Migres (ISSN 1889-7134) Ecology Journal is the scientific journal of the Foundation Migres. The journal publishes original and unpublished papers on ecology in the Strait of Gibraltar (Campo de Gibraltar, Comarca de La Janda, Ceuta, Gibraltar and Morocco – Tangier-Tetouan regions) but may be considered the inclusion of papers of other geographical areas.
Its structure is the classic of scientific journals of the specialty, hinges on articles, short notes and a forum, and remains based on a traditional paper format, although it will have a version online, of free distribution, through this website.
