You have before you the recent issue of the internationally double-blind peer-reviewed scientific journal Transactions on Maritime Science. It is published by the Faculty of Maritime Studies of the University of Split. From this issue onwards, the journal can boast an updated website. The journal has been entirely integrated in the Open Journal System, which enables a simpler application of the papers, as well as a simpler monitoring process of the paper publication. The present issue features as many as ten papers, written by twenty-six scholars. Authors from Australia and Sweden have contributed with their respective papers for the first time. Due to a large number of papers, we have incorporated a smaller number of texts in the “Contribution” section.
