Author Guidelines


Submissions should conform to the author guidelines for the journal Ecological Informatics, except as described below. Manuscripts are to be written in English. They should include title, author(s) and affiliations, abstract, as well as the text of the paper and references. Figures should be placed inline in the text for the initial submission. Please indicate whether the submission is an oral presentation in one of the special sessions or the general track or a poster presentation / demonstration in the poster track. Oral presentations will be organized into sessions by topic.

Papers should be organized as follows: Title (should be clear, descriptive and not too long), Authors and their affiliations, Abstract (one paragraph not to exceed 400 words), Keywords (four to six), introduction, methods and techniques results and discussion, conclusions, Acknowledgments, and References. Tables and Figures should be included inline at the appropriate points in the manuscript. All tables and figures should include a descriptive caption and should be referenced in the text of the article. SI units should be used throughout.


The abstract should be a clear summary of the work emphasizing the major results and conclusions. It should be no longer than 400 words and should not include any references or acronyms.


Citations in the text should use the (author date) style, including the author's last name and the year of the publication [e.g., (Jones 2001)]. Multiple cited works should be separated by commas [e.g., (Jones 2001, Smith 1999)]. Inline citations should refer in the text to the author's name (without initial) and year of publication. For example, "Since Smith (1999) has shown that ...". If a publication written by more than two authors is cited, list the name of the first author followed by "et al." [ for example, (Brown et al. 2005)].

All cited publications should be listed in the 'References' section, which should only include references that were directly cited in the text. Check spelling carefully to be sure that authors' names and dates are exactly the same in the text as in References. Do not abbreviate the titles of periodicals mentioned in the References. The references list should be formatted using the following style:

Smith, M.U., 1999. Software for environmental workflows. Ecological
Informatics 2(3): 234-256. doi: 10.234/eismith-1999
