Scope The Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology provides a forum for experimental ecological research on marine organisms in relation to their environment. Topic areas include studies that focus on biochemistry, physiology, behavior, genetics, and ecological theory. The main emphasis of the Journal lies in hypothesis driven experimental work, both from the laboratory and the field. Natural experiments or descriptive studies that elucidate fundamental ecological processes are welcome. Submissions should have a broad ecological framework beyond the specific study organism or geographic region. Short communications that highlight emerging issues and exciting discoveries within five printed pages will receive a rapid turnaround. Papers describing important new analytical, computational, experimental and theoretical techniques and methods are encouraged and will be highlighted as Methodological Advances. We welcome proposals for Review Papers synthesizing a specific field within marine ecology. Finally, the journal aims to publish Special Issues at regular intervals synthesizing a particular field of marine science. All printed papers undergo a peer review process before being accepted and will receive a first decision within three months.

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.
