The Journal of Ocean Technology (JOT) production team has invited interested parties to submit technical papers that describe cutting edge research in ocean technologies for research vessel design.

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 February 28, 2013. All peer-reviewed papers in the JOT are open access.

Successful submissions will be published in the June 2013 issue.
