Special Issue Information
The attraction of living along coastal regions, where approximately 50% of the world's population lives at present, has resulted in this space being under considerable pressure, which is exacerbated by various factors, such as sea level rise, climate change, and extreme events. Facing these threats, the most urgent problems for the coastal community are to assess the impacts of climate change and to present sustainable solutions for coastal areas. It is a matter of urgency to reconsider our traditional approaches to the management of coastal issues and to rapidly develop a new paradigm of “Sustainable Coastal Management”.
In the present Special Issue, we aim to address the theme of “Sustainable Coastal Management” from a multitude of complementary sub-themes that take into consideration the adaptation and sustainability of natural coastal resources and built environments. We invite the submissions of reviews and original contributions related to the technical, legal, ecological, economical, and even social behaviors, as well as policy issues related to the sustainable uses and management of coastal zones and marine resources.
The Special Issue welcomes submissions on the field of sustainable coastal management research addressing, but not limited to, the following topics:
- Sustainable coastal management;
- Definition and evaluation of coastal management sustainability indices;
- Climate change-adaptation planning and management of coastal zones;
- Marine spatial planning;
- Integral coastal management and planning;
- Marine spatial planning;
- Coastal engineering and ecosystems;
- Nature-based solutions for coastal zones;
- Innovative coastal engineering;
- Green coastal engineering;
- Socioeconomic impacts and risks on vulnerable coastal zones;
- Coastal risk assessment and reduction;
- Coastal vulnerability;
- Resilience of coastal zones;
- Remote sensing applied to coastal management;
- Novel coastal modeling approach;
- Coastal hazard and vulnerability analysis;
- Success story of sustainable coastal-adaptation management.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
