Articles on all aspects of Naval Engineering, in the broadest sense, will be considered for publication in the Journal of Naval Engineering (JNE). Its readers include all Royal Navy Engineer and Warrant Officers, all MoD Technical Development Officers, all Naval Scientists, the navies of NATO, Commonwealth and other friendly countries, as well as leading Naval Defence Firms.
Articles may be targeted at any part of the readership, provided they are comprehensible to all. Authors need not be in Government Service.
Articles used to be accepted on the understanding that they will not be published elsewhere. This is now no longer the case although the more limited circulation of the JNE should allow scope for a more personal perspective from one's own experience to be included and such views are seldom acceptable in conference papers.
The JNE is intended to be UNCLASSIFIED although RESTRICTED editions remain possible. Authors should state the security classification of their proposed article and that agreement for publication has been obtained from their line management.
One hard copy of the text and a copy in MS Word on a CD should be sent to Chris Hodge and the JNE Editorial Team. Contact information can be found on the "Contact Info" page.
