Estuaries and Coasts is the journal of the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation. It publishes original research on the hydrodynamics, hydrology, (geo)chemistry, geology, biology and their interactions in marine waters influenced by connectivity to land. The journal's geographic scope includes coastal watersheds, tidal rivers, estuaries, lagoons, inland seas, wetlands, and near-shore coastal waters from polar to equatorial latitudes. The Editors encourage submissions that present novel approaches, findings or concepts of general interest to better understand the functioning and structure of coastal systems and will interest the journal's increasingly international readership. Submissions that are primarily descriptive, strongly place based, or report on development of models or new methods without detailing their applications fall outside the scope of the journal.

Management Applications. Estuaries and Coasts welcomes papers that demonstrate the application of estuarine and coastal research to address contemporary estuarine and coastal management and policy issues. The underlying science is expected to be at the level of Original Reports, but illustrations and case studies of how it can be used to address real-world problems is the focus. Authors of prospective Management Applications submissions are encouraged to contact the Co-Editors-in-Chief to assess whether their manuscript meets this scope.
