Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Geological oceanography has remained an important direction of international research, and the related investigations have significantly extended our understanding of the marginal seas and open oceans. On the one hand, these investigations add a geological time dimension to oceanography. On the other hand, they facilitate tracing the links between water objects and solid Earth, its dynamics, and life evolution. The scope of this Special issue includes (but is not limited to) the following topics: marine geology, palaeoceanographic reconstructions and modeling, living and ancient marine organisms of all groups and ages, tectonic evolution of marine settings, marine geophysics and geochemistry, deep sea sediments, coastal processes, ocean dynamics, and marine resources (ores, hydrocarbons, and geoheritage). Topics such as stratigraphical correlations, geological hazards, and human influence as a geological force (if linked to marine environments) also fit the scope of this Special Issue. The most methodologically innovative and internationally appealing contributions are welcome. These can be both global and regional in scope, and these can deal with all time periods—from the Archean to the Quaternary. It is expected that these research and review papers will mark the recent advances in geological oceanography and indicate new ideas, problems, and methods of investigation.

It is hoped that will be a dynamic Special Issue, and articles will be published as soon as the Reviewers and Editors are ready to accept them, without waiting for the final deadline for the Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
