Journal of Marine Biology – a new open access publication

It does not have many papers yet, but it looks like Journal of Marine Biology may be set to take off.  I just saw a call for papers for a special issue titled “Toward Ecosystem Mangement of Pacific Islands” that is being put together by University of Hawaii scientists Rob Toonen, Judy Lemus, and Kim Selkoe.  The fourth guest editor is Ben Halpern from the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis.  They plan to publish the special issue in a year (December 2010).

The journal can be found at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jmb/contents.html
