The APCRS 2023 Organising Committee is working with Bulletin of Marine Science to provide an opportunity to authors of abstracts accepted to the 5th APCRS to submit a full paper, which will be peer-reviewed (according to journal’s regular practice) and considered for publication in a Special Issue "Proceedings of the Asia-Pacific Coral Reef Symposium 2023".

The submission window for full papers will open after the conclusion of the Symposium (around July 2023). Participants are encouraged to submit a manuscript of the presented work for publication consideration by 30 September 2023.

There are no publication charges for the article for subscription-only access.

The Bulletin of Marine Science is offering generous discounts for open access of accepted manuscripts. The APCRS2023 Organising Committee also aspires to contribute to the partial fees for open access for all accepted manuscripts.

Please direct all enquiries on matters relating to the proceedings to Dr. Zeehan Jaafar.
