Maritime Technology and Research is officially regarded as one of Thailand's best journals in the field of maritime research. 

We are proud to say that we are now one of the top journals in Thailand.

We spent only 3 years from the very beginning to reach the top position in Thailand.

We are very grateful for our editorial members, authors, reviewers, and readers of Maritime Technology and Research.

We hope to receive your supports. We aim to reach a higher level by being indexed in other famous database.

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.

MTR implements a double-blinded review system with at least 2 expert reviewers.  However, Thai authors 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. In a case of a major revision, the revised manuscript will be sent back to the same reviewers for re-evaluation.  There is a possibility for the second revision if the reviewers are not satisfied. In a case of a minor revision, the Editor-in-chief will perform a thorough check without sending the revision back to the 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.
