ASLO Publications

Limnology and Oceanography
Limnology and Oceanography (print ISSN 0024-3590, online ISSN 1939-5590) is published in 6 issues per annual volume, and includes original articles and review papers about all aspects of limnology and oceanography. The journal's unifying theme is the understanding of aquatic ecosystems. Submissions are judged on the originality of their data, interpretations, and ideas, and on the degree to which they can be generalized beyond the particular aquatic ecosystem examined.
Limnology and Oceanography: Methods
Limnology and Oceanography: Methods (ISSN 1541-5856) is published in annual volumes and will consider manuscripts whose primary focus is methodological, and that deal with problems in the aquatic sciences. Manuscripts may present new measurement equipment, techniques for analyzing observations or samples, methods for understanding and interpreting information, analyses of metadata to examine the effectiveness of approaches, invited and contributed reviews and syntheses, and techniques for communicating and teaching in the aquatic sciences.
Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin
The Limnology and Oceanography Bulletin (ISSN 1539-6088) is published quarterly and contains up to 3 peer-reviewed Articles per issue, Letters to the Bulletin, and ASLO News (information for the ASLO membership). Articles for the Bulletin are short, should be of broad interest to the entire ASLO membership (and outside readers as well), and may cover such diverse topics as: new directions or methods in aquatic science; new findings on, or interpretations of a major topic; and political and educational issues/approaches.
Limnology and Oceanography e-Lectures
Limnology and Oceanography e-Lectures (ISSN 2164-0254) are prepared by experts on various topics in aquatic sciences. They are peer-reviewed and fully citable. L&O e-Lectures are intended as a practical resource for educators and researchers for use at the postsecondary level or for the public at large. Each L&O e-Lecture includes presentation slides, detailed lecture notes to facilitate lecture usage and recommended reading lists for lecture users and targeted audiences. Presentation slides are available in PowerPoint and PDF formats and are both PC and Mac compatible.
Limnology and Oceanography: Fluids and Environments
L&O Fluids and Environments was published between 2011-2014 in partnership with Duke University Press. It focused on the interface of fluid dynamics and biology, chemistry, and/or geology in aquatic systems. Although the journal has been retired, its content remains freely available.
Limnology and Oceanography e-Books
ASLO has published several e-Books, all of which are freely available to the public.
