The Journal of Marine Science and Application (JMSA) aims to provide a platform for scientists and engineers in a wide range of topics on marine science and engineering. JMSA publishes high-level peer-reviewed research on the subjects in the field of theoretical and experimental investigations, that explore naval architecture, ocean engineering, marine renewable energy, underwater technology, polar and arctic engineering, marine engineering, corrosion prevention, ocean acoustics, automatic navigation, marine environmental engineering, marine science among others. JMSA welcomes submissions of papers around the world on all the above topics, and it has no page limitations and no publication fees.

Journal of Marine Science and Application (JMSA) is co-published quarterly by the Chinese Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (CSNAME), Harbin Engineering University (HEU) and Springer-Verlag.

CSNAME was established in 1943 with the aim of promoting the development of the scientific and technological level of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering in China. The number of members is nearly 30 000, mainly from China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC), China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC), China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), China Classification Society (CCS), Harbin Engineering University (HEU), and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The society has conducted international cooperation and exchange with many countries such as the USA, UK, Germany, Holland, Russia, Ukraine, Japan, and Korea. Harbin Engineering University is one of the key universities in China with strong teaching and research & development capabilities in the field of naval architecture and ocean engineering.

JMSA is a peer-reviewed journal whose papers go through double-blind process. Each article submitted on the ScholarOne Manuscripts shall be sent to two reviewers. If the reviewers hold different opinions about the article, a third one will be chosen to help judge the validity of the paper. All manuscripts are reviewed by international reviewers from such countries as Australia, Brazil, Canada, Iran, India, Japan, Korea, Norway, Portugal, UK, and USA, etc.
