JAMSTEC Report of Research and Development

Final Submissions for JAMSTEC-R Close on Feb. 28, 2018 for Cessation of Publication

December 22, 2017

I would like to inform you that JAMSTEC will cease publishing JAMSTEC-R (JAMSTEC Report of Research and Development) in FY2018.

If you consider contributing to JAMSTEC-R, please submit your paper early, as submissions will be closed on February 28, 2018.

JAMSTEC-R was first published in 2005, integrating "Report of Japan Marine Science and Technology Center" launched in 1977 and "JAMSTEC Journal of Deep Sea Research" launched in 1985.

A new open access journal that covers what JAMSTEC-R has ever reported is in preparation now.

Although the final publication is over one year away, I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to all contributors, reviewers, and readers.
