John Wiley and Sons Ltd

Publication Date



This first issue of the journal of Ecology of Freshwater Fish (EFF) was published in September 1992, a creation of Dr's Erik Mortensen and Javier Lobón-Cerviá. During the 25 years that has passed since then, Javier has been the editor in chief, handling a large number of submissions. He oversaw the operations of EFF, and helped grow the journal, increasing it in both importance and impact. Over this time, the scientific community has also observed a dramatic and rapid change in publication strategies, with the focus moving from paper to digital publication. The number of submissions has also increased, and since 2006 onwards on average 200 submissions have been handled per year.
