Virtual Issue: Open Access week 2014

 October 2014
To coincide with the 7th Annual International Open Access Week, we are delighted to bring together a selection of recent open access papers published in Functional Ecology. All five British Ecological Society Journals have produced a Virtual Issue for Open Access Week 2014. Please click on the issue covers below to read the Virtual Issues. All of these papers have been published through the Online Open programme. The British Ecological Society offers its members a 25% discount towards the cost of the Online Open scheme.
