Frontiers in Marine Science aims to make science open – so that scientists can collaborate better and innovate faster. The fundamental measure of success will be the full transition to open access as the default method of publishing quality-controlled research findings. Thanks to the dedicated people who work at Frontiers, as well as the participation of the research communities, we are confident that we can make the future of science fully open and accelerate the solutions we need to live healthy lives on a healthy planet.

Proceedings B is the Royal Society’s flagship biological research journal, accepting original articles and reviews of outstanding scientific importance and broad general interest. The main criteria for acceptance are that a study is novel, and has general significance to biologists. Articles published cover the breadth of the biological sciences; many but not all articles have direct relevance to organisms and the environments in which they live. The scope of articles that we publish includes, but is not limited to: behaviour, development, physiology, ecology, evolution, genetics, genomics, global change, conservation, morphology, biomechanics, neuroscience, cognition and paleobiology. As well as original research articles, the journal welcomes submissions of Reviews, Evidence Synthesis, and Biological Science Practices articles.

SCOR is an international non-governmental non-profit organization. SCOR activities focus on promoting international cooperation in planning and conducting oceanographic research, and solving methodological and conceptual problems that hinder research. SCOR covers all areas of ocean science and cooperates with other organizations with common interests to conduct many SCOR activities.

SCOR also conducts activities to build the capacity for ocean science in developing countries and every SCOR activity includes members from developing countries.

Approximately 600 scientists from nearly 60 countries currently participate in SCOR activities.
