Data tsunami: big data and the digital ocean
The winter 2019 issue of the Journal of Ocean Technology will focus on big data and the digital ocean. The publication is inviting the submission of technical papers, essays and short articles for this issue.
Technical papers describe cutting edge research and present the results of new (i.e., not previously published) research in ocean technology, science or engineering and be no more than 7,500 words in length. Student papers are welcome.
Essays present well-informed observations and conclusions and identify key issues for the oceans community in a concise manner. They are written at a level that would be understandable by a non-specialist. As essays are less formal than a technical paper, they do not include abstracts or a listing of references. Typical essay lengths are up to 3,000 words.
Short articles are between 450 and 900 words and focus on how a technology works, evolution or advancement of a technology plus viewpoint/commentary pieces.
Technical paper submissions: Aug. 23.
Expressions of interest (EOI) for essays or short articles: Aug. 23.
EOIs should include the proposed title / focus on the essay or short article, authors and their affiliations, plus a short overview (~200 max). Should the EOI be accepted, the author(s) will have approximately two months to prepare and submit materials.
