About the Journal

Maritime Technology and Research's objective
Oceans are important for human. We have relied on them, extending from coasts to offshore zones. The sea is much more than just a “highway made of water” to transport goods and people. Coastal areas are valuable. Coastal protection and management are important for community development. Sustainable exploitations of oceanic resources while managing marine pollution are required. Understanding biological interactions amongst marine organisms living in the ocean is a foundation of sustainable use of maritime resources.    

Maritime Technology and Research (MTR) (E-ISSN: 2651-205X) was launched to celebrate the 12th Anniversary of Faculty of International Maritime Studies, Kasetsart University, Thailand. It is financially supported by Faculty of International Maritime Studies.

MTR is a peer-reviewed journal covering all areas of maritime technology. It 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, MTR also publishes review papers on recent topics of interest. The journal implements a double-blinded review system with at least 2 expert reviewers. However, any article whose corresponding author is from Thailand, will be reviewed by at least 3 expert reviewers.

Submissions and publications are free-of-charge. Articles are freely available to all readers without having to pay or register.

MTR’s editorial committee members are academically well-known, ensuring high standard of the journal. I formally invite authors and readers to participate with MTR. Hopefully, MTR can be a venue for all of us to share our knowledge, advancing maritime technology. I welcome all submissions with great pleasure.

Finally, with great pleasure, I would like to introduce our founding team members;
Founding editor: Associate Professor Dr. Cherdvong Saengsupavanich
Journal manager: Mr. Kosin Sirirak
MTR Team: Miss Risa Fongsaichol

Maritime Technology and Research's peer review process
After submission, MTR will screen for plagiarism by its internal system. If the plagiarism percentage is greater than 20 % (except the reference list), the submission will be rejected immediately. MTR implements a double-blinded review system with at least 2 expert reviewers. However, an article whose corresponding author is from Thailand will be reviewed by 3 expert reviewers, as indicated by the Thai government's announcement on 5 July 2021. In addition to original, full-length contributions presenting new research and developments in the field, MTR also publishes review papers on recent topics of interest. All reviewers for MTR must have publications in journals listed in SCOPUS. In this way, MTR can ensure that comments from the reviewers are academically sound and thier recommendations are useful for authors. Once, the reviewers accept to review, it will take 3-4 weeks to complete the review. If a reviewer recommends "re-submit for review", the revised manuscript will be sent back to the same reviewer for re-evaluation. If a reviewer recommends "revision", the Editor-in-chief will perform a thorough check on how the authors address all reviewers'comments, and decide whether or not the revision should be sent to the same reviewers for re-assessment. A second revision is possible.

Maritime Technology and Research's article types
Maritime Technology and Research accepts research and review articles. It publishes original research articles that contribute advancements to maritime society. Review articles on topics of current interest are also welcome. There is no page limit as long as the article contains necessary content. MTR only accepts articles written in English.

Maritime Technology and Research's submission and publication charge policy
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.
