At Oryx we work hard to support our authors before, during and after publication. We offer waivers and discounts to authors who lack the funds to pay for open access publication, and we provide a number of resources, including manuscript templates for your writing, a guide to help you prepare and refine your manuscript and figures prior to submission, and links to useful tools and resources for analysis, research and writing.
Guidelines for authors
Manuscripts need to be presented in a clear and consistent format to facilitate peer review. Check these Guidelines before submitting any material to us, and use our time-saving manuscript templates.
Submit your manuscript
Finished your manuscript? Check whether your text and graphics are presented appropriately, and that you have everything to hand for the submission process.
Writing for Conservation
How can you communicate your ideas and findings in a way that is both informative and interesting? What is the best way to prepare publication-quality maps and data plots? Read our guidance for structuring your writing, presenting your data, managing your references, and creating beautiful graphics that support your writing.
Tools and resources
Software for research, analysis and writing can be costly to purchase, but free and/or Open Source software is often as good as, and sometimes better, than the commercial equivalent. Browse our recommendations for some of the best research and analysis software, data sources and writing and referencing tools.
Promoting your research
