The "Journal of Biogeography" (Blackwell Publishing), first published in 1974, is the leading international scientific journal in the subject of biogeography. Papers dealing with all aspects of spatial, ecological and historical biogeography are considered for publication. Its mission is stated as follows: "... to contribute to the growth and societal relevance of the discipline of biogeography through its role in the dissemination of biogeographical research. To that end, the editorial policy is that the journal seeks to be representative of the discipline of biogeography, to be global in scope, and to be inclusive of major traditions and viewpoints within the discipline." The founding editor was Dr. David Watts, followed by Professor John Flenley. Professor Philip Stott was Editor-in-Chief between 1987 and 2004. The current Editor-in-Chief is Professor Robert Whittaker.
