Dear Delegate

Author Guidelines for UK & Ireland Regional Environmental Enrichment Conference Proceedings 


The SHAPE—UK & Ireland committee publish all REEC proceedings which can be downloaded for free from the Shape of Enrichment Inc. website. It is our policy to publish the oral presentation, posters, video abstracts, and notes from other major topics (e.g. panel discussions) occurring during the conference.


These proceedings are not peer-reviewed. We understand that many authors wish to publish their scientific papers in a peer-reviewed journal. If that is the case, please consider submitting an extended abstract for the conference proceedings.

Guidelines for authors of papers and posters in this proceedings are below. For more information, contact the SHAPE—UK & Ireland committee.



All proceedings may be submitted via e-mail or posted to the address below. Please be sure to include your e-mail, telephone number, and other contact information. All submissions will be confirmed via email.
