Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.983 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.171 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 2.933 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Marine Chemistry is an international medium for the publication of original studies and occasional reviews in the field of chemistry in the marine environment, with emphasis on the dynamic approach. The journal endeavours to cover all aspects, from chemical processes to theoretical and experimental work, and, by providing a central channel of communication, to speed the flow of information in this relatively new and rapidly expanding discipline.

Marine Chemistry publishes the following article types:

  • Research Paper - provides novel original data on a research topic in Marine Chemistry. These articles should strive to be transformative and broad-reaching in their scope.
  • Review Article - provides an extensive literature-based perspective on a topic in mare Chemistry. These article typically do not contain original data, if they are used to develop a broader scope of synthesis.
  • Perspective Article - provides a unique a viewpoint on an important research area in Marine Chemistry. These articles can be on past, current, and/or future trends, but differ from a Review Article in that they include an objective personal view on how this research has changed or perhaps should change. Perspective articles are solicited by the Editors, but unsolicited contributions are also welcome.
  • Technical Note - Notes are shorter versions of Research Papers that provide new data on new techniques but also can present exciting new results that the authors believe stands alone at an early stage in development.
