The Science Report Series (SR) disseminates information, analysis, and results of scientific studies and related topics concerning resources and lands managed by the National Park Service. The series supports the advancement of science, informed decisionmaking, and the achievement of the National Park Service mission. Examples of reports suitable for the series include:

  • Reports that present quantifiable data, data analysis, and interpretive discussion, including reports on natural resource inventories, monitoring, condition assessments, and other research studies,

  • Planning reports, such as monitoring or data management, or resource management plans,

  • Any report with a significant focus on NPS policy, land management, or resource 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. SR reports are not juried under anonymous peer-review procedures.
