Our peer reviewed journal launches "perspectives"

Aquaculture International (AQUI), our scientific journal is planning a new section called “Perspectives”. This contains short papers that describe in which direction a particular area of research is likely to develop. Knowing that writing articles is time consuming we are encouraging EAS members and others to send available text that would be more or less ready for publishing. “The state of the art and progress beyond” as required by FP7 or other project proposals could be ideal for that. Please send material to Gavin Burnell at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. For presenters of papers or posters at our AE2009 conference in Trondheim this summer, please also consider its publication in AQUI. Information for authors and submission is available here.
