Park Science is a resource management bulletin of the National Park Service that reports recent and ongoing natural and social science research, its implications for park planning and management, and its application to resource management. Published by the Natural Resource Information Division of the Natural Resource Program Center, it appears twice annually, usually in the spring and summer. Additional issues, including thematic issues that explore a topic in depth, are published on occasion. Content receives editorial review for usefulness, basic scientific soundness, clarity, completeness, and policy considerations; materials do not undergo anonymous peer review. Letters that address the scientific content or factual nature of an article are welcome; they may be edited for length, clarity, and tone. Mention of trade names or commercial products does not constitute endorsement or recommendation for use by the National Park Service.
Send articles, comments, address changes, and other information to the editor at the e-mail address above; hard copy materials should be forwarded to the editorial office address. Deadline for submissions is January 15 for the spring issue and April 15 for summer.
Park Science is also published on-line (ISSN-1090-9966). All back issues of the publication, article submission guidelines, and other useful information can be viewed and downloaded from the website
