Special Issues  
       

Why Choose Bulletin of Marine Science for Your Conference Proceedings or Special Issue?

D
issemination to the scientific community: Institutional subscribers distributed throughout 50 countries. The Bulletin's content is also abstracted and indexed by all major indexing services.

Convenience: Guest editors can coordinate with the Editorial Office for online submission of contributions, either prior to the meeting or at a later date. Our online submission system allows authors to submit manuscripts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from any location, facilitates the review process, and streamlines communication with contributors. Authors have the ability to check on the status of their manuscript at anytime as it proceeds through the review process and guest editors can easily monitor the progress of all special issue manuscripts through the submission/peer review process.

F
lexibility: Most special issues will contain a minimum of 10 to 15 articles. If the special issue will have fewer than 10 manuscripts, the Bulletin reserves the right to move the papers to a regular issue of the journal. In this case, a “special section” will be created to separate special-issue articles from other regular articles appearing in the same volume.

T
he opportunity to bring creativity to your publication. Examples include the inclusion of foldout maps, companion books, and the opportunity to add supplementary data to online articles or to the whole special issue including text files (TXT, RTF, DOC), HTML files, images (GIF, JPEG, BMP), PowerPoint® presentations, PDFs, and movies.

No page limit for individual articles. This feature is useful for review articles or invited keynote articles, both common in conferences and symposia.

W
ell-established international journal with increasing impact in field. ISI 5-year Impact Factor: 2.263 (2016).

O
nline publication ahead of print: FastTrack™ publishing enables manuscripts to be available to the scientific community as soon as possible. In most cases, a manuscript is “live” within 72 hours after the galley proof is received, reducing the risk of delay that may be caused by the print process or by the coordination of numerous manuscripts for special issues. Authors are notified by email that their paper is available in FastTrack.

C
omplimentary print or electronic issues provided to all senior authors. Unlimited additional copies available at reduced cost.
