Worldwide there are approximately 3,000 merchant ports and the work of the Harbour Master can vary widely from country to country and from port to port even within the same country.
Professor Adam Weintrit, Chairman of the TransNav Conference, Rector of Gdynia Maritime University and Editor-in-Chief of TransNav Journal has informed us of the above event.
The Conference is jointly organized by the Faculty of Navigation of the Gdynia Maritime University and The Nautical Institute.
Submission of papers
An electronic version of the paper in English shall be submitted to the website https://transnav2021.umg.edu.pl in MS Word and PDF format.
Papers are to be prepared according to editorial advice available here: firstname.lastname@example.org and should be sent to the Conference Office. The paper will be formatted according to TransNav Journal format by the TransNav team.
The official deadline for paper submission is 1 April 2023.
The conference fee for participants with the paper presentation will be 600 Euro. If you resign from active participation in the conference, the fee for the article to be published in the TransNav Journal will be 450 Euro.
Papers will be reviewed by the members of the Scientific Programme Committee. Qualified papers submitted on time will be published in subsequent issues of the quarterly TransNav, The International Journal on Marine Navigation and Safety of Sea Transportation (http://www.transnav.eu ) in years 2023-2024 (in March, June, September and December issues). This journal is indexed by the following services: Scopus, Web of Science Core Collection - Emerging Sources Citation Index, EBSCOhost, Directory of Open Access Journals, TRID Database, Index Copernicus Journals Master List and others.
The reviewed texts of articles together with reviewers’ comments will be dispatched to authors for possible changes and modifications, if any. A conference fee is required for the article to be published. It would be appreciated if the conference fee is paid before 1 May 2023.
Full papers will be peer-reviewed before acceptance, to maintain the quality of the final publication in order to meet the requirements of the academic and research community. The Conference will rely on its Committees as the main contributing body to the review process and acceptance of papers.
