Since 1984, The Journal of NOAMI has been published by the National Oceanographic and Maritime Institute (NOAMI), Dhaka, Bangladesh, two times a year (June and December). The Journal publishes original research papers on physical, chemical and biological aspects of the oceans, the estuaries, the coasts and their resource utilization and Blue Economy. However, comprehensive review manuscript on relevant topics is also welcome. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of previously unpublished research to the Editor for publication in The Journal of NOAMI. Authors should adhere to the following guidelines to facilitate review and publication


The manuscript should be organized in the following order: (1) Title, (2) Authors and their affiliations, (3) Abstract, (4) Keywords, (5) Introduction, (6) Materials and Methods, (7) Results, (8) Discussion, (9) Conclusion, (10) Acknowledgement, (11) References, and (12) Appendix (if any). The page limit of Full Paper is 16 journal pages and Short Communication is 6 journal pages.

TITLE should clearly and succinctly portray the contents of the paper, and should not be more than 20 words. ABSTRACT should not exceed 250 words and should clearly summarize the paper’s major issues, methodology, main results, major discussion points and recommendations. KEYWORDS should include a maximum of five keywords. GRAPHS, PHOTOGRAPHS and DIAGRAMS should be referred to as “Fig.” in the text and consecutively numbered. A detailed, self-explanatory caption should be provided for each “Fig.”. Since the Journal is printed in black and white, contrasts in the graphs and photographs should be considered for grey-scale. Soft-copy of the original photographs should be provided in PNG or JPEG or BMP format. TABLES should be numbered consecutively and have self-explanatory titles. All tables must be provided in editable format rather than as image files. Providing the same information in diagrams and tables should be avoided. All scientific and technical data should be presented in the International System of Units (SI), except in unavoidable circumstances.


Should be cited in the text by using the last name of the author(s) and the year of publication in the style of Khan (2001) or (Khan, 2001) according to context. Papers written by three or more authors should be referred to as Hossain et al. (2001) or (Hossain et al., 2001). References should be arranged chronologically in the text, e.g. (Smith et al., 1978; Khan, 2001; Wahab and Islam, 2016). References should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper. Examples of the correct style to be used when listing references are:

These should not exceed 6 journal pages including tables and figures. The manuscript should not have any headed sections, but Keywords, Acknowledgements (if any) and References.


All manuscripts will be reviewed by the expert(s). The submission may, however, be returned without review if, in the opinion of the Editorial Board, is not appropriate for the Journal, is of poor quality, or fails to follow the Journal’s format. The Editor will notify the corresponding author of the acceptance, necessary revision, or rejection of the manuscript. Authors communicated for a revision should submit a revised manuscript within one month of the communication. Failure in doing so may require a resubmission or even result in rejection of the manuscript.


Proof-reading is the responsibility of the corresponding author. Only corrections of type-setting errors are accepted. Proof could be printed out, marked and sent back to the Editor. Alternatively, corrections could be done in proof pdf file or detailed out in an e-mail. Substantial changes at the proof stage are not allowed without the Editor’s approval. In that case, the Editor should be communicated before returning the proof. Authors who expect to be away from their workstations are requested to give notice of their temporary postal addresses with dates. Corrections not returned by the deadline will not be taken into consideration and the Editor’s decision will be final.


The corresponding author will receive 3 reprints free of cost and a PDF version of the published paper could be sent by e-mail upon request.


There is no page charge for manuscripts complying with the page limits and having black & while figures only. The Journal would charge additional page and coloured photograph charges, which will be communicated to the corresponding author in due course.


The corresponding author needs to declare, on behalf of all co-authors, that the submitted manuscript is original, that it was not published/submitted elsewhere, that the standard publication ethics and norms have been abiding by, and that the copyright is transferred to the NOAMI.
