Maritime Technology and Research (MTR), is a peer-reviewed journal covering all areas of Maritime Technology. The MTR provides a forum for discussion of current issues, new idea and developments, as well as breakthroughs in coastal and oceanic arenas. The range of topics extends from coastal zone to deep ocean, including engineering, environment, logistics, as well as other management aspects such as maritime policy, maritime education, and well-being of seafarers.
In addition to original, full-length contributions presenting new research and developments in the field, the MTR also publishes review papers authored by leading authorities. The journal implements a double-blinded review system with at least 2 expert reviewers. Supported by Faculty of International Maritime Studies (Kasetsart University, Thailand), MTR aims to be a venue for researchers to share advancement. We believe that sharing research results without publication charge involved can strengthen our maritime community. We do not want to make profit.
Submissions and publications are free-of-charge. Readers can freely download articles without any fee or registration.
