Peer reviewed scientific journal.

ISSN 2413-5577

Ecological Safety of Coastal and Shelf Zones of Sea (rus. «Экологическая безопасность прибрежной и шельфовой зон моря») Journal succeeds collection of research papers Ecological Safety of Coastal and Shelf Zones of Sea published from 1999 and up to 2014 named Ecological Safety of Coastal and Shelf Zones and Comprehensive Use of Shelf Resources (rus. «Экологическая безопасность прибрежной и шельфовой зон и комплексное использование ресурсов шельфа»).

The Journal was founded by academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Dr.Sci. (Phys.-Math.), professor, director of the Marine Hydrophysical Institute (2000–2014) Vitaliy A. Ivanov, who was the Journal's editor-in-chief for over 20 years.

In 2018, collection of research papers Ecological Safety of Coastal and Shelf Zones of Sea was transformed into a same-named scientific journal.

Ecological Safety of Coastal and Shelf Zones of Sea Journal publishes results of research performed by Russian and foreign scientific organizations in coastal and shelf zones of seas and oceans in the following main fields:

  • Scientific basis for complex use of shelf natural resources
  • Marine environment state and variability
  • Coastal area state and variability; coast protection structures
  • Monitoring and estimates of possible effects of anthropogenic activities
  • Development and implementation of new marine environment control and monitoring technologies

The research outcome is information about state, variability and possible effects of anthropogenic activities in coastal and shelf zones of sea as well as means allowing doing calculations and providing informational support to make decisions on performing works in a coastal area.

The editorial board provides peer review (single blind) of all submitted articles. All reviewers are qualified professionals in the corresponding area. The editorial board retains reviews for 5 years. The editors send copies of the peer review reports to the authors and in case of a corresponding request to the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation.
