Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Accurate wave energy resource assessments are fundamental to support the development of the wave energy sector, and thus provide valuable information to secure the key steps of a wave energy project and guarantee capital investment and economic return. Numerous resource assessments are therefore conducted to optimize the location, design, and selection of wave energy converters. This Special Issue aims to highlight and promote wave energy resource assessments based on the latest original approaches. Thus, we particularly encourage recent investigations with improved numerical simulations, machine-learning techniques and observations, as well as advanced analyses and interpretations discussing uncertainties and biases, data assimilation, sustainability of resources, expected performances of energy converters, potential environmental impacts of energy extraction, future wave-climate projections, new criteria, novel energy metrics, or selection indices.

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.
