Journal of the World Aquaculture SocietyEditor-in-Chief, Carl D. Webster  


The Journal of the World Aquaculture Society is an international scientific journal publishing original, peer-reviewed, English-language papers on the culture of aquatic plants and animals. The Journal, published quarterly, covers nutrition, disease, genetics and breeding, physiology, environmental quality, culture systems engineering, husbandry practices, and economics and marketing as well as a number of other topics related to the culture of aquatic organisms. The Journal is listed in Current Contents as well as several other major Contents/Abstracting services and currently has a citation factor of 0.727.

Papers are selected for publication based on scientific competence and the significance of the knowledge or ideas presented. Four categories of papers are published in the Journal. Review Articles provide objective synthesis of a subject of importance in aquaculture. Research Articles are full scientific reports of original research. Research Notes differ from research articles on the basis of scope, not quality, and are generally shorter and of narrower scientific focus. Finally, Communications are brief reports of new observations, concepts, or methodologies.
