PRIMO20 Special Issues Publication

Both Marine Environmental Research and Aquatic Toxicology will be publishing platform presentations (and potentially fantastic poster presentations) presented at the PRIMO 20 conference in special issues of these two journals. All the manuscripts will be subjected to normal peer-review to guarantee the scientific standard required by the journals and, if accepted, they will be considered as regular articles.


Expected number of articles in each journal is 10-15. Both journals have agreed to the same guidelines, and requested we keep tight time tables.

1. 31 May 2019 is the deadline for confirming the willingness to submit a paper.

2. 1 September 2019 is when submissions will open and the submission window will close 15 October 2019.

3. 1 March 2020: All manuscripts should be fully reviewed and final decisions made by this date.

4. April 2020: The date the Virtual Special Issue will be published including the preface / PRIMO review.
