Open Marine Archive info

Automatic indexing of the archive by Google Scholar and similar web engines results in better distribution, visibility and use of publications, leading to more citations and consequently a higher impact of research results.                                                                            

The success of OMA is based on the active support of the marine research community. All marine scientists are invited to post their own publications in this Belgian digital marine archive.

OMA is free to use. However, some basic rules do apply:

  • Digital documents can be downloaded and saved for personal use only.
  • Reproduction or further distribution, partly or in whole, in any format, of these documents, is not allowed
  • Each publication should be cited to its original format. Please use the reference as presented in the Open Marine Archive
  • When using parts of, or whole publications in your own work, permission from the author(s) or copyright holder(s) is always needed.
