• Always up to date
The latest in OA news and information from across the internet, updated daily from Monday-Friday, year round
• Curated and OA focused
Experts sort through and standardise the content, sharing only information relevant to the field of ocean acidification so you don’t have to
• Tens of thousands of posts to search from
This blog has been consistently maintained for almost 10 years totally tens of thousands of posts that archive any OA content on the internet.
• Events calendar
Every event is entered into a shareable google calendar that you can use to stay informed about whats happening in the world of OA science.
• Consistent citation format and style
We apply our own citation format, clearly identifying all authors, the right sources of information, and other important metadata.
• Unique keywords for important topics in science articles
Every scientific article in our news stream and biblio are tagged with an expert designed vocabulary of keywords that has been consistently and rigorously applied for almost 20 years.
• Scientific articles and reports added to a freely-available bibliographic database
All scientific articles published in the blog are added to the OA-ICC bibliographic database. This database is updated monthly for the public, and rigorous quality controls are applied.
This news stream was launched in July 2006 by Dr Jean-Pierre Gattuso (Research Professor at the Centre national de la recherche scientifique, Laboratoire d'Océanographie de Villefranche-sur-mer). From May 2008 it was maintained by the European Project on Ocean Acidification. Since August 2012, the news stream has been managed by the Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC), based at the Environment Laboratories of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Monaco, with the goal of continuing this service to all ocean acidification stakeholders, including the scientific community, decision makers and the general public.
The purpose of this news stream is to centralize information about ocean acidification and its consequences on marine organisms and ecosystems. By no means is it meant to be comprehensive, but we attempt to provide an unbiased view of the literature and media articles.
Disclaimer: The IAEA and its Member States do not endorse the opinions or views expressed in the items that are posted on this news stream, which are posted solely for the purpose of informing the interested audience.

Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC)
This news stream is maintained by the Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre, a IAEA Peaceful Uses Initiative project launched at the UN Rio+20 conference in 2012 following increasing concern from IAEA Member States about ocean acidification. The Centre responds to the need to coordinate, promote and facilitate global ocean acidification activities. Learn more at our website.
