Spring is an international peer-reviewed, open-access journal covering conservation science and sustainability. The journal provides an academic platform for professionals and researchers to contribute innovative work in the fields of basic and applied conservation ecology, nature conservation and sustainability. The core theme of the journal is "SAVE NATURE, SAVE LIFE".
The journal Spring strongly encourages papers on ethical, social, socio-economic, legal and policy issues related to the management and use of biodiversity and ecosystems.
The journal publishes research, reviews, analysis, case study, perspectives and communication in all major disciplines of conservation & sustainability. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible.
