|CCAMLR Science français / Русский / español|
|The first volume of the peer-reviewed
journal CCAMLR Science was published in 1994, with one volume
being published annually since that time. All articles in the journal
are presented in English with French, Russian and Spanish translations
of the abstracts and table and figure legends. These are the four
official languages of CCAMLR.
The journal publishes papers dealing with conservation and the rational use of biological resources of Antarctic waters, and covers numerous disciplines including the biology, ecology and population dynamics of marine species, ecological interactions and relevant issues related to fishery economics and management. The unique feature of the CAMLR Convention, which requires that fisheries management be based on an ‘ecosystem approach’, clearly distinguishes CCAMLR Science from other journals in its field.
The journal policy requires that all manuscripts submitted for
publication should first be presented to, and considered by, the
CCAMLR Scientific Committee and its working groups. By doing this, two
major goals are achieved: CCAMLR has immediate access to the results
of new studies and authors have the opportunity to take into account
comments from a wide range of scientists before their manuscripts are
sent to referees. In every other respect, our journal operates in a
similar manner to other specialist peer-reviewed scientific journals.
|In 2000, the journal was evaluated by
Thomson Scientific (formerly Thomson ISI) and selected for coverage
in Current Contents/Agriculture, Biology & Environmental Sciences
and ISI Journal Citation Reports.
The journal is currently distributed worldwide, free of charge, to all interested scientists, research institutes, fishing companies, international conservation and fisheries organisations and a number of national and international libraries.
The tables of contents of all volumes published so far are now linked to pdf files of original papers. When cited, a standard bibliographic reference to the journal is required for all papers downloaded from the site.
