The last chapter of the “Guide to Best Practices in Ocean Acidification Research and Data Reporting” is available for open review

The Guide to Best Practices in Ocean Acidification Research and Data Reporting is intended as a reference to provide guidance for research in the rapidly growing field of ocean acidification. Its preparation was initiated by the European Project on Ocean Acidification (EPOCA) and the International Oceanographic Commission (IOC) and sponsored by EPOCA, IOC, the Scientific Council on Oceanic Research (SCOR), the U.S. Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry Project (OCB), and the Kiel Excellence Cluster “The Future Ocean”.



A new article by Balch and Fabry is available for open review (”Direct measurements of calcification rates in planktonic organisms”) and can be downloaded from http://www.epoca-project.eu/index.php/Home/Guide-to-OA-Research/. All scientists are invited to provide comments and suggestions to the lead author and cc to the editors (see below). Lead authors may decide to include the names of experts who have provided substantial input to their section to the list of contributing authors. After completion of the review by the marine science community, the guide will be made available electronically and in printed form via EPOCA, IOC and OCB.

The recognition and usefulness of this guide critically depends on the level of community consensus it can generate. We therefore urge you to provide input on any part of this document. After completion the guide will be made available electronically and in printed form via EPOCA, IOC and OCB. It is envisioned to revisit and possibly revise the guide to accommodate new developments in the field in a few years time.

We are grateful to all colleagues who have contributed their time to the preparation of this guide as chapter editors, lead and contributing authors and expert reviewers.

Ulf Riebesell, Victoria J. Fabry, Jean-Pierre Gattuso (editors)
