Symposium: Access and Benefit Sharing and Biological Control Genetic Resources
call closes when slots are filled
The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) was an outcome of the 1992 “Earth Summit” conference in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The third CBD objective, on access to genetic resources (GR) and benefit-sharing (ABS), is actioned through the Nagoya Protocol (NP). Biological control has provided global benefits. ABS policy that does not consider such ‘public good’ benefits will impede: 1) utilization and exchange of biological control GR; 2) perception that all biological control GR are used for commercial enterprise; and 3) response time for implementing biological control.
Journals participating in Peerage of Science
Available before, during and after the peer review process. All Select destinations have concurrent access to all ongoing peer review processes, and the right to make direct publishing offers to you. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
Available only after the peer review process is complete. Submission to a Connect destination exports the process exclusively and cancels any existing offers from The Select destinations (the traditional "no simultaneous consideration" policy). However, you can cancel export later by exporting to another Connect destination, or by returning the process to full availability. Note that journals may require additional in-house peer review.
You can create a link to the peer review process and give it to editors of any journal of your choice in a traditional submission. Using the link is a free service for both you and the receiving journal.
