ANPC affiliation with Ecological Management and Restoration
In recognition of the similar goals of the Australian Network for Plant Conservation and the journal Ecological Management & Restoration (EMR), the Executive of the journal invited ANPC to affiliate with the journal. ANPC agreed to affiliation.
EMR was set up to develop stronger 2-way communication between practitioners and researchers to communicate the cause of sustainable management and sound restoration of ecosystems.
EMR seeks affiliations with management-oriented organisations to enhance EMR’s capacity to reach a practitioner/manager readership.
Benefits of affiliation to ANPC
- A sense of partnership with the journal, encouraging members of ANPC to contribute to and read the journal – thus facilitating the mutually beneficial flow of ideas.
- Eligibility (for ANPC individual members) to the affiliate discount subscription rate. This includes electronic access to the current issue and all back copies. The subscription rate is currently $70.40 (incl GST) rather than $93.50 for other subscribers.
- ANPC is entitled to one ½-page free advertisement in EMR each year.
