Description of Journal

IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering

(ISSN 0364-9059)


The IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering (IEEE-JOE) is a quarterly journal published by the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (IEEE OES) whose field of interest includes all aspects of science, engineering and technology that address research, development, and operations pertaining to all bodies of water. This includes the creation of new capabilities and technologies from concept design through prototypes, testing and operational systems to sense, explore, analyze, understand, develop, use and responsibly manage natural resources.


Types of Contributions:

 The IEEE-JOE publishes peer-reviewed articles and technical communications, as well as letters-to-the-editor.

     * Peer-reviewed Journal Articles are well-rounded treatments of a problem area describing an original contribution to ocean science and technology. These articles may also represent comprehensive contributions of a theoretical or analytical nature.

     * The peer-reviewed Technical Communication is a concise and focused study or analysis. Literature and technology reviews, system performance and tradeoff studies, innovative applications of existing technology, are all valid technical communication contributions.

     * Letters-to-the-editor are scholarly opinions on articles published in the Journal. Authors of the articles in question are given the right-of-reply. Letters should be submitted directly to the Editor-in-Chief (joe-eic@oceanicengineering.org).

Throughout the year, collections of papers focusing on specific topics are published as Special Issues. Such issues may contain also a regular section with articles and technical communications on other topics.

The final decision concerning the classification and publication of any submitted manuscript is the responsibility of the Editors.

In accordance with IEEE policies regarding open access (OA) content, the Journal of Oceanic Engineering is now a “hybrid” journal. This means that authors have the choice between the traditional publication model and an OA model. The former is the familiar procedure in which an accepted article is available on IEEEXplore to subscribers of that service. Under the OA model the author of an accepted manuscript chooses to pay a fee, such that the manuscript is posted on IEEEXplore and available, free, to all. The current discounted OA fee is $1950 per article. Additional charges  (e.g. over-length and/or color figures in print) will be billed separately.
