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.

Journal of Ship Production and Design is free online to all SNAME members. To access the journal click on "View Previous Issues (Volume 26 to present)" and log in using your SNAME username and password.

This Quarterly publication publishes highly technical papers on applied research in hydrodynamics, propulsion, ship motions, structures, and vibrations. While the Journal of Ship Research requires that papers present the results of research that advances ship and ocean science and engineering, most contributions bear directly on other disciplines, such as civil and mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, and numerical analysis. High quality papers are contributed from the U.S., Canada and overseas, with representation from established authorities as well as new researchers.

ISSN# 1548-6559



Published by The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) and SNAME's SC-2 Sailing Craft Panel, the Journal of Sailboat Technology (ISSN 1548-6559) is an online peer-reviewed journal whose objective is to provide a medium for the publication of research achievements and engineering practices in this field.

It is intended to cover not only fundamental studies on analytical and numerical models, theoretical developments, tank and wind tunnel experiments, but also results and analysis of full scale experiments. Topics include: 

  • Sail Design, Analysis and Optimization
  • Rig Concepts
  • Resistance and Motions
  • Stability
  • Hull and Appendage Design and Optimization
  • Performance Prediction
  • Tacking Analysis
  • Race Simulation
  • Weather Routing
  • Full Scale Instrumentation
  • Handicap Systems
  • Structures and Structural Analysis
  • Materials and Construction Methods
  • Structural Optimization of Hull, Appendages and Rigs
  • Sailboat Systems

This important volume has been published annually since 1893. The Transactions provide a compilation of select papers presented before the Society during the calendar year and the Society’s national award winning papers for that year.   The contents are divided into sections containing archival papers of exceptional quality, primarily drawn from the Society's Annual Meeting papers, which include written discussions and authors closures; SNAME major award and prize winning papers; graduate and undergraduate student award winning papers; and significant papers of such high quality and intrinsic value as to warrant capturing them in the Transactions. The volume also includes a summary of the Society's business as reported at its Annual Meeting (

Current volume of Transactions is available for purchase in hardcover, softcover, and on CD.  Please contact SNAME's Publications Lead,
