Elsevier Announces the Launch of a New Journal: Methods in Oceanography


Amsterdam, February 27, 2013Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of a new journal: Methods in Oceanography.

Published as a quarterly journal and adding to Elsevier’s Aquatic Sciences portfolio of journals, Methods in Oceanography will publish articles that focus on new methodology of oceanographic research.

“The journal is geared toward providing a venue for scientific and engineering research that advances sensing, modeling and the ultimate understanding of the multitude of processes that play a fundamental role in the chemistry, physics and biology of oceanic processes,” said Editor-in-Chief, Jules S. Jaffe Ph. D. of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (La Jolla, Ca, USA). “We also plan to publish so-called career narratives, authored by leading figures in oceanic methodology that will chronicle their role in the development of their field. These narratives will, hopefully, become cornerstones for understanding both the current state of research and what we might expect in the future.”

Luaine Bandounas, Publisher at Elsevier added, “Authors and readers will benefit from several enhanced presentation methods offered in the journal. For example, besides the traditional article, authors are encouraged to submit an audio recording of a lecture presentation which will be posted alongside the article, providing readers with an introduction and summary of the research.”

All articles published in the first issue are available on Science Direct
