British Islands Bats

British Islands Bats is an online journal for publishing the results of bat work across the British Islands (England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, Channel Islands, and Isle of Man). It evolved from two earlier journals, no longer in production, Scottish Bats and Northern Bats.

Its principal aim is to publish an annual on-line journal, recording information about bats and bat work across the British Islands thereby providing a forum for information that might not otherwise be published, from full-length papers to brief notes on items of interest. British Islands Bats will be wholly reliant on contributions from bat groups, other bat workers and students.

Volume Two is available now (PDF file size 11 MB). Tina Wiffen and Lisa Worledge (editors of British Islands Bats) are grateful for all of the articles received for the second edition.

For future editions they welcome contributions on any bat related projects across the British Islands. Please read the Notes for Contributors document and the House Style Guide before submitting anything. There is also a Microsoft Word template available for contributors to use, please email Tina and Lisa for a copy. (The deadline for contributions to Volume Three is the end of February 2022.)

Tina and Lisa are grateful to the Bat Conservation Trust for agreeing to host this page and the future volumes of British Islands Bats.

If you have any questions about the new journal or would like to enquire about submitting an article please email Tina and Lisa.
