Scientists replicated a landmark study to determine changes in coral sea temperature tolerance over time. In the three species of Hawaiian corals retested, bleaching occurred later, with higher survivorship and growth rates than the same species of corals in 1970. However, scientists warn that temperatures are rising faster than corals can change.
Advisors and Academic Editors at PeerJ are experienced researchers who are experts in their respective fields. As a general rule, Academic Editors must be at Principle Investigator level or above and have published 25 or more peer-reviewed journal articles. Editors are vetted before being appointed, and their decisions are overseen for consistency.
148 institutions have prepaid PeerJ memberships, helping reduce publishing costs and making it easier for their researchers to publish Open Access.
PeerJ works with major conferences and societies through sponsorships and curated collections to highlight societal member and conference delegate work. Collections are available for in-depth peer-reviewed research articles as well as conference abstracts.
