The Journal of Ocean Technology (JOT) publishes peer-reviewed technical papers that describe cutting edge research in a chosen theme area. Papers should present the results of new research in ocean technology, science, or engineering, and be no more than 7,500 words in length. All papers are subjected to a rigorous peer-review process.

The JOT is also interested in publishing essays that present well-informed observations and conclusions, and identify key issues for the oceans community in a concise manner. Essays are written at a level that would be understandable by a non-specialist. Essays should be both educational and thought provoking. As essays are less formal than a technical paper, they do not include abstracts or a listing of references. Typical essay lengths range from 1,000 to 3,000 words.
