Ocean Dynamics is an international journal that aims to publish high-quality peer-reviewed articles in the following areas of research:

  • Theoretical oceanography (new theoretical concepts that further system understanding with a strong view to applicability for operational or monitoring purposes)
  • Computational oceanography (all aspects of ocean modeling and data analysis)
  • Observational oceanography (new techniques or systematic approaches in measuring oceanic variables, including all aspects of monitoring the state of the ocean)
  • Articles with an interdisciplinary character that encompass research in the fields of biological, chemical and physical oceanography are especially encouraged.

If you are a corresponding author affiliated with a German university or research institution, you are entitled to publish open access in our journals with fees covered by the German DEAL agreement.

More than 900 German institutions are eligible to participate in the agreement between Springer Nature and Projekt DEAL, meaning that corresponding authors* affiliated with these institutions are eligible to publish their articles open access without being invoiced by Springer Nature. The agreement includes more than 2,000 hybrid journals across the Springer Nature portfolio (from January 2020) and more than 500 fully OA journals (from August 2020).

91% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again
