The Faculty of Maritime Studies of the University of Rijeka has been issuing the Journal of Maritime Studies since 1999. The original edition of this Journal was published in 1964 under the title „Selected Papers of the Faculty of Maritime Studies“.

The „Scientific Journal of Maritime Research“ represents a multidisciplinary scientific journal publishing scientific and research papers dealing with different fields of maritime affairs (biotechnology, shipping industry, ecology, economics, electrical engineering and computer science, linguistics, logistics, navigation, law, history, sociology, mechanical engineering, technics, technology, traffic and transport technology, as well as other fields of this very complex framework of maritime affairs). The authors of the papers published are scientists, research workers and experts in the wide variety of fields of maritime affairs coming not only from Croatia but from the whole maritime world as well. All the papers are published in Croatian or English, while the summaries are bilingual.

Since 2006 the Journal has been published twice a year (in June and December). In addition to the Editorial Board, the members of which are professors of the Faculty of Maritime Studies of the University of Rijeka, the Journal has an International Scientific Advisory Board, with distinguished scientists from abroad as members.

The Journal is financially supported by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of the Republic of Croatia and by the Foundation of the University of Rijeka (depends on approval).

The unabridged paper texts of the journal are available on request at the e-mail address:
