Paper Submission

ICΜET Oman 2019 welcomes high-quality submissions on the themes indicated in the Call for Papers. Submissions must be formatted in accordance with the Author Instructions provided below. Papers must be in ”Word” format and submitted electronically through the “OpenConf” platform here. Papers will not be accepted in any other format.
The papers submitted to ICMET Oman 2019 should not be under consideration with any other conference or journal.


Peer Review

All ICMET Oman 2019 paper submissions are single-blind peer-reviewed by well-qualified academics from reputable Institutions and universities and paper assignments are made to avoid any conflict of interest.  All papers are subject to editorial control.
In order to be acceptable for publication, submissions must make a new contribution to the scientific community.


Recognising Authors

Accepted papers will be published open access in the “Proceedings of the International Conference on Marine Engineering & Technology Oman”. These will be available online following the conference, with each paper assigned a Digital Object Identifier (DOI) by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST) to enable lasting accessibility and citability.  This will be provided at no cost to authors.

Exemplary contributors will be invited by the Technical Programme Advisory Committee (TPAC), to submit their paper to one of the IMarEST’s peer reviewed journals; the Journal of Marine Engineering and Technology or the Journal of Operational Oceanography.   Please note that all submissions are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor, and, if found suitable for further consideration, peer reviewed by independent, anonymous expert referees.

Authors attending the conference are also invited to the IMarEST’s exhibition booth for more information and advice about the publishing opportunities available with the IMarEST.
