An overview of Chilean Marine Sciences Journals
MetadataShow full item record
The work provides a global vision of Chilean marine sciences journals, besides the problems that have existed in relation to their edition and publication. In spite of being serious publications with rich scientific content related to the study area, mainly along the coast of the eastern South Pacific, these journals have not reached the expected levels to be considered within the ISI system journals. With the purpose of obtaining an objective appreciation in regard to the presentation formats of the titles investigated, diverse evaluation guidelines were employed to evaluate format, editorial management and policies, characteristics of content, ISI impact factors, etc. Publication, visibility and diffusion problems that these journals have gone through to remain as a part of the editorial media, are also examined.
