JOURNAL OF OCEAN AND
SHIP TECHNOLOGY (JOST)
Rapid expansion in sectors of ocean
and ship technology is imperative for growth. Understanding
the present technological needs and keeping in mind
diversification of this broad area and the inter-disciplinary
nature of research contributing to ocean and ship
technology, this journal Journal
of Ocean and Ship Technology (JOST) is
being launched aimed at cooperating with Universities,
Industries and Research Laboratories.
Published on behalf of the Department of Ocean Engineering
& Naval Architecture, Indian Institute of Technology
Kharagpur, which has, since its inception in 1952,
made giant strides in imparting the best technical
education and in the past five decades made significant
contributions to the development of Shipbuilding industry,
the Navy and allied offshore industries, the issues
will be published in January and July each year.
