The design, management, use, maintenance, improvement, adaptation and construction of coastal and harbour structures are at an important historical point, highly influenced by the current effects of climate change, the increasingly demanding requirements of use and the growing sizes of vessels and the need to locate them in areas increasingly exposed to more extreme oceanic climates.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish the most exciting research with respect to the abovementioned subjects, provide a rapid turn-around time regarding the review and publication process and to disseminate the articles freely for research, teaching and reference purposes.
High-quality papers directly related to the various aspects listed below are encouraged. The use of novel techniques is encouraged.
- Breakwater and coastal structure design;
- Quay design;
- Special typology design;
- Harbour agitation and resonance;
- Wave propagation numerical modelling and coastal and harbour downscaling;
- Laboratory approach for wave structure design;
- CDF modelling for wave-structure interaction;
- Downtime analysis;
- Moored ship analysis;
- Probabilistic approach for structure design;
- Working with nature design and philosophy;
- Structure resilience;
- Climate change structure adaptation.

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 2600 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.
