Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association

Peer Review:

The WIOJMS has an Editorial Board of regional specialists.  On receipt of submissions, these are briefly scrutinised by the Chief Editor. If appropriate, manuscripts are referred directly to two independent reviewers or through a member of the Editorial Board. Manuscripts that cannot be considered for publication are returned immediately, speeding up the process for authors that wish to pursue publication in other journals. Depending on the outcome of the reviews, manuscripts are accepted, rejected or referred back to the authors for amendment before final acceptance for publication.

Manuscripts covering all aspects of marine science or coastal management in the region will be considered as articles, reviews or short communications (notes). While submissions on tropical and subtropical waters of the western Indian Ocean and the Red Sea will be given primary consideration, articles from other regions of direct interest to the western Indian Ocean will also be considered.
