 Third Issue of the
International Journal of UNESCO Biosphere Reserves


This year brings us many opportunities to connect with our regional, national, and international communities. We hope that you'll be able to join us for one of our upcoming events.

The third issue of the online International Journal of UNESCO Biosphere Reserves (biospherejournal.org) will be a special issue that focuses on the work of UNESCO Chairs working in or with Biosphere Reserves.  We wish to highlight the work of Chairs and colleagues through this call. 

A publication in the journal may be a research article, note, case study, video, photo essay, or in another digital format.  Topics can include any aspect of your work, from applied to theoretical research, community engagement, student focused projects, or innovative programs. 

The journal remains, in perpetuity, an interdisciplinary, digital, Open Access, subscription-free publication.

We look forward to your submissions: publishing criteria are available on our website at biospherejournal.org.   The deadline for submission of materials for the next issue is January 20th, 2018, for publication in February 2018.  

If you would like to submit a publication for this special issue, or have any questions, please contact Pam Shaw at pam.shaw@viu.ca.
