MBA Journals

The Marine Biological Association of the United Kingdom publishes two high quality international journals.

The Journal of the Marine Biological Association is published by Cambridge University Press (CUP). Details can be found and manuscripts submitted at the CUP website.

Marine Biodiversity Records is currently published by CUP  but will be published by BioMED Central from January 1st 2016. For articles up to the end of 2015 please find details here. To submit a new article please visit the new BioMED Central website.

Members can obtain  special rates for access to the Journal of the Marine Biological Association. Marine Biodiversity Records is soon to be Open Access, and will therefore be freely accessible to all via the journal website.

Journal subscription is also available when you become a member of the MBA.
