JNABS 25th-Year Anniversary Issue
Expiration Date: 2/08/2020
Dear NABS Members,
J-NABS is celebrating its 25th anniversary by publishing a special issue of the Journal. The issue is titled A 25th-year Anniversary Issue: The Role of J-NABS in Freshwater Benthic Science (Pamela Silver and Alan D. Steinman [editors]). It consists of 18 review papers that address the progress of 18 subdisciplines within benthology and the role of the Journal in the development of each subdiscipline. Authors provide a broad review of the literature, place the papers published in J-NABS within an historical context (each author includes a timeline of key papers in their field), and analyze the contribution of papers published in J-NABS to the subdiscipline. They also describe challenges and opportunities for future development of the field. In addition, the issue has an introduction that discusses the role of discipline-specific journals in scientific discovery and a synthesis chapter that pulls together common themes among the review articles.
The table of contents and a link to articles in the current issue is available on the NABS website:
The anniversary issue will be published in March 2010, and will appear online (100% open access) 5 February 2010. This issue will be ~400 pages long and we hope it will become a reference book for the discipline. Topics include hydrology, the hyporheos, landscape ecology, disturbance, patch dynamics, taxonomy/systematics, microbial ecology, periphyton, biotic interactions, life histories, ecosystem linkages, secondary production, bioassessment (2 chapters), conservation, and basic/applied science (Bridges).
If you have a print subscription to J-NABS your Anniversary Issue will arrive in February. If you do not have a print subscription or if you want additional copies, the issue can be purchased separately for $29.95. Copies will be available in Santa Fe, or you can order one directly by contacting Irwin Polls (firstname.lastname@example.org). Payment must be received before copies will be shipped.
