Underwater Technology

CrossRef Online Open AccessISSN 1756 0543 (Print)
ISSN 1756 0551 (Online)


The SUT's interests and the scope of the journal are interdisciplinary, covering technological aspects and applications of topics including: diving technology and physiology, environmental forces, geology/geotechnics, marine pollution, marine renewable energies, marine resources, oceanography, salvage and decommissioning, subsea systems, underwater acoustics, underwater robotics, underwater science and underwater vehicle technologies.


The journal carries personal views, technical papers, technical briefings and book reviews. We invite such news and articles covering all aspects and applications of underwater technology. Original papers on new technology, its development and applications, or covering new applications for existing technology, are particularly welcome. All full technical papers submitted for publication are peer reviewed through the Editorial Advisory Board.

Submissions should adhere to the journal’s style and layout as outlined in the Guidelines for Authors. For more information, contact Michaelagh Broadbent, Assistant Editor, at michaelagh.broadbent@sut.org.

While Underwater Technology is not ISI rated, SUT will not be charging authors for submissions.
