Eagle Hill Institute is pleased to announce that it is taking over the management of Urban Habitats. As part of that effort, Eagle Hill will maintain access to all previous issues of Urban Habitats (published by the Center for Urban Restoration Ecology, a collaboration between Brooklyn Botanic Garden and Rutgers University, from 2003 to 2012).
The journal will be carried forward in a new incarnation under the title Urban Naturalist, applying Eagle Hill's extensive experience in publishing peer-reviewed natural history journals (Northeastern Naturalist, Southeastern Naturalist, and its most recently introduced publication, Caribbean Naturalist) to this new endeavor. Urban Naturalist will be an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed online journal that covers all aspects of the natural history sciences as they pertain to urban areas worldwide.
Eagle Hill Publications is excited by the journal's prospects and has already received inquiries of interest in submitting manuscripts and publishing special issues. The foundation for Urban Naturalist (assembling a board of editors, establishing the submission guidelines and other journal policies, etc.) is already being laid, and the journal should be ready to begin accepting submissions sometime in the first part of 2014. Also under development is a new website that will provide information on submissions and subscriptions. If you are interested in being involved as a member of the Board of Editors or have recommendations for potential board members, please contact Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions regarding submissions may be directed to Keith at email@example.com. For general questions about the Urban Naturalist, please contact the publisher at firstname.lastname@example.org or 207-546-2821.
