Call for Papers - Volume 14 "Anthropogenic Impacts on Marine Mammals"


The call for papers for Volume 14 of the NAMMCO Scientific Publications series is now open. This volume’s theme will be “Anthropogenic Impacts on Marine Mammals”. We are interested in submissions relating to human disturbances of marine mammals in the North Atlantic, including (but not limited to) works on catch and by-catch.

Submission, Review & Publication Process

Manuscripts can be submitted online, for which at least one author will need to register as a user on this site. Submissions can be in the form of original Research Articles, Literature Reviews, Technical or Policy Notes, or Workshop Reports.


Articles are welcome from all disciplines and should present original research. All articles are peer-reviewed. Make a new submission to the Articles section.

Workshop Reports

Reports from international expert workshops relevant to the management of marine mammals in the North Atlantic. Make a new submission to the Workshop Reports section.


Notes are short manuscripts that provide either technical descriptions of new innovations (Technical Note) or summaries in non-technical language of new and/or emerging issues that are of relevance for managers and policy makers (Policy Note). Make a new submission to the Notes section.


Reviews provide a critical synthesis of relevant scholarly literature on a selected topic. All literature reviews will be subject to peer-review before publication. Make a new submission to the Reviews section.

The Guidelines for Authors are available here. Note that although authors may submit their article in any format they prefer, if the manuscript is accepted for publication, they will need to ensure that it is transferred into the NAMMCO Scientific Publications Template. Authors are therefore also welcome to use this template to structure their initial submission.

Manuscripts submitted as original Research Articles or Literature Reviews will be sent for single-blind peer review (i.e., author disclosed/reviewer anonymous) by at least two reviewers. Manuscripts submitted as Notes are not necessarily sent for peer review but will be reviewed by at least the one of the Editors.

If accepted for publication, the manuscript will be published online as soon as it is finalised and authors will therefore not have to wait for the entire volume to be complete before their work is made publicly available.


Submissions for this call will be accepted between May 24th and December 31st 2024.
