is pleased to announce
the launch of the bi-annual
issues will be published in
June and December each year
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.
