Natural Areas Journal News
April 2018

Welcome to a special issue of the Natural Areas News focused on our Journal!


As the platforms and methods for sharing scientific information are evolving, the Natural Areas Journal is evolving, too. And with the debut of our new website and Member Portal, we have more ways to access the Journal than ever before.


Learn more about some of the new features we’ve introduced – and be reminded why the Journal continues to be the flagship of the Natural Areas Association’s programming for our members.

Take a Look at April's Open Access Journal Article

Not a member, but want to see what the Journal is all about? We make one article per Journal open access, so everyone can enjoy it.

Our New Member Portal Offers Unlimited Access to Current and Past Journals

This new member benefit makes it easier than ever before. April 2018 is now available online!

New PeerTrack Submission System Comes Online

This will shorten the interval between submission and publication, allowing those who submit to see their accepted contributions in print more quickly.

Meet the Journal’s Associate Editors – and Maybe Join Them

Our quarterly peer-reviewed publication wouldn’t get to press without peer reviewers – especially our Associate Editors.

Have You Submitted to the Journal Lately?

With our PeerTrack system up and running, manuscript turnaround is faster than ever.

Blast from the Past


This is the cover of our very first Natural Areas Journal, January 1981 - next to the cover from April of last year. The Journal has changed through the years in response to the needs of our members and subscribers - and there's more to come!
