Continuous Article Publishing

As of 2020, Marine Biodiversity will change its publication structure from paginated issues to a consecutive publishing model: Continuous Article Publishing.

This means that papers are published in a volume/issue immediately after acceptance and printed within 2 months at most after being published online. As a further aspect of the new system, articles are no longer paginated sequentially by issue. Therefore, every article starts with page number 1. Page numbers are not used for article citation but every article has a citation ID number, called the ArticleCitationID. The ArticleCitationID is replacing the page numbers in the citation line, which includes the journal citation title, year, volume number and ArticleCitationID now .

Example: Mar Biodiv (2020) 50: 12

This method of citation is accepted by the Web of Science/Journal Citation Reports (ISI).

Marine Biodiversity is a peer-reviewed international journal devoted to all aspects of biodiversity research on marine ecosystems. The journal is a relaunch of the well-known Senckenbergiana maritima" and covers research at gene, species and ecosystem level that focuses on describing the actors (genes and species), the patterns (gradients and distributions) and understanding of the processes responsible for the regulation and maintenance of diversity in marine systems. Also included are the study of species interactions (symbioses, parasitism, etc.) and the role of species in structuring marine ecosystem functioning.

Marine Biodiversity offers articles in the category original paper, short note, Oceanarium and review article. It forms a platform for marine biodiversity researchers from all over the world for the exchange of new information and discussions on concepts and exciting discoveries.
