The latest issue (Volume 3, Issue 4 – August 2010) of Conservation Letters is now available free-of-charge online. This issue’s papers include 1 Mini-Review, 2 Policy Perspectives, 6 Letters, 1 Correspondence and 1 Response:

Another great line-up, for sure. You’ll also note that this is our greatest number of papers yet published in particular issue (sure sign that interest and demand is growing). As mentioned not too long ago, Conservation Letters was ISI-listed this year and will probably pick up a > 3 Impact Factor in June 2011.

For some reason the switch to the new Wiley-Blackwell journal platform has lost the latest issue (August) of Conservation Letters. The papers are still available, but they are now back to ‘early view’. I imagine this will be rectified shortly.
