Charges, waivers and sponsorships

Maritime Studies has recently made a transition from a subscription-based to an open access journal. As articles can now be freely obtained on the internet, this increases reach and readership, and thereby benefits authors and readers alike. The cost of open access publishing requires authors to pay an article-processing charge (APC). However, Maritime Studies possesses a generous system of APC waivers and sponsorships. See our article-processing charge details for more information.

Aims and scope

Maritime Studies is an international peer-reviewed journal on the social dimensions of coastal and marine issues throughout the world. The journal is a venue for theoretical and empirical research relevant to a wide range of academic social science disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, geography, history and political science. Space is especially given to develop academic concepts and debate. We invite original research papers, reviews and viewpoints and welcome proposals for special issues that make a distinctive contribution to contemporary discussion around maritime and coastal use, development and governance. The journal provides a rigorous but constructive review process and rapid publication, and is accessible to new researchers, including postgraduate students and early career academics.
