The Asia-Pacific Journal of Ocean Law and Policy explores ocean law and policy issues in the most economically dynamic region in the world: the Asia-Pacific. These ocean spaces are crucial to international trade and are becoming increasingly important in terms of marine resources and services. Hotly contested, the region is subject to enhanced threats such as pollution, conflicting activities, over-exploitation and environmental degradation. Escalating ocean governance challenges coupled with mounting tensions in the region have made studies focusing on this area an especially pertinent topic for scholarly research and consideration in securing and maintaining peace in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.

As of 2021, Brill Research Perspectives in the Law of the Sea is no longer published as a journal by Brill, but will continue as a book series.

Brill Research Perspectives in the Law of the Sea advances scholarship in the international law of the sea with a publication that combines analysis of theoretical and conceptual frameworks, recent thematic trends, contemporary judicial decisions, and recent state practice. The publication focuses not only on global developments but also on regional and -- where appropriate -- sub-regional developments and perspectives. All areas of the law of the sea are treated, including maritime zones, navigational rights and freedoms, resource management, maritime regulation and enforcement, marine environmental management, oceans governance, and dispute resolution. Particular attention is given to those analyses and developments that are at the forefront of the law of the sea, some of which may be at the intersection with other areas of international law.

Brill Research Perspectives in the Law of the Sea's primary readership includes academics, researchers, practitioners, policy makers, educators, and graduate and undergraduate students.
As of Volume 8 (1993) the International Journal of Estuarine and Coastal Law is published under the name of The International Journal of Marine and Coastal Law.

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.
