On the eve of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, PLOS ONE is calling for submissions for a new Collection on Rewilding and Restoration. As environmental pressures intensify and efforts to restore and rewild expand, there is an urgent need for a rigorous and relevant scientific evidence base to inform practical decisions and policy-making. We welcome the submission of research articles that explore the design, implementation, management, and outcomes of restoration and rewilding projects in terrestrial, freshwater, marine, and urban ecosystems that use a range of methodological approaches. We encourage submissions of interdisciplinary papers that integrate social and natural science approaches to understand, improve, and scale up restoration and rewilding in the coming decade. We would particularly like to see studies from ecoregions and voices that are underrepresented in the restoration literature.
PLOS ONE publishes primary research across all areas of science, including interdisciplinary research. Research articles are selected for scientific rigor rather than perceived impact. For more information, including submission information, publishing FAQs, and information about fees, metrics and funder compliance, please visit Why Publish with PLOS?
