Ecological Engineering has an open access mirror journal Ecological Engineering: X, sharing the same aims and scope, editorial team, submission system and rigorous peer review.

Ecological engineering has been defined as the design of ecosystems for the mutual benefit of humans and nature. The journal is meant for ecologists who, because of their research interests or occupation, are involved in designing, monitoring, or restoring ecosystems, and can serve as a bridge between ecologists and engineers.

Specific topics covered in the journal include: habitat reconstruction; ecotechnology; synthetic ecology; bioengineering; restoration ecology; ecology conservation; ecosystem rehabilitation; stream and river restoration; reclamation ecology; non-renewable resource conservation. Descriptions of specific applications of ecological engineering are acceptable only when situated within context of adding novelty to current research and emphasizing ecosystem restoration. We do not accept purely descriptive reports on ecosystem structures (such as vegetation surveys), purely physical assessment of materials that can be used for ecological restoration, small-model studies carried out in the laboratory or greenhouse with artificial (waste)water or crop studies, or case studies on conventional wastewater treatment and eutrophication that do not offer an ecosystem restoration approach within the paper.

The journal welcomes full papers, short communications, reviews, and letters to the editor. We are pleased to publish papers from multidisciplinary approaches that are pertinent to a wide range of scholars, managers, practitioners, and policymakers across ecological sciences.

All papers will be subject to peer review and they will be dealt with as speedily as is compatible with a high standard of presentation.

Same scope. Same editorial board. Same quality. Two journals.

When you submit your paper to Ecological Engineering you have the choice of publishing in one of two high-quality journals. Ecological Engineering (2017 Journal Impact Factor 3.023, CiteScore 3.43) is available through subscription, while Ecological Engineering: X is gold open access.

With Ecological Engineering: X, authors who want to publish in a gold open access journal can make their work immediately, permanently, and freely accessible. Ecological Engineering: X authors pay an article publishing charge (APC), have a choice of license options, and retain copyright.

Ecological Engineering and Ecological Engineering: X have the same aims and scope. A unified editorial team manages rigorous peer-review for both titles using the same submission system. The author's choice of journal is blinded to referees, ensuring the editorial process is identical. Both journals are hosted on ScienceDirect and benefit from the same level of visibility and discoverability only available on this industry-leading platform.
