The year 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of eco.mont – Journal on Protected Mountain Areas Research and Management.
Since protected areas in mountain regions want not only to preserve valuable natural assets but also to promote and to develop strategies for sustainable development, it was the journal’s goal from the outset to provide insights into ecological, cultural and economic diversity in mountain protected areas.
To celebrate our 10th anniversary, we invited authors to write reports on mountain research in their country, a mountain region or a National Park. In a special section of this issue, therefore, we are pleased to publish an article by Morten Clemetsen & Knut Bjørn Stokke on Norway, one that focuses on the Carpathians by Juraj Švajda, and a paper by Christian Komposch & Daniel Kreiner on research in the Gesäuse National Park (Austria). In addition, the editorial team of the journal Mountain Research and Development (MRD) provide an overview of areas of research covered in academic journals that focus on mountain areas.
