International Journal of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering provides a forum for engineers and scientists from a wide range of disciplines to present and discuss various phenomena in the utilization and preservation of ocean environment. Without being limited by the traditional categorization, it is encouraged to present advanced technology development and scientific research, as long as they are aimed for more and better human engagement with ocean environment. Topics include, but not limited to: marine hydrodynamics; structural mechanics; marine propulsion system; design methodology & practice; production technology; system dynamics & control; marine equipment technology; materials science; under-water acoustics; satellite observations; and information technology related to ship and marine systems; ocean energy systems; marine environmental engineering; maritime safety engineering; polar & arctic engineering; coastal & port engineering; aqua-cultural engineering; sub-sea engineering; and specialized water-craft engineering. International Journal of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering is published quarterly by the Society of Naval Architects of Korea. In addition to original, full-length, refereed papers, review articles by leading authorities and articulated technical discussions of highly technical interest are also published.
Peer Review Process Submitted manuscripts will be sent to peer reviewers, unless they are either out of scope or below threshold for the journal, or the presentation or written English is of an unacceptably low standard. They will generally be reviewed by two experts with the aim of reaching a first decision as soon as possible. A third reviewer, generally one of the Editorial Board members, will be used where necessary. Reviewers are asked to declare any competing interests.
Typescript preparation The original typescript should be submitted electronically in A4 size format, with a word count of 5,000 - 7,000 (excluding figures), following the submission requirements described on the Journal's website. A final paper which would exceed 7000 words or occupy more than 20 pages of the Journal may be returned for abridgement.
The text of the paper should include title, abstract, text, references and notes, tables, figure captions, figures, the names of authors with affiliation, and acknowledgments.
All papers must be written in English. If English is not your first language, please hire professional English editing service to proofread your paper. The required electronic document format is MS Word. View sample copies of articles published in back issues. Please assist us by following these guidelines:
Title : as short as possible
Abstract: approximately 100 words, maximum 150
Keywords : approximately 10-15 words or phrases. Keywords are important for online searching.
Address : position, department, name of institution, full postal address and email address for each author
Biographical notes : approximately 100 words per author, maximum 150.
References and notes JNAOE uses the Harvard (author and date) short reference system for citations in the text with a detailed alphabetical list at the end of the paper. For example 'Hamel (2000) suggests ...' or 'Lee and Kim (2005) found that ...' or 'A study of economic change (Nelson and Winter, 1982) has shown that ...' Footnotes should be avoided, but any short, succinct notes making a specific point, may be placed in number order following the alphabetical list of references.
References should be made only to works that are published, accepted for publication (not merely 'submitted'), or available through libraries or institutions. Any other source should be qualified by a note regarding availability.
Full reference should include all authors' names and initials, date of publication, title of paper, title of publication (italics), volume and issue number (of a journal), publisher and form (books, conference proceedings), page numbers. Please use new Harvard format above for all references. For more information on Harvard style, visit online guides e.g., Harvard System of Referencing Guide.
Figures All illustrations, whether diagrams or photographs, are referred to as Figures. They should be black and white, not colour, and numbered sequentially. Please place them at the end of the paper, rather than interspersed in text.
Please prepare all figures, especially line diagrams, to the highest possible standards. Bear in mind that lettering may be reduced in size by a factor of 2 or 3, and that fine lines may disappear.
Author list After final review, author list can not be changed. Author list for the final review is also final.
The editorial board is participating in a growing community of Similarity Check System's users in order to ensure that the content published is original and trustworthy. Similarity Check is a medium that allows for comprehensive manuscripts screening, aimed to eliminate plagiarism and provide a high standard and quality peer-review process.
