Journal news: new Executive Editor and Senior Editor

New Executive Editor

At the end of this year, we will be saying goodbye to Marc Cadotte as Journal of Applied Ecology‘s Executive Editor. Marc has done a fantastic job leading the journal since he took on the role in 2014.


Under Marc’s watch, the journal’s publication record has gone from strength to strength. We’ve also introduced several new journal initiatives under his leadership, including our Special Features. Marc initiated and took responsibility for the journal’s Twitter account in in its early days as well. The dedication he has shown to ensure Journal of Applied Ecology’s continued quality and high standards is something we are hugely grateful for.

We are also pleased Marc will not be going far in the British Ecological Society community and look forward to working with him as the Editor in Chief of the new project, Applied Ecology Resources. Find out more about this here.

Jos has been a Senior Editor with the journal since 2011 and we are excited to see how he and the rest of the Senior Editor team will continue to steer and develop the journal to what we are confident will be an excellent standard.

Get to know Jos here.

Romina is no stranger to Journal of Applied Ecology, having previously completed our Associate Editor Mentoring Opportunity a few years ago. We are excited to continue working with her in a new editor capacity.

Look out for more from Romina coming soon.

Congratulations to Marc, Jos and Romina on your new roles!
