Publications of proceedings
To achieve the full long term impact of the symposium, two routes will be pursued: a synthesis workshop and joint publication.
A synthesis workshop will follow directly after the symposium and will produce paper outlines based on the work presented in each of the four topics as well as an introductory manuscript describing the scope of the full symposium. Participants will include the conveners of each session.
A joint publication will ensure the maximum impact of the symposium in the literature. Such a publication will make it easier for participants to retrieve papers based on presentations and enhance cross referencing. ICES Journal of Marine Science has agreed to publish a special volume of articles based on a selection of presentations (oral as well as posters) given at the symposium. In addition to the presentations, key note speakers and conveners will be requested to provide manuscripts based on their presentations as well as the products from the synthesis workshop. The ICES journal (http://icesjms.oxfordjournals.org/) is ideally suited for this task through its wide scope, encompassing papers from ecosystem studies, environmental effects on fished stocks, as well as economic and social studies related to fisheries.
Manuscripts to be considered for publication in special the volume can be submitted from January 1st 2015 to 1st February 2016. Accepted manuscripts will be available online as these have completed the regular process for papers in the ICES Journal of Marine Science. The symposium issue is expected to be published in January 2017. All manuscripts are required to conform to normal standards for publication in ICES Journal of Marine Science.
