Journal articles are the most important sources for scientific information. More than 20 years after the “Berlin Declaration,” more and more journals are published with open access. Due to this, the journals market is subject to a lot of change. Our main aim is to gather information to establish whether our subscriptions still meet the needs of our scientists. Key factors used to identify the core journals for marine sciences are displayed, at least for the scientists of our institution, which is an interdisciplinary research facility. It specializes in the study of coastal oceans and marginal seas and is divided into four sections that focus on different research activities. Because of this, it is important to find a combined set of core journals that reflect the needs of all scientists involved. Recent budget cuts have made it even more necessary to cut down on journal costs. Certain questions had to be answered during the evaluation process. Topics included in those questions were the definition of what core journals are, where our scientists publish their research, which journals they cite, available open access and institutional access to journals specialized in marine sciences and the cost of journals.

Estimating connectivity in marine populations : an empirical evaluation of assignment tests and parentage analysis under different gene flow scenarios Saenz-Agudelo, Pablo; Jones, Geoffrey P.; Thorrold, Simon R.; Planes, Serge (2008-11-21)The application of spatially explicit models of population dynamics to fisheries management and the design marine reserves network systems has been limited due to a lack of empirical estimates of larval dispersal.
