Journal of Aquatic Research and Sustainability is an open-access, peer-reviewed, international journal. This journal publishes high-quality original scientific papers and short communications. Review articles of current interest and high standards may be considered. Manuscripts must be submitted on the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere and are only being considered by this journal.

The scope of this journal is broad, encompassing all aspects of aquatic research and Sustainability.

This journal annually publishes four issues (March, June, September, and December) under the continuous publication model beginning with Volume 2024, Issue 1. This means that as soon as an article is ready to be published, it will be immediately assigned to an issue online rather than waiting for other articles to be completed, resulting in faster access to the final version.

Aims and scope

The Journal of Aquatic Research and Sustainability (JARS) epitomizes a distinguished, internationally recognized, and peer-reviewed open-access platform committed to broadening the horizons of knowledge within the domains of fisheries, aquatic research, and sustainability. Driven by an unyielding dedication to excellence, the journal serves as a catalyst, spearheading the dissemination of groundbreaking research and fostering an environment conducive to innovation in this pivotal field. JARS’s overarching aim is to provide an interactive platform where researchers, practitioners, and industry leaders convene to exchange their latest breakthroughs, diverse perspectives, and innovative methodologies across an extensive spectrum of topics. These encompass, but not limited to the following focal areas,

  • Aquatic biodiversity and conservation: Study into the exploration of biodiversity patterns, conservation strategies, and management approaches aimed at safeguarding aquatic ecosystems and preserving species diversity.
  • Ecosystem dynamics and functioning: Investigation on the intricate structure, functioning, and dynamics of aquatic ecosystems, encompassing biogeochemical cycles, food webs, and ecosystem services.
  • Water quality and pollution control: Comprehensive studies focusing on water quality assessment, pollution sources and impacts, and the development of sustainable management practices and remediation techniques to mitigate aquatic pollution.
  • Fisheries science and management: Researches centered on fisheries ecology, stock assessment, sustainable harvesting practices, ecosystem-based management, and the formulation of governance frameworks for responsible fisheries management.
  • Aquatic habitat restoration and management: Innovative approaches and techniques for aquatic habitat restoration, habitat enhancement strategies, and ecosystem-based approaches to bolster the resilience and health of aquatic habitats.
  • Climate change impacts on aquatic systems: Effects of climate change on aquatic environments, encompassing shifts in species distributions, alterations in habitat suitability, and ecosystem responses, to inform adaptation strategies.
  • Aquaculture and Sustainable Aquatic Food Production: Studies focusing on sustainable aquaculture practices, technological innovations, environmental impacts, and social considerations to ensure the sustainability of aquatic food production systems.
  • Community-Based Resource Management: Community-driven approaches to natural resource management, integrating indigenous knowledge systems, participatory decision-making, and stakeholder engagement for sustainable resource use.
  • Policy interventions for aquatic sustainability: Policy frameworks, regulations, and governance mechanisms aimed at promoting the conservation, restoration, and sustainable use of aquatic resources, advocating for effective policy interventions.
  • Aquatic pollution remediation technologies: Research on innovative technologies for the remediation of aquatic pollution, including bioremediation, phytoremediation, nanotechnology-based remediation, and ecological engineering approaches to restore polluted aquatic ecosystems.
  • Invasive species management: Studies on the ecology and management of invasive species in aquatic environments, including their impacts on native biodiversity, ecosystem functioning, and socio-economic systems, as well as strategies for prevention, control, and eradication.
  • Aquatic ecosystem services valuation: Research on the valuation of ecosystem services provided by aquatic ecosystems, including provisioning, regulating, supporting, and cultural services, and their incorporation into decision-making processes for sustainable management and conservation.
  • Socio-ecological systems approaches: Investigations into the interactions between social and ecological systems in aquatic environments, including the analysis of feedback loops, resilience, adaptive capacity, and governance structures for integrated management of aquatic resources.
  • Blue economy and sustainable development: Studies on the sustainable utilization of aquatic resources for economic development, including the promotion of blue economy initiatives, sustainable aquaculture, marine biotechnology, ecotourism, and sustainable livelihoods for coastal communities.
  • Aquatic health and disease management: Research on the health and disease management of aquatic organisms, including fish, shellfish, and aquatic plants, addressing issues such as disease surveillance, diagnostics, prevention, and control measures for sustainable aquaculture and wild fisheries.
  • Social-ecological resilience: Examination of the resilience of aquatic social-ecological systems to environmental changes, disturbances, and shocks, including the identification of resilience-building strategies and adaptive management approaches to enhance the sustainability of aquatic ecosystems.
  • Ethical considerations in aquatic research: Exploration of ethical issues and considerations in aquatic research and management, including the ethical treatment of aquatic organisms, indigenous rights, traditional ecological knowledge, and equitable access to aquatic resources.
  • Emerging technologies in aquatic research: Research on emerging technologies such as remote sensing, GIS, big data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning for monitoring, modeling, and managing aquatic ecosystems and resources.
  • Human-wildlife interactions in aquatic environments: Studies on the interactions between humans and aquatic wildlife, including the impacts of fishing, aquaculture, habitat alteration, pollution, and climate change on aquatic species, as well as strategies for mitigating conflicts and promoting coexistence.
  • Interdisciplinary perspectives on aquatic sustainability: Collaboration and integration of diverse disciplines and methodologies to address the intricate challenges in aquatic sustainability, nurturing interdisciplinary synergy and innovation in research and practice.

The Journal of Aquatic Research and Sustainability warmly invites original research articles, survey papers, review articles, case studies, editorials, and technical notes that make substantial contributions to the advancement of fisheries, aquatic research, and sustainability disciplines. We actively encourage interdisciplinary research that forges connections between aquatic research and other fields, fostering collaboration and innovation. JARS is dedicated to facilitating knowledge exchange and fostering intellectual discourse, with the ultimate goal of shaping the future of fisheries, aquatic research, and sustainability. We welcome submissions from researchers, practitioners, and scholars worldwide, and we are committed to providing a platform for the dissemination of high-quality research that addresses the complex challenges facing aquatic ecosystems and promotes sustainable solutions for their conservation and management.
