Journal Overview

Boreal Environment Research is a truly open access, multi-disciplinary journal devoted to various aspects of the Boreal and Arctic regions and their ecosystems.

The journal offers rapid publication of high quality, original research. From a methodological point of view, manuscripts dealing with atmospheric or ecosystem monitoring and modelling should focus on boreal environments; and may include polar, Arctic and hemi-boreal regions.

Manuscripts dealing with theoretical concepts, field or laboratory experiments related to the below-mentioned topics are welcome.

Topics include:
  • Atmosphere and climate
  • Fisheries and aquaculture
  • Hydrobiology
  • Forests
  • Tundra
  • Wetlands
  • Physical Oceanography
  • Hydrology
  • Geology
  • Soils

This journal does not charge for manuscript submission or processing fees. All manuscripts are published online and freely accessible.
