The new journal eco.mont - Journal of protected mountain areas research will be published in June 2009. The journal was founded as a joint initiative of the Alpine Network of Protected Areas (ALPARC), the International Scientific Committee on Research in the Alps (ISCAR), the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW) and the University of Innsbruck.

The journal aims to emphasize research on and management issues in protected areas in the Alps without excluding other protected mountain areas in Europe or overseas. Target audiences of the new journal are scientists from all related disciplines, managers of protected areas and an interested public including practitioners, visitors, teachers, etc.

The journal will present peer-reviewed articles in English by authors who research on protected mountain areas and management issues within these areas. Eco.mont will be published twice a year in a joint effort of the Austrian Academy Press - responsible for the e-version - and Innsbruck University Press - responsible for the print version.

For the future the journal hopes to be accepted by Thomson's Citation Index to ensure high scientific quality of the published articles.

This new journal will offer a platform specifically for scientists working in and on protected mountain areas. The deadline for the articles to be included in the second edition is the 1st of June 2009.
