Park Science is a research and resource management journal of the U.S. National Park Service. It reports the implications of recent and ongoing natural and social science and related cultural research for park planning, management, and policy. Seasonal issues are published usually in spring and fall, with a thematic issue that explores a topic in depth published in summer or winter. The publication serves a broad audience of national park and protected area managers and scientists and provides for public outreach. It is funded by the Associate Director for Natural Resource Stewardship and Science.

Articles are field-oriented accounts of applied research and resource management presented in nontechnical language. The editor and board or subject-matter experts review content for clarity, completeness, usefulness, scientific and technical soundness, and relevance to NPS policy.
