Key Journals

The literature of Marine Management can be found in a variety of academic journals. Database keyword searches will lead you to become familiar with some of the journals that are relevant to your topics.

Remember that some of the journal issues may be available electronically, while others may be available only in print, in one of the Dalhousie Libraries. A Novanet search for the journal title will help you to determine if the journal issue that you need is available at Dalhousie or at one of the other Novanet libraries.

If Dalhousie's Libraries do not have the journal issue and article that you need, you may wish to order the article from another Novanet library or via Document Delivery, a service which is offered free of charge to Dalhousie students and faculty.

Here are examples of just a few of the journal titles which are likely to contain material of importance to marine management students and researchers:
