As a result of the recently conducted ECSA 58 – EMECS 13 Online Conference organized jointly by the Estuarine and Coastal Sciences Association (ECSA) and the International Center for Environmental Management of Enclosed Coastal Seas (EMECS) and held in September 2021, there are two Special Issues (SI) of the journals ‘Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science‘ (ECSS) and ‘Ocean & Coastal Management‘ (OCMA) now open for submissions.
The Special Issue of ECSS is titled “Structure, functions and services of estuaries and coastal seas in the Anthropocene“ and is guest-edited by Anita Franco, Jonathan Dale, and Masataka Watanabe. On the other hand, the Special Issue of OCMA is titled “Towards the sustainability of estuaries and coastal seas in the Anthropocene: Governance and management perspectives” and is guest-edited by Lysann Schneider.
Please note that not only manuscripts of conference contributions, both oral and poster, are invited, but also manuscripts that were not presented during the conference, but fall under the themes mentioned in the calls.
The advantage of publishing in a Special Issue is that individual papers get more citations than in a regular issue, as statistics of ECSS show.
