Special Issue Information
Energy-saving devices for ships have become a subject of intensive research and development in recent times, aiming at reducing fuel consumption and emissions and contributing to Blue Growth. A particular class deals with devices controlling the hydrodynamic flow properties, leading to drag reduction, improving the hull–propeller interaction and the propeller performance. Another important category is based on the exploitation of renewable energy, such as wind, wave and solar to improve the overall ship performance. Many of the developed systems are considered particularly suitable for retrofitting seagoing vessels. The investigation should consider not only the improvement of the calm water performance of ships but also the system operation in realistic sea-states of moderate and higher severity.
The Special Issue will welcome submissions of both review papers and research papers. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Energy-saving devices improving ship hydrodynamic performance;
- Renewable energy powered marine vehicles;
- Biomimetic systems and flapping thrusters;
- Systems augmenting ship propulsion in waves;
- Wind-assisted ship propulsion;
- Experimental and computational ship hydrodynamics.

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.
