Aims and Scope


SOIL ORGANISMS presents high-level research results, review papers and short notes covering the complete field of soil biology, including taxonomy and systematics, soil ecology, biogeography, morphologyy, conservation and evolution with a special focus on soil animals. Unique among soil-biological journals, Soil Organisms especially considers the organismic aspects of soil biology, stressing the species level even in community-ecological research.

All contributions are in English. All submitted articles are reviewed in a blind reviewing process by at least two international referees prior to publication.
