The Journal of Marine Research is the new home of The Sea

The Journal of Marine Research is an online peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research on a broad array of topics in physical, biological and chemical oceanography.

 

Articles that deal with processes, as well as those that report significant observations, are welcome. Biological studies involving coupling between ecological and physical processes are preferred over those that report systematics.

 

Authors benefit from thorough peer review of their manuscripts that maximize clarity, no page charges, full online discoverability, and the retention of copyright ownership. See our Guide for Authors page for our full editorial policies and submission requirements.

 

Readers benefit from the Journal of Marine Research‘s unique niche within the ocean sciences, with a rich tradition and distinguished history going back to 1937. Published by the Sears Foundation for Marine Research at Yale University, the Journal of Marine Research is one of the oldest journals in American marine science and has published important research in physical, biological and chemical oceanography.

 

We strive always to serve the academic oceanographic community by publishing papers that are vital to the marine research in the long and rich tradition of the Sears Foundation for Marine Research. We welcome you to the Journal of Marine Research.

 

NEW! THE SEA

The editors are pleased to announce that the Journal of Marine Research is the new home of future contributions to the oceanographic series The Sea, to be published as occasional supplements. Watch our website for information new titles in the series.
