Journal Archive

MarSci was first published in the Fall of 2002 at the University of South Carolina. Since that time the journal has changed editorial teams several times and experienced several revisions. The MarSci now available to readers around the world is a result of the work put forth by all the editors, staff, and faculty advisers of the journal. We are proud to offer you an archive of MarSci releases from 2002 - present.
