Aims and Scope
Hydrobiologia publishes original research, reviews and opinions regarding the biology of all aquatic environments, including the impact of human activities. We welcome molecular-, organism-, community- and ecosystem-level studies in contributions dealing with limnology and oceanography, including systematics and aquatic ecology. Hypothesis-driven experimental research is preferred, but also theoretical papers or articles with large descriptive content will be considered, provided they are made relevant to a broad hydrobiological audience. Applied aspects will be considered if firmly embedded in an ecological context.

Verified Reviews

This submission process was quite fast. The review period for each submission is approximately 25 days, less than a month. However, it was still quite frustrating as it required three revisions in total. The editors hold significant power as they can invite other reviewers if the editor approves but the reviewers do not. The review process is very detailed, and the comments provided are constructive and valuable. Overall, it is a good journal.

As for the journal's classification, the advanced version has been upgraded to the second tier, while the basic version has been downgraded to the third tier. It is quite perplexing as to what the final classification will be.

I feel that the speed is very slow. The acceptance rate on the journal's website is 25%, and it is classified as a level 2 journal in the Chinese Academy of Sciences' subcategory and level 3 journal in the main category. The cost-effectiveness is not very high. This is my first time submitting to this journal, so I don't know how reputable it is.
