WMU Journal of Maritime Affairs
Aims and Scope
The WMU Journal of Maritime Affairs (JOMA) is an internationally peer-reviewed journal that covers such subject areas as maritime safety, maritime energy, maritime administration, management and operations, and marine environment protection and gives special attention to human factors, impacts of technology, and policy-making in this context. JOMA is for academics, researchers and professionals in the maritime industry. It aims at serving the international maritime community by presenting current thinking and evidence-based arguments on those subjects of topical interest, reporting on relevant research findings and addressing inter-relationships among those subjects in a multi-disciplinary manner to improve the efficacy of maritime transport.
The Journal accepts articles and book reviews for publication. Articles should be conceptually reasoned and/or empirically data-driven. Articles reviewing relevant literature in a systematic manner are also considered for publication. Reviewing recently published books in the field is welcomed for publication.
JOMA has a section dedicated to the activities of the International Association of Maritime Universities (IAMU). The IAMU Section is focused on maritime education and training (MET). Articles and book reviews to be accepted for publication in the IAMU Section follow the Journal’s guidelines. Issues of Contemporary Interest, Reports and Comments in the field of MET are not always covered by traditional research; however, valuable lessons could be learned from best practices or critical discussions from a perspective of practitioners. IAMU and JOMA encourage experts in the field to submit their views to the IAMU Section.
Authoritative voices and leading figures in the Journal domains are occasionally invited to submit an article as an Invited Paper. A well prepared proposal for a Special Issue is also welcome. More can be obtained from the editor-in-chief.

This special issue will focus on insights on maritime safety and security issues, the socio-economic and political impact of the crisis across the maritime sector, and in general the future of maritime transport beyond Covid-19. It will try to uncover measures and practices adopted as a reaction to the pandemic with a view to examining their success, extract lessons for future scenarios, identify gaps in Covid-19 response, and enhance the resilience of the maritime sector.

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
