The Natural Resource Report Series (NRR) publishes information and analysis about natural resources on lands managed by the National Park Service. Any peer-reviewed report about natural resources on NPS lands may be published in the NRR series. Examples include:
Reports that present quantifiable data, data analysis, and interpretive discussion, including reports on inventories, monitoring, and other research studies
Planning reports such as monitoring or data management plans
Any report with a significant focus on NPS policy or land management issues.
All manuscripts in the series receive an appropriate level of peer review to ensure that the information is scientifically credible, technically accurate, appropriately written for the intended audience, and designed and published in a professional manner. NRR reports are not juried under anonymous peer-review procedures.
Natural Resource Reports differ from the Natural Resource Data Series, which is intended for the timely release of basic data sets and data summaries.
