ResumenThere is a reason for scientific journals; they have an important function. But with time, circumstances change and so does the role these journals play: they must adapt or disappear. Here we present an account of a journal, first published in 1955 under the name Investigación Pesquera (Fisheries Research) and later acquiring its current title, Scientia Marina, that continues to be a very successful marine research journal, something that is not easy to achieve. Initially set up by a small number of scientists eager to disseminate their research results and those of others, scientific journals are now part of a world that has become dominated by major publishing companies, with their own interests. In addition, while the aim is still to share knowledge, other factors come into play, such as achieving the maximum international ranking, for both journals and authors. Since our journal was first published, many years ago now, it has been able to adapt to changing, often adverse circumstances. Indeed, those responsible for the journal have had to make some very difficult decisions, even though, looking back, they can be seen to have been the correct ones. Suffice to say that, despite not being professionally managed, as the journal has always been run by scientists, who combine editorial tasks with their research, Scientia Marina is among the high ranked marine science publications internationally. In this article we summarize the 56-year history of Investigación Pesquera/Scientia Marina. We discuss the most significant and decisive challenges to the journal and the situations that have required difficult decisions. Finally, we present current information on the progress of Scientia Marina as an international scientific journal
