Baltica is a peer-reviewed journal published biannually in cooperation with the geoscientists of the circum-Baltic States. This is a regional journal generally linked with the Baltic Sea region and giving priority to the original research papers related to geosciences (geology, physical geography, geophysics, oceanology, etc.). In some cases, other papers including interdisciplinary topics or linked with other regions of our planet are also available for publication.

Botanica (formerly Botanica Lithuanica) is Nature Research Centre’s international periodical scientific journal founded and first published at the then Institute of Botany in 1995. Since 2012,  Botanica  is an open access journal. It is a biannual journal in the English language.

Botanica publishes original and review papers, notices, opinions and information in the field of biomedical science (botany and ecology). Botanica accepts submissions on the diversity, taxonomy, ecology and physiology of plants, algae, fungi, bacteria and phytoviruses. The journal also publishes research in general botany, economic botany and protection of botanical diversity. The manuscripts are peer-reviewed by at least two anonymous experts from Lithuania or other countries. The number of rejected manuscripts averages 30 percent. To ensure the originality of the content of papers published in Botanica, all manuscripts received are screened through the CrossCheck system to detect plagiarism and to check manuscripts for originality and high quality.

Zoology and Ecology

Online ISSN: 2165-8013

Editor-in-chief – – dr. Denis Copilas-Ciocianu

Zoology and Ecology (formerly known as Acta Zoologica Lituanica) publishes original scientific research papers, reviews and short communications dealing with animal ecology and all aspects of zoology presented within an ecological context (including, but not limited to behaviour, morphology, physiology, systematics, and biogeography). There is no bias regarding taxon or type of natural ecosystem. Geographically, priority is given to studies conducted in the Baltic countries and Eastern Europe, but relevant studies from all regions are welcome. Papers concerning man-made (e.g. agricultural) ecosystems can be considered as long as there are demonstrable ramifications for natural environments.

Publication and downloading of articles are free of charge.
