The journal is dedicated to the presentation of the discoveries and insights in marine science research.

The scope of the Journal of Marine Science includes, but is not limited to:

  • Marine ecosystem
  • Nearshore and ocean circulation
  • Ocean floor dynamics
  • Marine geology
  • Chemical oceanography
  • Physical oceanography
  • Operational oceanography
  • Met-ocean data measurements and analysis
  • Climate change effects in marine and coastal environment

Congratulations to Dr. M. Pilar Cabezas on her appointment as the Associate Editor of Journal of Marine Science


Currently, Dr. M. Pilar Cabezas is a post-Doc researcher at the University of Porto, hired under the project “SARDINOMICS – Development of molecular tools to improve knowledge and management of Sardine stocks”, where I am using Next Generation Sequencing to improve knowledge and management of sardine stocks.
Her main research interest is to obtain a more comprehensive knowledge on marine biodiversity and to investigate the impact that cryptic species and biological invasions may have on our perception about it.
With the joint efforts of the entire editorial team, Journal of Marine Science will soon become an excellent journal in the field of marine science.
