Springer Verlag Germany
Unfortunately this journal has not been claimed yet. For this reason, some information may be unavailable.

CALLS FOR PAPERS: Topical Collection: The Impact of Marine Plastic Debris on Life in the Sea Topical Collection: Global change and interactions within marine pelagic food webs: current trends and future perspectives Topical Collection: Advances in Cephalopod Research See details under Journal Updates / Call for Papers Marine Biology publishes original and internationally significant contributions from all fields of marine biology. Special emphasis is given to articles which promote the understanding of life in the sea, organism-environment interactions, interactions between organisms, and the functioning of the marine biosphere. While original research articles are the backbone of Marine Biology, method articles, reviews and comments are also welcome, provided that they meet the same originality, importance and quality criteria as research articles. Articles of exceptional significance are published as highlight articles. They are accompanied by an editorial comment, and they are promoted in social media. Aspects of particular interest include: marine biogeochemistry ecology of marine populations and communities marine ecophysiology behavioural biology of marine organisms development and life cycles of marine organisms biochemistry and physiology of marine organisms evolution of marine organisms population genetics of marine organisms marine conservation technology developments in marine biology global change ecology of marine organisms marine invasion ecology marine biodiversity   Irrespective of the area, preference will be given to articles contributing to the advancement of growing research areas and/or the solution of present day theoretical debates. Why publish in Marine Biology The journal’s diverse and international editorial board includes representation across many sub-specialties of research The journal welcomes authors to collaborate and contribute to special topical collections and supplements for consideration There are no page charges nor color illustration charges, and all papers accepted for publication are published online on average within 20 days The journal is indexed by Clarivate in the Marine & Freshwater Biology category and has an impact factor of 2.941 It has an SJR impact factor of 0,74.

Marine Biology focuses its scope in these topics and keywords: larval, growth, marine, food, oyster, pelagic, sinking, size, species, system, ...
