  • The official journal of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation
  • Covers aspects of research on physical, chemical, geological or biological systems, as well as management of those systems, at the interface between the land and the sea
  • Publishes original research findings, reviews, techniques, and comments
  • 91% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

Estuaries and Coasts is the journal of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation. Begun in 1977 as Chesapeake Science, the journal has gradually expanded its scope and circulation. Today, the journal publishes manuscripts on ecosystems at the interface between the land and the sea, covering aspects of research on physical, chemical, geological or biological systems, as well as applications to management of those ecosystems. The interface is broadly defined to include estuaries and nearshore coastal waters including lagoons, wetlands, tidal rivers, shorelands, and beaches. The journal publishes original research findings, reviews and perspectives, techniques, comments, and management applications. Submissions that are primarily descriptive, strongly place-based, or report on development of models or new methods without detailing their applications fall outside the scope of the journal.

    Estuaries and Coasts is the journal of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation. It publishes original research on the hydrodynamics, hydrology, (geo)chemistry, geology, biology and their interactions in marine waters influenced by connectivity to land. The journal's geographic scope includes coastal watersheds, tidal rivers, estuaries, lagoons, inland seas, wetlands, and near-shore coastal waters from polar to equatorial latitudes. The Editors encourage submissions that present novel approaches, findings or concepts of general interest to better understand the functioning and structure of coastal systems and will interest the journal's increasingly international readership. Submissions that are primarily descriptive, strongly place based, or report on development of models or new methods without detailing their applications fall outside the scope of the journal.

    Manuscripts will be judged on the basis of their contribution of original data, ideas and interpretation. Only material intended for publication in Estuaries and Coasts will be considered. Manuscripts must be written in English but may have an abstract in an alternate language when appropriate. Manuscripts will be reviewed by a member of the Editorial Board and by at least two anonymous reviewers.
