OA-ICC releases online bibliographic database on ocean acidification

A bibliographic database containing more than 2000 references, all scientific publications on ocean acidification, has just been released by the IAEA Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC). Each reference is provided with full citation information and an abstract, while a consistent set of keywords is used to categorize publications to facilitate searches and permit bibliographic analysis (Gattuso & Hansson, 2011).

The database is now available through the widely used application Mendeley, with an update provided every three months. More precisely, it is provided as the public group “Ocean acidification (OA-ICC)”. With Mendeley users can easily use this database to cite papers in scientific publications using various software such as EndNote or BibTeX. The database is accessible along with user instructions at the following link. It is our hope that the ocean acidification community will find this resource useful. Users who find errors or wish to add missing references should contact Lina Hansson (l.hansson(at)iaea.org or oa-icc(at)iaea.org).

Please use the below example or similar wording when citing this bibliographic database:

“For this study we relied on the bibliographic database from the IAEA Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC), updated from Gattuso and Hansson (2011).”


The foundations of this bibliographic database were laid by Jean-Pierre Gattuso (CNRS/UPMC) in 1995. It was maintained and evolved as part of the EU project EPOCA (www.epoca-project.eu) from 2008 – 2012 (Gattuso & Hansson, 2011). Since July 2012, it is managed and updated by the IAEA Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC)
