Original and timely technical papers addressing problems of shipyard techniques and production of merchant and naval ships appear in this quarterly publication. Since its inception, the Journal of Ship Production and Design (formerly the Journal of Ship Production) has been a forum for peer-reviewed, professionally edited papers from academic and industry sources. As such it has influenced the worldwide development of ship production engineering as a fully qualified professional discipline. The expanded scope seeks papers in additional areas, specifically ship design, including design for production, plus other marine technology topics, such as ship operations, shipping economics, and safety. Each issue contains a well-rounded selection of technical papers relevant to marine professionals.
JSPD uses conventional, single-blind peer review. Two reviews are required per paper, reviewers can be suggested by the authors (or reviewers to be excluded), however, one of the journal editors makes the final determination. The review standard is consistent with top-quality academic journals (Ocean Engineering, JSR etc.), namely that the content be original and have archival value (e.g. not direct applications or a repeat of already-available data).
