Devoted to assessing the state of ocean and coastal governance, knowledge, and management, the Ocean Yearbook Online provides information in one convenient resource.

Articles provide multidisciplinary expert perspectives on contemporary issues. Each new volume draws on policy studies, international relations, international and comparative law, management, marine sciences, economics, and social sciences. Each volume contains key legal and policy instruments and an annually updated global directory of ocean-related organizations.

The Yearbook is a collaborative initiative of the International Ocean Institute in Malta and the Marine & Environmental Law Institute at the Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada.

The Yearbook is also available in print.

We are pleased to announce that the Ocean Yearbook is part of a new Research4Life program launched in March 2018, providing online access to academic legal content in developing economy countries. Researchers, librarians, policy-makers, judges and legal experts from more than 115 low- and middle-income countries will receive free or low-cost online access to law and law-related academic and professional peer-reviewed content through their institutions. Access is provided by a new program, Global Online Access to Legal Information (GOALI), a multi-stakeholder initiative of the Research4Life partnership. Eligibility access to Research4Life.
