Professor AbuBakr Bahaj from the University of Southampton has been appointed as Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Marine Energy, a new journal devoted to publishing research and case studies relevant to all forms of marine and ocean energy.

The journal, which is produced by Elsevier, targets topics such as fluid mechanics, design, environmental assessment, regulations, policy, economics, monitoring, planning evaluation, legislation and legal aspects related to sustainable exploitation of the ocean resources.

Professor Bahaj, who is Professor of Sustainable Energy and Head of the University's Energy and Climate Change Division, says: "The launch of International Journal of Marine Energy demonstrates what an exciting time this is for marine and ocean energy research. Over the past few years, there has been a growing desire within the community to boost research output and development, which has resulted in the need for a specific forum for our pioneering research."

"As a market leader in publishing research journals, Elsevier is committed to ensuring scientific communities have access to appropriate outlets for their papers," adds Bethan Keall, Publishing Director at Elsevier. "We are delighted to support this growing research field with the launch of International Journal of Marine Energy."

The first volume of the journal has been published and is now available for free on ScienceDirect.
