¡¡¡¡ Featured columns in the journal include ¡®operations research and cybernetics,¡¯ ¡®animal sciences,¡¯ ¡®resource, environment and ecology researches in Three Gorges Area'. These represent some of the university¡¯s main research fields considered to be ¡®National leading¡¯. Titles of the articles included in these three columns are printed on the journal cover both in Chinese and English as the principal points of every issue. Articles are from Chinese domestic as well as foreign authors. Sometimes important articles are published in English or bilingually. For example, we published a whole issue on the ecology of the Three Gorges Reservoir bilingually in No.3 2012. This report was derived from presentations at an international symposium. We publish this kind of issue once a year as part of our publishing plan.
