In Practice Magazine

In Practice is CIEEM’s highly regarded quarterly membership publication. It is highly valued by our members and is integral to the work that we do to raise standards and share knowledge.

In Practice is published in March, June, September and December, and is circulated to all members, either in print or digitally. Discussion is promoted via social media and CIEEM’s website.

CIEEM members can access the last two years of In Practice publications in the members’ area (login at the top of the page) of the website. Editions older than two years are publicly available in the Resource Hub.

In Practice invites contributions on any aspect of ecology and environmental management but does not aim to publish scientific papers presenting the results of original research. Contributions should be sent to the Editor.

Potential authors should see deadlines below and also read the Guidance for Authors.
