The journal, Coral Reefs, is intended to be a focal point for multidisciplinary literature across the broad fields of reef studies. It publishes analytical and theoretical papers on both modern and ancient reefs, and encourages the search for theories about reef structure and dynamics, and the use of experimentation, modelling, quantification and the applied sciences.
Some of the subject areas covered by the journal include:
The journal accepts full length papers (Reports) and short papers (Notes). Review articles are also welcomed but authors should consult the Editor in Chief about the proposed subject and length before submission.
