OCEAN & COASTAL MANAGEMENTOcean & Coastal Management is an international journal published 12 times per year dedicated to the study of all aspects of ocean and coastal management at international, national, regional, and local levels.
Sustainable development and conservation of ocean and coastal resources requires the insights of a number of monodisciplinary, multidisciplinary as well as integral studies and approaches. The different disciplines may range from the natural and physical sciences to the social sciences, policy analysis, economics, and law.
Articles from all relevant disciplines are invited, but all contributions must make clear the explicit link between fundamental concepts and the central improvement of management practice.
Comparative studies (e.g. sub-national, cross-national, to other policy areas) are encouraged, as are studies assessing current management approaches. Articles involving analytical approaches, development of theory, and improvement of management practice are especially welcome.
Examples of topics covered by the journal include, but are not limited to, the following:
• DevelopmentsrelatedtotheLawoftheSeaConventionandtotheUnitedNationsConferenceonEnvironmentandDevelopment(UNCED),andconsiderationof legal regimes for theconservationanddevelopmentofocean resourcesbeyond the limitsofnational jurisdiction
