Marine & Freshwater Research is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes original and significant research on all aquatic environments. The journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts in subject areas including biology and ecology, biogeochemistry, biogeography and phylogeography, hydrology, oceanography, toxicology, aquatic ecosystem processes such as nutrient cycling, and management of aquatic ecosystems. Environments range from groundwaters, wetlands and streams to estuaries, rocky shores, coral reefs, and the open ocean.
Papers that address broad conceptual questions, are interdisciplinary and of wide interest, and that consider further implications and management applications are especially encouraged, given the Journal´s broad scope. Specialist papers at the forefront of their field are also welcome as long as their context is clearly stated. Descriptive papers may be considered if they are placed in an appropriate conceptual setting and have global relevance. However, papers that are purely taxonomic, parochial, describe preliminary or incremental results, or simply present data without context will not be considered.
Research can be presented as Full Papers, Reviews, Short Communications, or Comments and Replies. Groups of authors with ideas for a series of 3-7 related papers that might be packaged as part of a single issue as a Special Feature should directly contact the Editors with a proposal. Key and invited papers from conferences are also published as Special Issues comprising a full volume of Marine & Freshwater Research.
