ASLO and Duke University Press partner to launch Limnology and Oceanography: Fluids and Environments

February 19, 2010

Duke University Press and the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) partnered to launch the journal Limnology and Oceanography: Fluids and Environments. The journal, which will explore the link between fluid dynamics and aquatic system processes and will be offered in an online-only format, begins publication in late 2010.

Edited by Josef Daniel Ackerman at the University of Guelph, Limnology and Oceanography: Fluids and Environments will feature interdisciplinary limnology and oceanography research focusing on the interactions of fluid. To accommodate dynamic observations and model development, the journal will allow appendixes and supporting online materials such as databases and videos.

"We're looking forward to partnering with an academic publisher for Limnology and Oceanography: Fluids and Environments," says Carlos Duarte, ASLO president. "As a publisher of forty journals available electronically, Duke University Press brings significant expertise to our new online journal, as well as a shared mission to advance scholarship in the growing field of limnology and oceanography."

All members of ASLO will have free online access to the journal. Select articles will be open-access. Because the journal will be available in an online-only format, articles will be uploaded and published on a rolling basis throughout the year, where one year is equivalent to one journal volume. Libraries will receive access with an annual subscription.
Call for Papers

Limnology and Oceanography: Fluids and Environments is now accepting original articles and brief reviews that address research in any aspect of limnology and oceanography where advection and/or diffusion or the mechanics of the medium drive biological, chemical, or geological processes from molecular to global scales.
