The annual ESA meeting is fast approaching. This year it’s in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and I’ll be heading across the pond, along with Catherine Hill, our Head of Publications and Hazel Norman, our Executive Director, to chat to delegates about Journal of Ecology, as well as our other journals and the BES as a whole.
The Journal of Ecology Executive Editor David Gibson will also be attending the meeting as will several of our very hard working Associate Editors. I’m looking forward to a productive meeting with all of them and also to thanking them in person for their help towards making Journal of Ecology the success that it is.
If you’re attending ESA and are a reader of the journal, thinking of submitting, or would like to make suggestions for improvements or content, please come and find me, Catherine or Hazel at the BES stand for a chat. We’ll be at stand number 202-204.
In addition to the three of us, David Gibson along with Alan Knapp, one our sister journal Functional Ecology’s Senior Editors will be at the stand during the Wednesday 10th August poster session to answer your questions about publishing in our journals.
Finally, if you’re interested in finding out about the great work the BES does to communicate and promote ecological knowledge around the world, come and meet our amazing President Sue Hartley at our stand on Tuesday 9 August between 4.30pm and 6.30pm.
When we’re not at the stand you’ll mainly find us outside enjoying the only sun we’re likely to get this year, before heading back to grey old London!
