Instructions for authors


Criteria for manuscripts

The Editorial Board of Oceanologia takes under consideration for publication original articles with the understanding that neither the manuscript nor any part of its essential substance, tables or figures have been published previously in print form or electronically and are not under consideration by any other publication or electronic medium. Copies of any closely related manuscripts should be submitted to the Editor along with the manuscript that is to be considered by Oceanologia. Each submission packet should include the statement signed by the first author that the work has not been published previously or submitted elsewhere for review and a copyright transfer.

The journal Oceanologia publishes original papers on fundamental aspects of marine research with the emphasis on northern European seas. Papers dealing with processes in the marine environment are preferred to purely descriptive ones; they should contribute to the understanding of the functioning of marine ecosystems, including their abiotic aspects. Please note that purely descriptive articles/ papers do not meet the aims of Oceanologia. All scripts received will be reviewed by the editors and at least two independent experts. The scripts should be written in good, scientific English: American or British. Every effort will be made to expedite publication.
