2012: 9th European Dry Grassland Meeting: Dry grassland of Europe: grazing and ecosystem services (Prespa, Greece)
Planned Dry Grassland Special Features (17.12.2012):
Presently, EDGG is organising five Special Issues/Special Features in international journals. There are two on grassland diversity, one in Biodiversity and Conservation, one in Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment. In the first journal, the submission deadline is already over, in the second the last of the invited papers can be submitted until end of this year. We assume that both Special Issues, covering a wide range of botanical and zoological studies will appear in 2013. Our third cooperation with a leading international journal is the preparation of a Virtual Special Feature of Applied Vegetation Science on “Towards a consistent classification of European grasslands”. “Virtual” means that the individual articles will be published independently after acceptance over a period of 2–3 years, and the final articles will be accompanied by a synthesis paper of the guest editors. Here also the invitation of contributions is already closed, and the first paper has been accepted. It will appear in the second half of 2013 together with a brief editorial.
The traditional Dry Grassland Special Feature for Tuexenia 33 (2013) focused on temperate dry grasslands is also making progress, with three of the invited papers already in review and the rest expected in the near future. In 2013, we will for the first time have a similar Special Issue in the Slovenian journal Hacquetia, focused on Mediterranean dry grasslands, where the invited papers can still be submitted until 28 February 2013. EDGG has recently reached agreements with the chief editors of both journals that guarantee the open-ended continuation of the EDGG-edited Dry Grassland Special Features on an annual basis in both journals. The idea is that our Special Features in Tuexenia take the botanical papers from the temperate and boreal zone, while our Special Features in Hacquetia take the zoological papers and the botanical papers from the sub-Mediterranean and Mediterranean zone. In both cases, this publication venue will be mainly open to contributions of the European Dry Grassland Meeting of the preceding year, but we additionally will allow a limited number of papers from the EDGG members in general. In the future, the team of guest editors in Tuexenia will be led by Thomas Becker (email@example.com) as successor of Jürgen Dengler, who has coordinated these Special Features since their “invention” in 2005. As we have secured a continuous production of the EDGG Special Features in Tuexenia for the coming years, it will become standard that papers that are accepted but were finalised by the authors too late for a certain volume of Tuexenia are simply transferred to the subsequent volume. This will allow a more continuous production process in the future. We will try to arrange with the editors of Tuexenia that such papers then will be EDGG Special Issues/Special Features published online prior to print publication (“online first” as in many international journals). Finally, we also have decided to simplify the submission process to the Dry Grassland Special Features in Tuexenia and make it on a continuous basis. Authors who wish to publish there for the first or second time will still first have to pass the abstract screening once a year, approximately one month after the EDGM, where only papers with positively evaluated abstracts may be submitted. Authors who have already co-authored at least two papers (except editorials) in the Tuexenia Dry Grassland Special Features, can now submit their first- or senior-authored contributions at any time without pre-evaluation. Presently, there are 13 persons that qualify for this “fast lane” (see Galvanek et al. 2012), namely T. Becker, M. Beldean, J. Dengler, D. Dubravková, M. Janišová, M. Jeschke, K. Kiehl, E. Ruprecht, I. Škodová, A. Szabó, P.D. Turtureanu and E. Uhliarová, but we assume that this list will grow fast. If you are among those listed and you wish to submit a paper, just send it to the chair of the Tuexenia guest editors, Thomas Becker. You don’t need to wait for the annual abstract evaluation any more. While the Special Features in Hacquetia will start with a full issue in 2013, in the following years we assume that we will always fill approximately half of the autumn issue of that journal. As already indicated, the focus in Hacquetia will be zoological papers and papers on Mediterranean dry grasslands. Hacquetia is fairly new, an open-access journal (2012 is only volume 11). It has an attractive homepage at http://versita.metapress.com/ content/120766/, where you can find all articles since volume 6 (2007) for free download, including numerous relevant articles on fauna, flora, vegetation and conservation of dry grasslands. Hacquetia has been indexed in SCOPUS since 2009 and is likely also to be included in Web of Science in the near future. If you are interested in supporting the inclusion of Hacquetia in WoS, you can submit your proposal with your individual arguments why Hacquetia is worth coverage to the ISI r e c o m m e n d a t i o n p a g e : h t t p : / / i p - science.thomsonreuters.com/info/journalsubmission/ (note that they state on their homepage that multiple proposals would not help but the facts of the past have shown that actually they help very much; Thomson- Reuters is a highly commercial enterprise that is interested in providing products that meet the requirements of as many potential customers as possible).
