ISSN / eISSN

Aims and Scope
Marine Environmental Research publishes original research papers on chemical, physical, and biological interactions in the oceans and coastal waters. The journal serves as a forum for new information on biology, chemistry, and toxicology and syntheses that advance understanding of marine environmental processes.

Submission of multidisciplinary studies is encouraged. Studies that utilize experimental approaches to clarify the roles of anthropogenic and natural causes of changes in marine ecosystems are especially welcome, as are those studies that represent new developments of a theoretical or conceptual aspect of marine science. All papers published in this journal are reviewed by qualified peers prior to acceptance and publication. Examples of topics considered to be appropriate for the journal include, but are not limited to, the following:

– The extent, persistence, and consequences of change and the recovery from such change in natural marine systems
– The biochemical, physiological, and ecological consequences of contaminants to marine organisms and ecosystems
– The biogeochemistry of naturally occurring and anthropogenic substances
– Models that describe and predict the above processes
– Monitoring studies, to the extent that their results provide new information on functional processes
– Methodological papers describing improved quantitative techniques for the marine sciences.

Verified Reviews

The editing department returned the edited manuscript within two days, which was quite fast. However, besides providing academic advice, the reviewer also expressed strong political bias. Since my research area is the South China Sea, I included the nine-dash line in the overview of the study area. The reviewer seized on this point and continuously emphasized that the 2016 South China Sea arbitration ruling implies that our country's claims are not recognized. The deputy editor probably rejected the manuscript based on this reviewer's opinion. Setting aside the political factors, the reviewer's advice was still good, but I decided to decline it directly.

Posted on August 21st, reviewed with editor on the 23rd, under review on the 24th. Received first-round comments on September 21st, revised on October 16th, received second-round comments on October 30th, revised on November 1st, and accepted on November 4th. The journal's quality feels good, and the reviewers are very responsible. Both reviewers' comments amounted to a total of 8 pages, and the revision explanation exceeded 40 pages, but it greatly improved the quality of the manuscript. The current impact factor is 2.16, and it is predicted to reach 4.67 by 2023. I hope it will continue to improve.
