Aims and scopes
Journal is devoted to multidisciplinary researches in the fields of theoretical and experimental naval architecture and oceanology as well as to challenging problems in shipping, shipbuilding, offshore and related industries worldwide. The aim of the journal is to integrate interests in shipbuilding, ocean engineering, sea and ocean shipping, inland navigation and intermodal transportation as well as environmental issues, overall safety, wind, marine and hydrokinetic renewable energy production and sustainable transportation development at seas and oceans. The journal focuses on hydrodynamics, structures, reliability, materials, construction, design, optimization, production engineering, building and organization of building, project management, repair and maintenance planning, information systems in shipyards, quality assurance as well as outfitting, powering, power plants and equipment onboard.
About journal BRODOGRADNJA(SHIPBUILDING)
Journal BRODOGRADNJA(SHIPBUILDING) was launched in 1950 as an expression of growing enthusiasm and ambition for promotion of the shipping and shipbuilding tradition of Croatia.
Its primary focus was on research and development serving the fast developing shipbuilding industry.
The permanently growing shipbuilding industry took over the publishing of BRODOGRADNJA in 1981.
In 1982 BRODOGRADNJA became a bilingual international journal, i.e. contributions were written either in Croatian or English.
The Croatian shipbuilding research institute ─ Brodarski Institute became the publisher of BRODOGRADNJA in 1992.
During this successful period of growth, BRODOGRADNJA covered the following regularly scheduled sections: peer reviewed scientific and professional papers, current topics and news from the shipbuilding industry, reviews, and worldwide maritime news.
Since the beginning of the year 2014 BRODOGRADNJA has been edited and published by the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture of the University of Zagreb.
BRODOGRADNJA is intended to be an international scientific peer reviewed open-access journal with focus on the Theory and Practice of Naval Architecture, Marine Engineering and Ocean Engineering serving the Shipbuilding, Shipping and Offshore Industry and related topics.
BRODOGRADNJA(SHIPBUILDING) has been adopted the GUIDE FOR THE PREPARATION OF SCIENTIFIC PAPERS FOR PUBLICATIONS PGI-83/WE/10, Second Edition, Paris 1983, United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), General InformationProgamme and UNISIST.
BRODOGRADNJA(SHIPBUILDING) has been an open access journal from its early beginnings.
Papers are available free of charge to everyone in accordance with the Budapest Open Access Initiative from 2002 and Croatian declaration on open access to scientific information from the year 2012.
Open and fully free access is particularly supported after the inclusion of BRODOGRADNJA into the Central Portal of Croatian Scientific Journals called Hrčak (Hamster) in 2005 and following the launching of the Web edition of BRODOGRADNJA in 2007.
