A new look, new features, new partnerships and new focus on marine science topics will be introduced in 2019, positioning ECO as a must-have resource for the marine science community.

STUART, FL. November 26, 2018 - ECO magazine (ECO), a leading international marine science publication written by ocean experts and explorers, has announced several exciting changes for 2019. The introduction of new topics and features will provide essential information for scientists and professionals working in marine and coastal fields, as well as a platform they can utilize to share thought-provoking stories, opinions, and work-related advice.

For 2019, each of ECO’s six issues will showcase scientific advances in deep sea, polar science, marine ecosystems, fisheries and aquaculture, coastal and estuaries, and ocean exploration. In each issue, several new features will be introduced including articles summarizing the latest scientific research in partnership with the world’s largest and fastest growing marine science journal Frontiers in Marine Science. Other features include best practice articles for conducting surveys and other scientific activities, and a guide for essential products and technology to use in the field or laboratory, as chosen by scientists.

Popular sections that will continue into 2019 include the science and industry news, job announcements, and opinion articles written by leaders in the field.

“ECO is a publication designed especially for the marine science community so that they can stay informed on the latest advancements, learn from others’ experience in the field, and read a selection of compelling articles written by coworkers and topic experts,” said Kira Coley, senior editor of ECO.

“What’s more, we are providing dozens of opportunities for scientists and industry professionals to feature in a magazine that is dedicated to celebrating and promoting international research. There are so many benefits to publishing ‘beyond the journal’, and we are here to support that process.”

Coley took over as the senior editor in March 2018 after working as a marine scientist and freelance writer specializing in ocean topics. Over the last six months, Coley has been introducing changes to the magazine that best serves to connect the global marine science community.

She adds, “We’re fortunate to have a talented team here at ECO that understands the needs of marine scientists and ocean industry. We are all looking forward to 2019 and working even more closely with marine research institutes all over the world, as well as supporting research efforts in the ocean environment, which is often as complex and challenging as it is beautiful.”

The new website and magazine will launch in January 2019. ECO invites and encourages submissions from scientists, institutes, and professionals for any of their 2019 issues. Please click here to download the media card.
