Taylor & Francis Group and IMarEST (Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology) are pleased to announce a new publishing partnership for 2015. Beginning in January, Taylor & Francis will publish and distribute IMarEST’s highly regarded journals: Journal of Marine Engineering & Technology (JMET) and Journal of Operational Oceanography (JOO).
Published three times a year, Journal of Marine Engineering & Technology contains peer reviewed papers covering research, theory and scientific studies concerned with all aspects of marine engineering and technology. Journal of Operational Oceanography is published biannually and publishes papers from the commercial sector and the academic sector in this rapidly expanding field of research. Both publications are listed in the Thomson Reuters Journal Citation Reports (JCR).
David Loosley, Chief Executive of IMarEST, said: “We are delighted to work with Taylor & Francis to further enhance the Institute’s technical journals that have provided our membership with such rich technical information for many years. Our journals carry the latest research in Marine Engineering and Operational Oceanography, and this partnership will ensure that these are distributed to a much wider audience for the benefit of the maritime community.”
Dr David Green, Global Journals Publishing Director at Taylor & Francis, added: “We are delighted to enter a new publishing partnership with IMarEST from 2015. We are excited to see two highly prestigious journals join us and look forward to working closely with IMarEST in publishing world class research, serving members, authors and subscribers. We look forward to bringing the tangible benefits of improved access and reach, rapid production, high quality services to authors and an industry-leading publishing platform to this important collaboration.”
