Koedoe is a peer reviewed, open access journal, published since 1958, that promotes science and environmental conservation in Africa. Published by South African National Parks since the journal's inception, Koedoe joined OpenJournals Publishing in 2007.
Koedoe, with its new subtitle "African Protected Area Conservation and Science" aims to provide a forum for all aspects of protected area science and management in order to facilitate integration and shared learning.
Koedoe is published once a year through rolling publication (manuscript are published as they are ready).
Koedoe publishes original papers on all aspects of conservation science, as well as on policy and management related issues. This journal provides novel, exciting and baseline scientific information on many conservation areas in South Africa as well as on the African continent generally.
With its platform in the open access arena, Koedoe is well positioned to become the journal of choice for conservation scientists, ecologists, biologists and protected area practitioners across Africa. The journal aims to include all forms of protected areas, from large state national parks to small regional and local game and nature reserves, cultural and environmental heritage areas to private conservation endeavours.
Koedoe has introduced a new structured abstract format that concludes with a section entitled "Conservation Implications", in which authors are explicitly requested to defend the relevance of their work to a broader constituency.
Koedoe publishes exciting original research, essays, short communications on issues of general interest, in-depth and critical reviews, monographs on large datasets and complicated issues, and book reviews on new releases.
Its abbreviated title is Koedoe, which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.
