Marine Pollution Bulletin Virtual Special Issue
A Virtual Special Issue in Marine Pollution Bulletin, a peer-reviewed scientiﬁc journal, will feature highlights from the 6IMDC. This Special Issue will present data on marine debris ranging from nanoplastics to derelict ﬁshing gear and abandoned and derelict vessels, found in freshwater bodies, coastal zones, and the open ocean. We welcome original papers on topics including monitoring and citizen science, economics of marine debris, research on impacts to wildlife, the chemistry of marine debris, fate and transport, and implementing eﬀective policy, as well as the dialogue on innovative solutions for prevention, removal and education. The target audience includes members of the academic community, policy-makers, conservation groups, industry, educators, concerned citizens, and local, state, federal and tribal entities.
All articles will be submitted, reviewed, and ﬁnally accepted online via the Elsevier Editorial System. Special Issue content will be published in regular issues of Marine Pollution Bulletin as they are accepted. Accepted submissions will also be compiled in a Virtual Special Issue, easily accessible and navigable on ScienceDirect.
