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 and the environment is a foundation of sustainable use of the sea.    

          Realizing the importance of the oceans, Maritime Technology and Research (MTR) aims to be 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.


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 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.  

          Submission and Publication fee: Free of Charge
