For the weeks of 12 & 19 October 2015

Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

Philosophical Transactions B has published, The good, the bad and the ugly of marine reserves for fishery yields. This work is included in a special issue of the journal on "Measuring the difference made by protected areas: methods, applications and implications for policy and practice." Speaking of special issues, Ocean and Coastal Management has just published one on "Making Marine Science Matter: Issues and Solutions from the 3rd International Marine Conservation Congress" in which all the articles are open-access.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
