    The Journal of Coastal Research (JCR) is one of the leading international journals for coastal studies and processes, and is published bi-monthly by the Coastal Education & Research Foundation [CERF]. By covering the entire field of coastal research, the JCR encompasses all subjects relevant to natural and engineered environments (freshwater, brackish, or marine) and the protection/management of their resources in the vicinity of coastlines of the world. Even though the journal broadly focuses on immediate shoreline zones, the JCR also embraces those coastal environments that either reach some indefinite distance inland or that extend seaward beyond the outer margins of the sublittoral (neritic) zone. The JCR disseminates accurate information to both the public and research specialists around the world on all aspects of coastal issues in an effort to maintain or improve the quality of our planet's shoreline resources.
