Journal of Oceanology and Limnology (JOL) aims to disseminate original research articles in the forms of review, research paper, and note. JOL welcomes high-quality articles on aspects of oceanology (oceanography) and limnology from all over the world, including those in academic coverage: biology (bioinformatics, bioengineering), physics (mathematical and computational physics), geology (sedimentology, geophysics, paleontology, geochemistry), chemistry (geochemistry, biochemistry), hydrology, meteorology, and geography; and those in practical coverage: aquaculture, marine resource exploration, remote-sensing, environmental protection, marine engineering, pharmacology, and instrumentation.

Manuscripts submitted are considered only on the condition that the contents are not plagiarized nor published elsewhere previously, and must be complied with ethical standards.

Articles submitted shall state explicitly the objectives and novelty. The articles shall be written in good English and smooth logic, and well understood by broad audience.

Authors who publish open access are required to pay an article processing charge (APC). Authors can also choose to publish under the traditional publishing model; possible charges for this model include manuscript processing costs, such as image drawing, language polishing, and color printing etc.
