How to publish in this journal


BM - Cahiers de Biologie Marine publishes papers on all aspects of the biology of marine organisms and of biological oceanography, in particular in the following fields: Benthic and planktonic Ecology; Ecophysiology; Population dynamics and Population genetics; Food webs; Systematics and Phylogeny. The key criteria are that the work clearly demonstrates its novelty, its importance to a particular field as well as its interest to those outside that discipline, and conclusions that are justified by the study. Reviews on current topics are welcome. Selected papers or abstracts from international symposia or workshops may also be considered. Short communications (4 printed pages) may also be published. Papers must be original and must not have been published or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. They will be reviewed by at least two referees before acceptance for publication. Short note about new record could be accepted only if this one significantly increases the distribution area of the species and if the paper includes a discussion about the general distribution of the species and the significance of the observed range extension.

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.
