Trending… A TWS Journal Spotlight on the Most Downloaded Papers of 2020


Symposia will be available on-demand on their scheduled date, then again at the conclusion of the conference.

For over 80 consecutive years, The Wildlife Society has helped develop, contextualize, and advance the scientific foundation of wildlife management through publication of peer-reviewed studies in the Journal of Wildlife Management (1937), Wildlife Monographs (1958), and Wildlife Society Bulletin (1973). This symposium will take a look at the most popular TWS journal articles of 2020 as a snapshot of what’s currently trending in the wildlife profession – as measured by the number of downloads. As a leading resource for wildlife managers in the field, looking at active engagement with TWS journal content now, may provide insights about the future of wildlife management in North America. Listen to these featured authors describe their research and join in the conversation surrounding the most popular papers in TWS journals this year! Interested in publishing your own research in a TWS journal? As a compliment to this symposium, the TWS Conference will also feature a journal editor networking lounge where attendees can interact directly with the Editor-in-Chief of all three TWS journals and other editors/representatives from Wiley and TWS. This will be an open forum to answer your questions and for the editors to provide helpful tips about getting accepted and published in a TWS journal.
