Special Issue "Offshore and Onshore Marine Renewable Energy"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 21 April 2021.
Interests: hydraulic machines; pumps as turbines; marine turbines; renewable energies
In recent years, much attention has been paid to renewable energies, particularly marine resources, which have huge potential but are, at present, exploited only to a small degree. Several difficulties hinder the development of new devices, from the installation of platforms (floating or fixed on the seabed) and the high costs associated with their construction to maintenance problems. In addition, marine machines have yet to be optimized, and new specially designed prototypes must be built on a significant scale and tested in suitable test centres, which can be very expensive. The Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is delighted to announce a timely Special Issue on “Offshore and Onshore Marine Renewable Energies”, with the aim of addressing topics related to stand-alone marine installations or arrays of marine installations. The Special Issue intends to cover, but will not be limited to, the following topics:
- wave and tidal resource assessment and characterization;
- tidal current modeling;
- the design of novel wave and tidal energy converters;
- the design of blades for marine machines;
- hydrodynamic and electrical components for wave and tidal machines;
- integration of control and power systems for wave and tidal arrays; and
- hybrid wave, tidal, and offshore wind arrays.

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 papers will be 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 1800 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.
