Purpose and Scope:

The Journal of Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering is an international resource for leading-edge, original peer-reviewed research that advances all aspects of analysis, design, and technology development in ocean, offshore, arctic, and related fields. Its main goal is to provide a forum to promote the evolution of technological progress and international cooperation, and provide timely and in-depth exchange of scientific and technical information among researchers and engineers. It emphasizes the fundamental and discussion mechanics of topics, rather than the applications and case histories. The Journal also documents significant developments in a related field or major accomplishments of a renowned scientist by programming themed issues to record these events.
