The WMU Journal of Maritime Affairs (JoMA) is an international journal that covers the subject areas of maritime safety, marine environment protection and shipping operations and gives, in this context, special attention to human factors and the impact of technology. JoMA is for scientists and professionals in maritime administration, industry and education. It aims at serving the international maritime community by presenting fresh ideas and current thinking on subjects of topical interest, reporting on relevant research findings and addressing interrelationships between safety, environment protection and efficiency of maritime transport. Different types of papers are accepted for publication: Articles, Issues of Contemporary Interest, Reports and Comments as well as Book Reviews. Articles should present genuine research findings. All articles are peer reviewed by at least two reviewers. Reviewers are usually members of the editorial board. However, relevant experts are asked to review submitted manuscripts if the topic of a manuscript suggests this. Issues of Contemporary Interest are not always covered by traditional and genuine research. In addition, valuable lessons can be learnt through reports on best practice or critical discussions from the practitioner’s point of view. This is why JoMA strongly encourages experts in the maritime industry and administrations to express their views on issues of contemporary interest. Papers published as Issues of Contemporary Interest are also peer-reviewed. In order to facilitate research activities within the scope of the JoMA Reports and Comments can be published. This allows scientists to voice opinions on manuscripts published in JoMA, but also to stimulate discussions on areas that would require further research. Reviews of conferences or seminar can be considered for publications under Reports and Comments when deemed appropriate., JoMA considers the inclusion of book reviews if suitable reviews of books relevant to the scope of the Journal are available.
