IMATA members were provided the opportunity to become involved with The European Association for Aquatic Mammals' peer-reviewed journal: Aquatic Mammals. Professional IMATA members Dr. Heidi Harley & Dr. Grey Stafford have been appointed to the Aquatic Mammals Editorial Board. Professional IMATA members Patrick Berry & Sunna Edberg have also been appointed as guest editors for a new column that will be incorporated into the Journal: Conditioning for Conservation.
The Conditioning for Conservation column is dedicated to peer-reviewed manuscripts that identify behavioral conditioning techniques used to facilitate research methodologies of marine animals under human care which contribute to conservation of these species in the wild.
If you are interested in publishing in this peer-reviewed column of the Aquatic Mammals Journal, please contact Dr. Debi Luke, Research and Conservation Committee Chair at ResearchConservation@imata.org.
Aquatic Mammals is the peer-reviewed journal of the European Association for Aquatic Mammals (EAAM) and is the oldest peer-reviewed journal publishing papers on marine mammal science. The journal is available as a printed copy, CD, or online version through Ingenta Connect.
Aquatic Mammals is sincerely concerned about the use of consumables such as paper, ink, and mailing envelopes. The journal’s Editors, Editorial Board, and sponsors want to minimize the impact of journal publications on the environment.
As of 1 January 2010, all published materials by Aquatic Mammals (articles, manuscripts, correspondence, reviews, renewal notices, etc.) will be published and/or distributed entirely electronically. As a result, Aquatic Mammals will no longer appear in hard copy format. Rather, Aquatic Mammals will become a “real-time” online journal.
For subscription information, please access the Aquatic Mammals website: http://www.aquaticmammalsjournal.org/
As an IMATA membership benefit, Aquatic Mammals is granting access to the electroinc journal for Professional and Active IMATA members. If you would like to access the Aquatic Mammals journal and enjoy this membership benefit, please follow the directions below.
