Ecotoxicology and contaminant bioaccumulation: Studies on the effects of pollutants, contaminants, and environmental stressors on aquatic invertebrates, including assessments of toxicity, bioaccumulation, biomagnification, and the sublethal effects of pollutants on invertebrate physiology, behavior, and population dynamics.

Climate change impacts and resilience: Research on the impacts of climate change on aquatic invertebrates and their habitats, including studies on phenological shifts, distributional changes, physiological responses, and adaptive strategies of invertebrates to changing environmental conditions.

Invasive species ecology and management: Investigations into the ecology, impacts, and management strategies of invasive aquatic invertebrates, including studies on the ecological consequences of invasions, invasion pathways, spread mechanisms, and control measures for invasive species.

Citizen science and community engagement: Exploration of citizen science initiatives, community-based monitoring programs, and participatory research approaches involving public engagement in the study, conservation, and management of aquatic invertebrates and their habitats.

Molecular ecology and genomics: Research on the application of molecular techniques, genomic tools, and DNA barcoding methods for studying population genetics, phylogeography, phylogenetics, and molecular ecology of aquatic invertebrates.

Restoration ecology and habitat enhancement: Studies on restoration ecology techniques, habitat enhancement strategies, and ecosystem-based approaches for rehabilitating degraded aquatic habitats, including the reintroduction of native species, habitat creation, and ecosystem restoration projects.

Socio-ecological systems and stakeholder engagement: Investigations into the interactions between human communities and aquatic invertebrate ecosystems, including studies on traditional ecological knowledge, local ecological practices, and the integration of social and ecological perspectives in aquatic conservation and management.

Interdisciplinary approaches and synthesis studies: Promotion of interdisciplinary collaborations, synthesis studies, and meta-analyses that integrate data, concepts, and methodologies from multiple disciplines to address complex research questions and inform evidence-based decision-making in aquatic invertebrate science and management.

Emerging challenges and future directions: Exploration of emerging challenges, research gaps, and future directions in the study of aquatic invertebrates, including the application of new technologies, interdisciplinary approaches, and innovative solutions to address pressing conservation and management issues.

The Aquatic Invertebrates and Ecosystem Research welcomes original research articles, reviews, perspectives, and short communications that contribute to advancing knowledge and understanding of aquatic invertebrates and their roles in aquatic ecosystems. The journal encourages interdisciplinary collaboration and welcomes submissions from researchers, academics, and practitioners worldwide. By providing a platform for the dissemination of scientific research and promoting dialogue among scientists, the journal aims to support the conservation and sustainable management of aquatic invertebrates and their habitats for future generations.
