Aim & Scope: The International Journal of Biodiversity Science, Ecosystem Services & Management( IJBESM ) aims to improve our understanding of the role of biodiversity in providing ecosystem services and of the management systems needed to maintain biodiversity and achieve sustainable use of ecosystem services.

Papers published in IJBESM address at least one of the following themes:

(a) The link between biodiversity and ecosystem services; i.e. what is the role of biodiversity in providing ecosystem services?

(b) The link between ecosystem services and management; i.e. how can ecosystem services be (sustainably) managed and what are the trade-offs in service provision across management systems?

(c) The link between biodiversity and management; i.e. what are the effects of different management systems on biodiversity?

(d) The recurring question of whether and how the ecosystem services concept supports or hinders biodiversity conservation.

Articles may address these topics from different perspectives, including fundamental research, integrated participatory or model-oriented assessment approaches, or policy-oriented analyses. Articles may be interdisciplinary, drawing from environmental, land use and conservation science, or draw from disciplines such as biology, (landscape) ecology, and socio-cultural or economic studies. Systems addressed may range from natural and semi-natural ecosystems to cultivated systems and urban areas.

IJBESM accepts original Research Papers, Short Research Papers, Short Communications, Research Letters, Reviews and Book Reviews.

Preparation of manuscripts should be in accordance with the Instructions for Authors.
Peer Review Statement
The International Journal of Biodiversity Science, Ecosystem Services & Management is an international, peer-reviewed journal which publishes original research contributions to scientific knowledge. All manuscript submissions are subject to initial appraisal by the Editorial Team, and, if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees.
