SIL’s newsletter

SILnews is an informal information medium for SIL members and limnologists in general. Its purpose is to promote the exchange of news and views not only among limnologists, but also to our wider communities interested in water related issues. The newsletter is published twice a year, in January and July.


SILnews has a broad and general scope that reflects the interests of its membership. The editor accepts contributions on a wide range of limnological issues regarding all types of inland waters, from short research and review articles to opinions, book reviews, announcements and reports from scientific workshops and conferences, to obituaries of recently deceased colleagues.
