Journal of Marine Science is a peer-reviewed, open-access academic journal specializing in the field of marine science research. Even after thousands of years, scientists have yet to fully uncover the mysteries of the world’s water bodies. 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

Abstract: Surfaces submerged in seawater are colonized by various microorganisms, resulting in the formation of heterogenic marine biofilms. This work aims to evaluate the biofilm formation by Cobetia marina alex and doing a comparative study between this promising strain with the two bacterial strains iso...

Abstract: We use the excellent sediment recovery of International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Exp. 363, in the Western Pacific Warm Pool (WPWP) to assess down-core variations in the abundance of warm versus cool benthic foraminiferal species through a warm benthic foraminifers (WBF) curve. The total per...

Abstract: In coastal areas of our country, in spite of having excess rainfall (more than 3000 mm), groundwater become a rare commodity during summer. Number of researchers have discussed the issues related to water scarcity of coastal areas where there is a huge pressure on environment due to increased pop...

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.
