ESCIRusssian Science Citation Index (RSCI)



The journal "Nature Conservation Research" has been included into the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI).
For reference: Journals in Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) have passed an initial editorial evaluation and can continue to be considered for inclusion in products such as SCIE, SSCI, and AHCI, which have rigorous evaluation processes and selection criteria. All ESCI journals will be indexed according to the same data standards, including cover-to-cover indexing, cited reference indexing, subject category assignment, and indexing all authors and addresses (from: Clarivate Analytics website).

Being developed, our Journal aims to expand its audience of authors and readers. In 2018-2019 we plan to form several special volumes of the journal "Nature Conservation Research" which will include articles exclusively in the English language:

1. "Wildfire management and wildfire impact on biodiversity in Protected Areas". The deadline for special volume is 31 December 2018.
2. "Ecological tourism in Protected Areas and its impact on biodiversity". The deadline for special volume is 01 April 2019.
