Call for Papers


The call for papers for Volume 12 of the NAMMCO Scientific Publications series is now open. We are interested in work from any discipline with relevance for the conservation and management of marine mammals in the North Atlantic. Submissions can be in the form of original Research Articles, Literature Reviews, Technical or Policy Notes, or Workshop Reports.

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.

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 blind peer review 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 open call will be accepted between January 1st – October 1st 2021.


Should you have any questions about the journal, the open call, or the suitability of your work for the volume, you can contact the Series Editor Heleen Middel at
