Scope The main objective of Tropical Conservation Science (TCS) is to bring to light research related to the conservation of tropical forests and other tropical ecosystems. TCS is a peer-reviewed, online, open access journal that publishes original research papers and state-of-the-art reviews of broad interest to tropical conservation. Short turn-around time from submission to publication is an important feature of the journal. TCS seeks papers that investigate conservation problems involving, first and foremost, socio-economic, political and industrial drivers of tropical ecosystem loss and degradation. Equally important to the journal is its aim to stimulate the publication of research that maps, tracks, and assesses drivers of tropical/ecosystem conservation. TCS manuscripts typically report on a wide range of topics including taxonomy, ecology, evolution, behavior, parasitology, epidemiology, and population genetics, for both plant and animal communities, as they relate to tropical forest/ecosystem conservation. TCS also welcomes manuscripts reporting on social and economic issues related to tropical conservation, such as the impacts of and/or on indigenous people, poverty, population growth, ecological footprint, conservation policy, and pertinent scientific, technological, cultural and religious issues. The journal encourages interdisciplinary papers using a wide range of methods, including modeling, molecular biology, epidemiology, ecology and/or evolutionary theory, to analyze, assess and discuss vital tropical conservation issues.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
