Ocean & 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 disciplines ranging 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 to central improvement of management practice. The Editors encourage articles involving analytical approaches, development of theory, and improvement of management practice. Comparative studies (e.g. subnational, crossnational, to other policy areas) are especially encouraged, as are studies assessing current management approaches.

Examples of topics covered by the journal include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Interactions among various ocean and coastal uses;
  • Resolution of multiple-use conflicts; alternative management regimes and institutional arrangements for integrated management of ocean and coastal areas; governance of resources and uses in Exclusive Economic Zones;
  • Developments related to the Law of the Sea Convention and to the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), and consideration of legal regimes for the conservation and development of ocean resources beyond the limits of national jurisdiction;
  • Environmental impacts resulting from development of ocean and coastal areas; specific shoreline management issues such as coast protection policies, accelerated sea level rise, public access, waterfront redevelopment, public education and participation, port management, and marine protected areas; resource evaluation for such activities as aquaculture, commercial fisheries, offshore mining, shipping and navigation; energy facilities; coast-dependent industries; marine parks; recreational development and conservation;
  • Physical constraints and natural hazards affecting resource use and development; economic, political, and social constraints; technological solutions to problems of resource demand and supply.
