Alces invites original manuscripts describing studies of the biology and management of moose throughout their circumpolar distribution, as well as other ungulate or carnivore species that overlap their range. Some manuscripts published in Alces originate as papers presented at the annual North American Moose Conference and Workshop, but works may be submitted directly to the Editors at any time. Each is examined by the Submissions Editor and assigned to an Associate Editor who selects at least two reviewers knowledgeable about the subject. Reviewers judge submitted manuscripts on data originality, ideas, analyses, interpretation, accuracy, conciseness, clarity, appropriate subject matter, and on their contribution to existing knowledge.
In an effort to streamline the submission and review process, Alces is developing a new website that will provide open access publishing of the journal. To submit a manuscript, register as a reviewer, or just to preview the new site, click here.
