Oikos publishes fresh, innovative empirical and theoretical research that builds bridges across taxa, systems, and disciplines in ecology. Our oldest journal (70 years and counting!) is known for encouraging healthy debate and speculation, and for giving voice to bold and provocative ideas that shape ecological thinking and go on to become mainstream.


A fully Gold Open Access journal, Ecography is a top outlet for spatial and temporal ecology. In addition to publishing empirical and theoretical research, Ecography also features notes on free computer software to help researchers analyze data. Each year the journal offers E4 Awards with cash prizes for exceptional review papers by early-career researchers.
