International Journal of Offshore and Polar Engineering (IJOPE), ISSN: 1053-5381


The primary aim of the IJOPE, the International Journal of Offshore and Polar Engineering, is to serve engineers and researchers worldwide by disseminating technical information of permanent interest in the fields of offshore, ocean, polar, marine, energy/resources, environment, mechanics and materials engineering.  The IJOPE is the principal periodical of The International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE), which is very active in the dissemination of technical information and organization of symposiums and conferences in these fields throughout the world.


Along with new (nonconference) papers and technical discussions, papers of permanent interest from these conferences will be considered for further review and publication.  Selected technical discussions of high technical interest and lasting values on conference papers will also be considered, as determined by the Editors.


Theoretical, experimental and engineering research papers are welcome. Brief reports of research results or outstanding engineering achievements of likely interest to readers will be published in the Technical Notes format.  All Papers and Technical Notes must be free of commercialism.  Papers are selected for publication through a peer review process based on their originality and significance, technical interest, and clarity of exposition. All papers will be reviewed critically by at least two independent and anonymous referees chosen by the Editorial Board.  All questions on policy and procedures of the IJOPE should be directed to the editors.
