2 Discipline Advantage

Sponsor’s Advantage

CSDDC is one of the leading institutes engaged in the development and overall design of ships, submersibles and marine structures. Over the past five decades, CSDDC has dedicated itself to absorb international advanced technologies with insights both into theoretical analysis and practical applications, which ensures its leading position in the industry of overall ship design within China. CSDDC has successfully accomplished a variety of national key projects and made significant contributions to the modernization of China's national defense, which earns it the title of “the cradle of Chinese naval ships”.

Now CSDDC has established a well-staffed and efficient research team covering all specialties of ship design. CSDDC is proud of its 1500 highly talented and motivated employees, over fifty percent of whom hold either a doctoral degree or a master degree. It is worth highlighting that the staff list also includes two academicians of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and dozens of well-known research scholars who have been granted the title of State Expert with Outstanding Contribution. Besides, CSDDC has one post doctoral station, two post doctoral branch stations and offers one doctor degree program and two master degree programs.

CSDDC has implemented a comprehensive quality management system covering the overall development, design and support of ships, marine systems and equipment. In addition, a National Key Laboratory of EMC, an EMC Testing Center, and a Noise and Vibration Testing Center are established as subsidiaries to CSDDC.

Over the last few years, CSDDC has made remarkable progress in the product diversification. Now it is a major supplier in the following markets: high-performance ships, special ships, marine engineering, deep diving submersibles, EMC, noise control, environmental protection, pressure containers, medical oxygen chambers, CAD, network systems and simulation technologies, etc.

Discipline Advantage

Chinese Journal of Ship Research is a notable academic journal in the field of naval architecture, shipbuilding and marine engineering in China. It publishes reviews as well as full-length papers that cover a broad spectrum of the latest technological breakthroughs, trends, concepts, and discoveries related to the marine industry, with naval architects and marine engineers being its primary target readers. At present, high quality papers are being accepted from major research institutes and colleges throughout China.

Papers are solicited on a broad array of topics relevant to naval architecture and marine engineering such as:

•   Hydrodynamics, ship motions, new hull forms and structures;

•   Propulsion and electrical system engineering;

•   Shipboard electronic equipment, optoelectronic technology and communication engineering;

•   Combat system, Integrated Platform Management System (IPMS) and other information system;

•   3-D design, numerical simulation and virtual reality;

•   Sound and vibration reduction, and other stealth technology;

•   Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC);

•   Ship reliability, maintainability and integrated logistic support; and

•   Ship procurement, and life cycle management etc.

Chinese Journal of Ship Research has gained widespread attention ever since its founding. According to the statistics data of 2009 from China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), Chinese Journal of Ship Research had 2411 institutional subscribers, some of them are from North America, Europe, Australia, Japan, and other international regions. The academic value and status of the journal are well proved by its top-end subscribers including Library of Congress of the U.S., French Department of Defense, National Diet Library of Japan, Taiwan National Defense University, Feng Chia University, the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Tsinghua University, Peking University, Zhejiang University, etc.

The journal publishes approximately 120 papers annually, nearly 50% of which represent significant successes in key projects supported by China's National Nature Sciences Foundation, National Defense Science and Technology Pre-research Foundation, and other organizations.

3 Peer Review

All papers are rigorously peer-reviewed for originality, significance, depth of treatment, interest, organization, presentation, and clarity, based on an initial screening by the Editor followed by double-blind reviewing involving two anonymous referees and an Associate Chief Editor. Only with the approval from all reviewers can the paper be finally published.

5 Included/Abstract in

CJSR has been included by several famous domestic full-text Databases such as China National Knowledge Infrastructure(CNKI), Chinese Core Journals (Selected) Database, Chinese Journal Full-text Database (CJFD), Chinese Academic Journals – CD (CAJ-CD), and Database of Chinese Scientific and Technological Periodicals.

CJSR has also been included in British Marine Technology (BMT) Abstracts, Index of Copernicus(IC), and Ulrich PD. Now, CJSR is making efforts to be abstracted/ indexed by more databases abroad.

6 Appraisal

Chinese Journal of Ship Research, with its distinctive characteristics and high academic level, serves as a core academic journal and major influence in the field of ship development and design in China. Sponsored by China Ship Development and Design Center (CSDDC), the journal elegantly incorporates the actual development of domestic naval assets and has been highly recognized by professionals in the ship research and engineering domain. Meanwhile, it actively integrates the research resources of other domestic organizations, and, therefore, represents an effective model to combine academic journals with the research results from relevant institutions across the country. Such an ingenious combination significantly increases the overall impact and academic level of the journal and promotes the academic exchange within relevant fields, which should be further explored and encouraged.

--Professor Huang Sheng, Harbin Engineering University

Chinese Journal of Ship Research provides a relatively complete view over the development of leading technologies and relevant engineering activities in the field of naval design. It covers most research subjects in the discipline of naval architecture and marine engineering and is highly recognized as a comprehensive academic journal of engineering.

---Professor Yao Xiongliang, Harbin Engineering University

Compared with other academic journals in the same category, Chinese Journal of Ship Research is blessed with remarkable advantages in terms of available resources and geographic location. I wish it will fully exploit these advantages and become a top academic journal in the marine industry both at home and abroad.

--Professor Hong Ming, Dalian University of Technology

Chinese Journal of Ship Research is a comprehensive academic journal widely acknowledged by college professors and students. Both academic and engineering subjects in the field of ship research and design are intensively explored in the published articles and papers. Over the years, the journal has made remarkable achievements in promoting domestic and international academic and technical exchange, as well as the theoretical innovation and technical progress in naval engineering and relevant areas.

--Professor Huang Yanshun, Tianjing University

Personally, I am a regular reader of Chinese Journal of Ship Research, and I am highly privileged to become one of its paper reviewers. This journal has published many high-quality papers in my research areas (ship vibration and noise, structural stealth), all of which are most intriguing and inspiring to relevant theoretical and engineering workers. I hope and believe that one day, with our joint efforts, the journal can make itself to the top within the field of naval design and engineering.

--Professor Yang Deiqing, Shanghai Jiaotong University
