I hope none of you will object to a bit of advertising. I’ve been co-editing1 a special issue of Annales Zoologici Fennici on Methods in Ecological Research. I’ll blog more about it when it comes out, but for now here’s an advert in case you want to buy the special issue in one handy bundle of dead tree.
FWIW, I don’t see any of the money, but we do need to cover the cost of production.
Dear colleagues, we are planning on publishing a special issue on Methods in Ecological Research in the journal Annales Zoologici Fennici (2009, second issue). If you are interested in purchasing a copy of this issue, please contact our Managing Editor at firstname.lastname@example.org BEFORE the 15th of March 2009.
The issue consists of six peer reviewed articles and is aimed at those at the onset of their scientific careers, and perhaps even experienced readers of ecology and evolutionary biology, when they start planning and implementing a new study:
Paper 0. Kotze, D.J. & O’Hara, R.B. Preface – Methods in Ecological Research
Paper 1. Ford, E.D. The importance of a research data statement and how to develop one
Paper 2. Underwood, A.J. Components of design in ecological field experiments
Paper 3. Campbell, D.L.M. et al. Context and control: behavioural ecology experiments in the laboratory
Paper 4. O’Hara, R.B. How to make models add up – a primer on GLMMs
Paper 5. Läärä, E. Statistics: reasoning on uncertainty, and the insignificance of testing null
Paper 6. Harvey, J.A. Preparing a paper for publication: an action plan for rapid composition and completion
The cost of the issue is 25 euros + p&p
