Limnology and Oceanography e-Books
L&O e-Books is ASLO’s latest publication, designed to offer
aquatic scientists an outlet for high quality electronic books. We
provide full publication services including peer review, editorial
guidance, distribution and marketing. We solicit proposals from authors
and symposium/workshop conveners for aquatic science texts or
proceedings of interest to ASLO members and the academic and aquatic
science communities at large.
Three targeted projects are also under development:
- Topical bundles of L&O articles selected and introduced by an
expert in the field. These will consist of collections of 10-12 articles
on a topic of current interest. Each collection will include an
introduction and brief history of the field with a synthetic overview as
it relates to emerging issues in aquatic sciences – for example: The
effects of acidification in freshwaters and its relevance for marine
- Short topical books (100-150 pages)
We solicit proposals from ASLO scientists for e-books that would be
longer than a journal article but shorter than a traditional book. The
e-book format is ideally suited to these short books.
- Limnology and Oceanography Biographies
ASLO awards are named for respected colleagues whose accomplishments
in the fields of Limnology and Oceanography are relevant to the award.
Three award biographies of have been published in the Bulletin. They are
also being made available as e-Books. We also solicit proposals from
authors who wish to publish the biography of a respected limnologist or
||L&O e-Books is proud to announce the latest publication in the exciting Eco-DAS Symposium Series: Eco-DAS IX Symposium Proceedings edited by Symposium organizer Dr. Paul Kemp.
