The first volume of State of the Planet (SP) will be the 7th edition of the Copernicus Marine Service Ocean State Report (OSR 7). While SP generally applies an initial posting of new manuscripts as preprints, followed by a public peer review with interactive public discussion, OSR 7 will not disclose the report chapters before completion of the peer review. That means, the manuscripts will only be accessible for reviewers and the OSR 7 report chapters will be freely accessible once they are finally accepted, produced, and published. Please revisit this page in September 2022.
