Topical collection: sustaining Life Below Water

Conserving, managing, and protecting our marine and freshwater resources

  • Submission status: Open
  • Open for submission from: 5 September 2022
  • Submission deadline: 1 September 2023

In support of the UN Sustainable Development Goal SDG14 we are calling for submissions for this new collection on Sustaining Life Below Water.

Plastic waste, overfishing, ocean acidification, increasing eutrophication are some of the major threats endangering our oceans, rivers and lakes. With this collection we aim to create a cross-disciplinary home for research articles, perspectives, and emerging topics addressing the conservation and sustainability of the use of our marine and freshwater resources.

By putting scholarship supporting this UN Goal in the spotlight we hope to increase the scientific knowledge and awareness of the targets and indicators set by the UN Goal, such as reducing marine pollution, strengthening resilience, restoring coastal ecosystems, minimizing the impacts of ocean acidification, reducing destructive fishing practices, providing access for small-scale fishers to marine resources and markets and more.

How to submit?  

Please use the ‘Submit manuscript’ link from the journal homepage. During submission you will be asked if you would like your article to be included in a Topical Collection. Select ‘Yes’ and select the name of this collection from the drop down menu: TC: Sustaining Life Below Water.
