Peer Review and AIC Publications

We created a comprehensive list of our levels and types of peer review and connected those to each of our publication platforms. Use the document below to determine which platform best fits for your contribution.

We offer many avenues for collaborating and sharing your knowledge with your fellow members or the wider field of conservation. Here are some of the ways you can contribute.

Annual Meeting

  • Our annual meeting hosts more than 200 presentations by professionals in the field. The Call for Papers opens to everyone each summer and ends in early September. You can also share your expertise by leading a workshop at the conference or proposing a topical pre-session. Plan ahead! These meetings are usually planned by mid-November for the next year's meeting. 
  • Many sessions in the annual meeting are sponsored by specialty groups or networks. Some of these sessions may produce postprints that feature articles based on these presentations. We list the deadlines on the Postprints Submission page.

AIC Blog

  • Our blog welcomes contributions from all members about topics relevant to their work or events. Members should log into the Online Community to post: visit News / News Home and click Submit a Post.
