YOUR PAPER YOUR WAY

To make it more convenient for authors, Elsevier has a new policy: You may choose to submit your initial manuscript as a single Word or PDF file to be used in the refereeing process. References can be in any consistent style and tables and figures can be embedded in the text. Only when your paper is at the revision stage will you be required to put your paper in the "correct format". For more information please visit the Preparation section in Guide for Authors on line.

 

NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE: ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR MONOGRAPHS

Elsevier is pleased to announce that the retro-digitization project for the Animal Behaviour Monographs (Volumes 1-6, 18 PDFs, 1968-72) is now complete and they are all available online: e.g. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/00661856. These are now available to all ABS and ASAB members and subscribers and those receiving gratis access. Among the many significant contributions that are now available is Jane Goodall’s classic monograph, The Behaviour of Free-living Chimpanzees in the Gombe Stream Reserve, Volume 1, Part 3, Pages 161-311 (1968). The Animal Behaviour Monographs represent precious (and previously largely unavailable) historical content that is now easily accessible online for posterity.
