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. Every effort will be made to expedite publication.
The LAYOUT of the article should be as follows:
The revised version must also be supplied in electronic form as a MS Word files – text + figures separately.
COMMUNICATIONS are restricted to papers describing brief but complete studies. They should not exceed three(3) printed pages in length (including figures and tables), should always begin with an abstract and should be written without subdivision into introduction, material and methods, results, discussion or acknowledgments.
TABLES should be typed on separate sheets, numbered with Arabic numerals, with a brief title above each table.
FIGURES and other illustrative material must be suitable for high-quality reproduction. After revision all figures should be sent separately in one of the vector formats available through the use of programs like CorelDraw, Excel, SigmaPlot, Surfer, Statistica etc. CDR (v.7-15) and WMF formats are preferred.
REFERENCES should be listed on a separate sheet in alphabetical order of authors' names. In the text they should be ordered by year and referred to by name and year, the year being placed in parentheses, e.g. Wiktor (1985) or (Wiktor 1985, Morel 1990); when a work by more than two authors is referred to, the name of the first author should be followed by "et al." At the end of the text the names and initials of all authors should be given;
for periodicals: the title in accordance with the World List of Scientific Periodicals, the volume and issue number, and the first and last page numbers of the paper are required, e.g.
