The ICES Journal of Marine Science (ICES JMS) strives to advance marine science by making judicious use of themed article sets (TSs). TSs are series of coordinated contributions – introduced by a synthetic overview – on a selected topic. Both individually and collectively, TSs are instrumental in focusing attention, triggering opinions and stimulating ideas, discussion and activity in specific research fields.
We invite you to participate in a TS entitled Ethical and practical dimensions of engaging fishing communities in research practices.
We welcome contributions from, but not limited to, ecologists, social scientists, fisheries scientists, anthropologists, economists, artists, geographers and political scientists working anywhere in the world. We also invite representatives of fishing communities, policymakers, managers, NGOs and other fisheries stakeholders to share their views and experiences. In recognizing the disparity in research capacity globally, we also encourage discussion on the proposed topics, including from researchers, communities, policy makers, managers etc. who have not experienced issues with over-engagement.
