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 30% of its members are non-US scientists and institutions from 66 countries. 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 PhD-level professional ocean scientist, educator, or policymaker 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.


Policy and Standards

Oceanography will accept advertising that meets editorial standards of accuracy, relevance, timeliness, and good taste. The magazine will not accept inserts that detract from the scientific content of the issue. In all cases, the Editor has final responsibility for determining the acceptability of an advertising insert, and any submitted material may be declined at the Editor's prerogative.
