Beginning with Issue 1, Volume 36, 2018, the new title, Journal of Oceanology and Limnology will be used offi cially, with the new ISSN numbers of 2096-5508 (print) and 2523-3521 (online).
In 2017, we encountered a lengthy authorization procedure on the title change due to certain technical reasons. Dozens of accepted articles had to be published online under the old title of Chinese Journal of Oceanology and Limnology (ISSNs: 0254-4059 (print) and 1993-5005 (online)) to meet the strong credential need of the authors and affi liations. Obviously, these online-published papers now will be printed out under the new title, which may cause inconvenience in the citation of these articles.
Therefore, the Editorial Offi ce and the Publishers declare that: all the articles printed in this issue shall be cited using the new title of Journal of Oceanology and Limnology, while those with the old ISSNs are listed below.
The Editorial Offi ce expresses our sincere thanks to all the involving parties for the understanding and cooperation, and apologies for the problems that may occur.
