Park Science is a research and resource management journal of the U.S. National Park Service. It reports the implications of recent and ongoing natural and social science and related cultural research for park planning, management, and policy. Seasonal issues are published usually in spring and fall, with a thematic issue that explores a topic in depth published annually in summer or winter. The publication serves a broad audience of national park and protected area managers and scientists and provides public outreach. It is funded by the Associate Director for Natural Resource Stewardship and Science.
Articles are field-oriented accounts of applied research and resource management topics that are presented in nontechnical language. They translate scientific findings into usable knowledge for park planning and the development of sound management practices for natural resources and visitor enjoyment. The editor and board or subject-matter experts review content for clarity, completeness, usefulness, scientific and technical soundness, and relevance to NPS policy.
Facts and views expressed in Park Science are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect opinions or policies of the National Park Service. Mention of trade names or commercial products does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by the National Park Service.
