The Journal of Arid Environments is an international journal publishing high-quality research papers that provide original insights into critical scientific, environmental, ecological, and people-nature issues in the world's drylands. The journal recognises the value of interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary approaches to investigate and better understand the complex scientific and societal issues facing the world's drylands, as well as original single-discipline research. Papers must represent rigorous research from and specifically relevant to hyper-arid, arid, semi-arid or dry-subhumid environments, into past, present, or future conditions.

Papers must have international relevance, and address clearly stated aims, hypotheses, or research questions. We do not accept case studies.
We define a case study as a report or research that applies existing knowledge to a specific context or place, and does not advance knowledge or its research field sufficiently to have appeal to an international audience.
