Ocean and Polar Research
  • Aims and Scope

Ocean and Polar Research (OPR), formerly Ocean Research is a comprehensive ocean research journal published quarterly by the Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology (KIOST, formerly KORDI) located in Ansan, Gyeonggi-do, Korea. The journal, published in March, June, September, and December, is dedicated to the study of all aspects of oceanography and polar researches. To better reflect global issues in oceanography, Ocean Research has merged with Korean Journal of Polar Research and thus renamed Ocean and Polar Research.

And publication in this journal is totally FREE (No Article submission charges nor article processing charges and no publication fees).
