Description: Limnology and Oceanography (L&O) has been published annually since 1956. The unifying theme of L&O is the understanding of aquatic ecosystems. Submissions are judged on the originality of their data, interpretations, and ideas, and on the degree to which these can be generalized beyond the particular aquatic ecosystem examined. Most L&O papers have a strong empirical component-laboratory and modeling studies must demonstrate relevance to natural environments; typically this means that they are bolstered by "real-world" data. According to the Science Citation Index, L&O is the most frequently cited journal in the fields of both limnology and oceanography.
The "moving wall" represents the time period between the last issue
available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal.
Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a
publisher has elected to have a "zero" moving wall, so their current
issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year
moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.
