Journals in Marine GIS, Ocean Informatics (including those welcoming articles and readers interested in marine data and metadata publishing, discovery, documentation and accessibility)

Coastal Management- domain specific - moderate but growing informatics readership
Computers & Geosciences - domain specific - moderate oceanographic readership
Deep-Sea Research II - domain specific with growing informatics readership

Example: Baker, K.S. and Chandler, C.L., Enabling long-term oceanographic research: Changing data practices, information management strategies and informatics. Deep Sea Res. II, 55, doi:10.1016/j.dsr2.2008.05.009, 2008.
Example: Stocks, K. I., Condit, C., Qian, X., Brewin, P. E., and Gupta, A., Bringing together an ocean of information: An extensible data integration framework for biological oceanography. Deep Sea Res. II, 56 (19-20): 1804-1811, doi:10.1016/j.dsr2.2009.05.022, 2009.

Earth Science Informatics
Eos, Transactions of the American Geophysical Union - peer-reviewed newsletter for very short articles
Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems (aka "G-Cubed") - domain specific, with papers welcomed as technical briefs or data briefs as well - huge oceanographic readership

Example: Helly, J., H. Staudigel, and A. Koppers, Scalable models of data sharing in Earth sciences, Geochem. Geophys. Geosyst., 4 (1), 1010, doi:10.1029/2002GC000318, 2003.
Example: Spear, F.S., Hallett, B., Pyle, J.M., Adali, S., Szymanski, K., Waters, A., Linder, Z., Pearce, S.O., Fyffe, M., Goldfarb, D., Glickenhouse, N., and Buletti, H., MetPetDB: A database for metamorphic geochemistry, Geochem. Geophys. Geosyst., 12 (12), 1010, doi:10.1029/2009GC002766, 2009.

GEOConnexion - non-peer-reviewed trade journal series with interests in marine data (UK and Europe, Middle East, Africa)
GEOInformatics - non-peer-reviewed trade journal, 2008 special issue on marine data (Europe)
International Journal of Digital Earth - domain specific but with a smaller oceanographic readership (reprint or DOI would have to be distributed to ocean community)
International Journal of Spatial Data Infrastructure Research
International Ocean Systems - non-peer-reviewed trade journal (Europe)
Journal of Coastal Conservation: Planning & Management - this peer-reviewed outlet gaining great traction with high-quality coastal/marine GIS papers
Limnology & Oceanography
Marine Geodesy
Ocean & Coastal Management - domain specific - moderate but growing informatics readership
Sea Technology - non-peer-reviewed trade journal (U.S.)
Transactions in GIS - domain specific but with a poor oceanographic readership (reprint or DOI would have to be distributed to ocean community)
