Scope

MEPS is international and interdisciplinary. It presents rigorously refereed and carefully selected Research Articles, Reviews and Notes, as well as Comments/Reply Comments (for details see MEPS 228:1), Theme Sections and Opinion Pieces. For details consult Guidelines for Authors. Papers may be concerned with: -Environmental factors: Tolerances and responses of marine organisms (microorganisms, autotrophic plants and animals) to variations in abiotic and biotic components of their environment; radioecology. -Physiological-ecological mechanisms: Auto- and heterotrophy; thermo-, ion-, osmo- and volume-regulation; stress resistance; population genetics and ecological genome research; orientation in space and time; migrations; behavior; chemical ecology. -Molecular Marine Ecology: Molecular basis of ecological processes. -Cultivation: Maintenance and rearing of, as well as experimentation with, marine organisms under environmental and nutritional conditions which are, to a considerable degree, controlled; analysis of the physiological and ecological potential of individuals, populations and species; determination of nutritional requirements; ecological aspects of aquaculture; water-quality management; culture technology. -Dynamics: Marine ecosystems; flow patterns of energy and matter as these pass through organisms, populations and ecosystems; biodiversity; trophic interrelations; production, transformation and decomposition of organic matter; plankton ecology; benthos ecology; estuarine and coastal ecology; wadden-sea ecology; coral-reef ecology; deep-sea ecology; open-ocean ecology; polar ecology; theoretical ecology; ecological methodology and technology; ecological modelling and computer simulation. -Ocean management[...] Join the conversation about this journal
Quartiles

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

SJR

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
