List of journals and contributors
This is a list of journals that we have searched so far (for more details see our methods
pages). We have systematically checked every article in each volume of the journal for the years shown and identified articles that fit our criteria. We have a separate list for non-English journals
and for ‘grey literature
’ such as reports. Articles that fit our criteria are then stored in our evidence repository until they are summarised and included in a synopsis
and in our searchable database
What studies have we searched for?
2. The effects of the action on biodiversity or ecosystem services must have been monitored quantitatively. There are a variety of relevant metrics for Conservation Evidence but some common ones include abundance, diversity, population trends, reproductive success, survival rate, percentage cover and establishment of a successful breeding population.
We continually search 30 of the biggest conservation and ecology journals (including Conservation Biology, Biological Conservation, Ecology, Journal of Applied Ecology, Oryx; for more details see our methods
pages). Additional journals are frequently added to the list searched, for example when specialist journals are searched for the production of a specific synopsis.
