U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
Scientific Journals

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service welcomes submissions to its online peer reviewed publications focused on the practical application and integration of applied science to wildlife conservation and management—the Journal of Fish and Wildlife Management (JFWM; first published in 2010) and the North American Fauna monograph series (NAF; first published in 1889). We welcome submissions to both journals from all scientists—from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service or otherwise. These journals are in the public domain and electronic, from submission through review and online publication (paper copies are not distributed). There are no page charges for authors and access is unlimited and free of charge.

We apologize to our readers. The links in the "Supplemental Material" section of published papers are currently not working (online and PDF versions) due to a problem with our host platform. They are working on the issue and expect to have the links working again soon. However, please note, if you scroll to the very bottom of the online version (not the PDF) of any paper, the links in the "Supplemental data" section are working. Please direct questions to Jonathan Lantz at
