Limnology and Oceanography: Methods (ISSN 1541-5856) is a companion to ASLO's top-rated journal Limnology and Oceanography, and articles are held to the same high standards. In order to provide the most rapid publication consistent with high standards, Limnology and Oceanography: Methods appears in electronic format only, and the entire submission and review system is online. Articles are posted as soon as they are accepted and formatted for publication.
Limnology and Oceanography: Methods will consider manuscripts whose primary focus is methodological, and that deal with problems in the aquatic sciences. Manuscripts may present new measurement equipment, techniques for analyzing observations or samples, methods for understanding and interpreting information, analyses of metadata to examine the effectiveness of approaches, invited and contributed reviews and syntheses, and techniques for communicating and teaching in the aquatic sciences.
Papers that focus on applications rather than on methods should be directed to the companion journal Limnology and Oceanography.
Limnology and Oceanography: Methods is published by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) in partnership with John Wiley & Sons. In addition, Special Issues that focus on topics that are timely and of interest to a significant number of ASLO members are published occasionally. Proposals and inquiries for Special Issues should be directed to the Editor-in-Chief of L&O: Methods.
