects of the ecology of plants (including algae), in both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. We do not publish papers concerned solely with cultivated plants and agricultural ecosystems. Studies of plant communities, populations or individual species are accepted, as well as studies of the interactions between plants and animals, fungi or bacteria, providing they focus on the ecology of the plants.

We aim to bring important work using any ecological approach (including molecular techniques) to a wide international audience and therefore only publish papers with strong and ecological messages that advance our understanding of ecological principles.

Second attempt at this journal, the first article was directly rejected. This time, after the external review of the article, both reviewers were very positive: one reviewer had no comments and suggested acceptance directly; the second reviewer provided many detailed suggestions, which were very pertinent. After making the revisions, it was accepted smoothly, taking a total of 2 months and 6 days. Very fortunate...

Because this is based on the impact factor of the environment and ecology together, environmental journals have a huge number of publications, and their impact factors are skyrocketing. Naturally, these influential journals in ecology are classified into other categories.
