OA bibliographic database


The OA-ICC bibliographic database is based on an initiative developed by Jean-Pierre Gattuso (CNRS/UPMC) in 1995. The database continued to evolve and was maintained as part of the European Project on Ocean Acidification (EPOCA) from 2008 to 2012 (Gattuso & Hansson, 2011). In July 2012, the maintenance and update of the database became one of the activities of the IAEA Ocean Acidification International Coordination Centre (OA-ICC).

Summary and use

The OA-ICC bibliographic database is a comprehensive collection of the corpus of literature on ocean acidification. It includes journal articles, MSc and PhD dissertations, books, and book chapters, from 1922 to the present, and has been consistently maintained for over 15 years.

The OA-ICC bibliographic database has been regularly used to analyse the number of authors and papers published each year, the geographical distribution of first authors, and the topics investigated. Relevant papers of interest are:

  • Gattuso J.-P. & Hansson L., 2011. Ocean acidification: background and history. In: Gattuso J.-P. & Hansson L. (Eds.), Ocean acidification, pp. 1-20. Oxford: Oxford University Press. Book.
  • Riebesell U. & Gattuso J.-P., 2015. Lessons learned from ocean acidification research. Nature Climate Change5: 12-14. Article.
