Marine Science also called Oceanography , is the branch of Earth science that studies the ocean. It covers a wide range of topics, including marine organisms and ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor; and fluxes of various chemical substances and physical properties within the ocean and across its boundaries.

This journal supplies a focal point for the hitherto scattered literature in this rapidly expanding field of reef studies, publishing analytical and theoretical papers on both modern and ancient reefs. It encourages the search for generalizations about reef structure and dynamics, and reflects the growing awareness among reef workers of the importance of experimentation, modeling, quantification and applied science in reef studies.

The Journal of Fish Biology is a leading international journal for scientists engaged in all aspects of fish and fisheries research, both freshwater and marine. The journal publishes high-quality papers relevant to the central theme of fish biology and aims to bring together under one cover an overall picture of the research in progress and to provide international communication among researchers in many disciplines with a common interest in the biology of fish. Visit
The journal exists for the publication of research articles on the fluid dynamics of atmospheres and oceans and their interactions, on related basic dynamical processes, and on climatic and biogeochemical problems in which the fluid dynamics play an essential role. Theoretical, numerical, observational and laboratory studies are all welcome. Visit
Deep-Sea Research Part II: Topical Studies in Oceanography publishes topical issues from the many international and interdisciplinary projects which are undertaken in oceanography. Besides these special issues from projects, the journal publishes collections of papers presented at conferences. The special issues regularly have electronic annexes of non-text material (numerical data, images, images, video, etc.) which are published with the special issues in ScienceDirect. Deep-Sea Research Part II was split off as a separate journal devoted to topical issues in 1993. Its companion journal Deep-Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Research Papers, publishes the regular research papers in this area. Visit
The Journal of Crustacean Biology contains papers of broad interest dealing with any aspect of crustacean biology, biographies of notable carcinologists, notices of business transacted at meetings of The Crustacean Society, book reviews of works on Crustacea, and pertinent announcements Visit
The Journal of Animal Ecology first appeared in 1932. It publishes the best in original research on any aspect of animal ecology. Recently it has published papers on population ecology, behavioural ecology, community ecology, physiological ecology and evolutionary ecology. Field, laboratory and theoretical studies based upon terrestrial, freshwater or marine systems are all published. The editors are keen to promote all these traditional areas and also to encourage publication of papers in new and emerging fields such as molecular ecology. Visit
The American Fisheries Society publishes a suite of journals for aquatic resource professionals. These journals —Transactions of the American Fisheries Society, featuring papers on basic fisheries science; North American Journal of Fisheries Management, covering management research, experiences, and recommendations; North American Journal of Aquaculture, providing guidance for those who breed and raise aquatic animals; and Journal of Aquatic Animal Health, focusing on health maintenance and disease treatment—are available to AFS members, institutions, and libraries in both print and electronic formats. Visit
Continental Shelf Research publishes articles dealing with the physical oceanography, sedimentology, geology, chemistry, biology and ecology of the shallow marine environment, from coastal and estuarine water out to the shelf break. Papers that are published present results from both fundamental, original research as well as applied, or directed research. Visit
Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems is an international journal dedicated to publishing original papers that relate specifically to freshwater, brackish or marine habitats and encouraging work that spans these ecosystems. This journal provides a forum in which all aspects of the conservation of aquatic biological resources can be presented and discussed, enabling greater cooperation and efficiency in solving problems in aquatic resource conservation. Visit
Aquatic Toxicology publishes original scientific papers dealing with the mechanisms of toxicity in aquatic environments and the understanding of responses to toxic agents at community, species, tissue, cellular and subcellular level, including aspects of uptake, metabolism and excretion of toxicants; understanding effects of toxic substances on aquatic ecosystems; toxicant-induced alterations in organisms as evinced, for example, through biochemical and physiological reactions, including adaptive responses; the development of procedures and techniques that significantly advance the understanding of processes and events that produce toxic effects; in-depth studies of human health aspects of aquatic toxicology. Visit
Deep-Sea Research Part I: Oceanographic Research Papers is devoted to the publication of the results of original scientific research, the solution of instrumental problems, and new laboratory methods in the marine sciences. It is unique in the field of oceanography in its interdisciplinary approach covering a wide variety of subjects related to the geological, physical, mathematical, chemical and biological aspects of the ocean, the sea floor and the boundary layer between the atmosphere and the ocean. Papers that are particularly timely or topical may receive accelerated editorial response and publication as Rapid Response Papers. Visit
