Circulation, Readership, and Market

The Oceanography Society membership represents all disciplines of oceanography as well as ocean technology. All members in good standing receive copies of the magazine. Approximately 15% of its members are non-US scientists and institutions from 38 countries. The Society conducts its own biennial scientific meetings at which magazines are distributed to attendees (Society members and nonmembers). The magazine is also distributed to attendees visiting the Society's exhibit booth at several oceanographic conferences throughout the year.

The typical reader of Oceanography is a Ph.D.-level professional ocean scientist, educator, or policy-maker who directs, conducts, or manages contemporary ocean research at a university, institution, or government facility. The magazine offers advertisers direct access to an international core of ocean scientists who are responsible for selecting and purchasing modern ocean technology, and who actively use and often design ocean-related hardware and software. Our information indicates that Oceanography is retained for years by readers as a valuable reference.
