Scope A bilingual open-access publication, Ciencias Marinas (CM) is an international peer-reviewed journal that contains original research findings in all areas of marine science. It is published quarterly by the Autonomous University of Baja California, Mexico, and all its contents are publicly available on our journal website. Though a limited number of copies are still printed, the journal is mainly distributed in its electronic format. CM was conceived in 1973 as part of an academic project aimed to entice local researchers to publicly disclose their findings by adopting the culture of peer-review publishing. This academic project evolved into an international journal after accepting papers from researchers in the United States and, eventually, other parts of the world. Because of the diversity in authorship, CM issues were initially published in either Spanish or English, and occasionally in both languages. It was not until 1984 when CM included both language versions of all its contents, and it then became the fully bilingual journal it still is today. At CM we believe our inclusive format allows us not only to address a wider range of submissions from international authors but also to make published findings available to a wider international audience. So whether you are looking for information on the redfish in Icelandic waters or the physical and biological properties of the Gulf of California, feel free to peruse CM contents. You may find them to provide source material for your research.

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.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.

Citable documents 
Non-citable documents

Not every article in a journal is considered primary research and therefore "citable", this chart shows the ratio of a journal's articles including substantial research (research articles, conference papers and reviews) in three year windows vs. those documents other than research articles, reviews and conference papers.
