Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

The presentation summarises the current worklines addressed by the international Open Access Working Group operating under the CESAER Task Force for Open Science (TFOS). A up-to-date snapshot is provided for the present Open Access implementation landscape, with some emphasis on the recently released 'Plan S' and where it may lead us. Emphasis is made on the need to account for the role of Open Access repositories and the Green OA route within future developments.
