A published manuscript should be written in Korean or English. But, the manuscripts written in English should be published as a thesis which has the theme (fishery, engineering, policy, resource, polar regions, etc.) different from the publication theme of the Ocean Science Journal co-published by KIOST(Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology) and the Korean Society of Oceanography or on a special edition (symposium, workshop, commemorative edition, etc.)
Manuscripts are classified into article, review, note or data and the author should specify its classification when submitting the manuscripts. And the final decision should be made by the editorial committee.
Submission and Application and Review Process
All manuscripts should be submitted through “Thesis Submission Management System” on the OPR website (http://opr.kiost.ac).

This journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.
As peer review is the key factor on ensuring high quality articles based on an objective and balanced evaluation, papers submitted to Ocean and Polar Research undergo peer review.
Manuscript is published in an order of acceptance. But, the committee chair can adjust the order with a request from the author or with a consideration of an academic field.
Correction & Printing
Accepted thesis should be sent to the author for correction and the author should correct and re-send the thesis within three days. Also, the thesis cannot be revised during the correction.
