The Journal of Ocean Technology (JOT) production team invites the submission of technical papers that describe cutting edge research related to ocean monitoring, data management, and decision making for its September 2013 issue. Papers should present the results of new (i.e., not previously published) research in ocean technology, science or engineering, and be no more than 7,500 words in length. All papers are subject to a rigorous peer-review process and must be submitted no later than June 14, 2013. All peer-reviewed papers in the JOT are open access. The September issue of the JOT will be distributed to subscribers around the globe and to all delegates and exhibitors at Ocean Innovation 2013, taking place in Rimouski, Quebec, in October.

The JOT is an international scientific publication distributed to 50+ countries around the globe and during international ocean technology related conferences. It is published by the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland and is designed to cater to all segments of the world’s ocean community. Its mission is to expand global knowledge and understanding of ocean technologies and to serve as a medium for publishing world-leading research and innovation that contributes to responsible ocean utilization and management. The JOT publishes research papers and essays under eight themed areas: tourism and marine recreation; science and technology; fisheries; aquaculture and biodiversity; energy; sovereignty and defence; marine transportation; and environment, safety and security. It is published quarterly in both print and electronic versions.
