Journal History

Journal of Marine Science and Technology (JMST), published by the National Taiwan Ocean University, was inaugurated since 1993, and indexed in EI (Engineering village – Compendex) and SCIE (Web of Science) since 1999 and 2007, respectively. JMST is the first journal indexed by double I (EI and SCI) among university journals in Taiwan.

In order to enhance our internationalization and competitiveness, JMST commissioned the Digital Common Elsevier platform to host and promote the publication. On April 2021, JMST migrated to the hosting Digital Commons Elsevier platform and uses the well-known Editorial Manager system for authors to submit, track and publish manuscripts online.
