Prospective authors interested in submitting a paper for consideration to the Journal of Sailing Technology shall visit the SNAME website. There you will find detailed instructions as well as the paper template.

The Journal of Sailing Technology is an online peer-reviewed journal, whose objective is to provide a medium for the publication of research achievements and engineering practices inherent to all aspects of sailing technology. 

The Journal provides an OPEN ACCESS exchange platform for academics, researchers, students, designers, manufacturers, industry professionals and sailors alike, as well as the general public with an interest in sailing technology.

The Journal is funded by SNAME and it is free for both authors and readers. 

The Editorial Board welcomes submissions in three formats.
1. Full research papers, with unlimited word count, peer-reviewed within 8 weeks.
2. Short research papers, under 3000 words, peer-reviewed within 4 weeks. This is particularly suitable for high-quality short research communications and high-quality student projects.
3. Critical reviews, with unlimited word count, peer-reviewed within 8 weeks.

The scope of the Journal includes both fundamental and applied research based on analytical, numerical, and experimental studies. Topics include, but are not limited to the following:
Wind-Assisted Ship Propulsion
Yacht Design
Rig Concepts
Hull and appendages 
Performance Prediction
Race Modelling
Weather Routing
Handicap Systems

Every year the Editorial Board recommends SNAME for: 
The Best Paper Award, awarded to the author(s) of the most outstanding paper published in JST; 
The Best Student Paper Award, awarded to the student author(s) of the most eminent paper published in JST between those whose lead author is undertaking higher education studies. 

Papers are nominated by the reviewers. All nominated papers published in a calendar year are considered for the awards by an Award Committee (made of the Editor-in-Chief, Deputy Editors and Associate Editors), provided a minimum of 10 papers are published for the Best Paper Award, and a minimum of 6 eligible papers are published for the Best Student Paper Award. Should a paper with a lead author undertaking higher education studies be awarded the Best Paper Award, it will no longer be eligible for the Best Student Paper Award.
