Ewtec 2013, hosted in Aalborg, Denmark, saw the launch of the new International Journal of Marine Energy (IJOME) with Professor AbuBakr Bahaj as the Editior-in-Chief.
The IJOME will aim to publish original and high quality papers covering fundamental and applied research and case studies relevant to all forms of marine/ocean energy. The Journal focuses on topics such as fundamental understanding, fluid mechanics, design, modelling and optimisation of devices and arrays/farms, environmental assessment, design codes, regulations, policy, economics, monitoring, planning evaluation, legislation and legal aspects related to sustainable exploitation of the ocean resources.
In addition to the regular original high quality articles, the journal will also feature elements of the following:
- Special issues devoted to international conferences and meetings.
- Review articles on important developments in a specific field.
- Review of books and major reports.
- Technical notes.
Professor Bahaj, head of the Sustainable Energy Research Group, says “the launch of International Journal of Marine Energy demonstrates what an exciting time this is for marine and ocean energy research. Over the past few years, there has been a growing desire within the community to boost research output and development, which has resulted in the need for a specific forum for our pioneering research.”
