Journal of Aquatic Sciences and Oceanography (JASO) is a peer reviewed, open access multidisciplinary journal publishing research papers, short communications, technical notes and review papers on all aspects of aquaculture. The journal publishes the articles dealing with aquatic systems (marine, wetlands, and freshwater systems) and their boundaries. Original contributions of general and regional interest are published with the aim to provide an international forum for the integration of aquatic research to create a European platform for its dissemination and to promote the multidisciplinary aspects of water science.

Authors are encouraged to submit complete unpublished and original works, which are not under review in any other journals.

Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is when an author attempts to pass off someone else's work as his or her own. Duplicate publication, sometimes called self-plagiarism, occurs when an author reuses substantial parts of his or her own published work without providing the appropriate references. This can range from getting an identical paper published in multiple journals, to 'salami-slicing', where authors add small amounts of new data to a previous paper.
