The TransNav, The International Journal on Marine Navigation and Safety of Sea Transportation is addressed to scientists and professionals in order to share their experience, expert knowledge and research results, concerning all aspects of navigation and sea transportation.
The Journal is published four times a year and contains original papers contributing to the science of broadly defined navigation: from the highly technical to the descriptive and historical, over land through the sea, air and space, including those presented at the TransNav conferences, to promote young researchers, new field of maritime sciences and technologies.
The focus of TransNav is high-quality, scholarly research that addresses development, application and implications, in the field of maritime education, maritime safety management, maritime policy sciences, maritime industries, marine environment and energy technology. Subjects of papers include electronics, astronomy, mathematics, cartography, command and control, psychology, operational research, risk analysis, theoretical physics, operation in hostile environments, instrumentation, ergonomics, financial planning and law. Also of interest are logistics, transport and mobility. The Journal provides a forum for transportation researchers, engineers, navigators, ergonomists, and policy-makers with an interest in maritime researches.
From contemporary issues to the scientific, technological, political, economic, cultural and social aspects of maritime shipping, transportation and navigation, the TransNav publishes innovative, interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research on marine navigation subjects and is set to become the leading international scholarly journal specialising in debate and discussion on maritime subjects. The TransNav is especially concerned to set maritime studies in a broad international and comparative context.
