The National Maritime Foundation (NMF) strives to to be the foremost resource centre for the development and advocacy of strategies for the promotion and protection of India’s maritime interests. In doing so it seeks to provide constructive inputs for policy-formulation and promoting awareness and generating public debate on the importance of the maritime dimension of India. In this endeavour, the NMF, welcomes experts, scholars and students to forward their views/ writings on issues relevant to the maritime domain, particularly those that are germane to policy-formulation, but also those that seek to provide lay-readers with baseline-information and analyses concerning the maritime domain.
The NMF has two broad genres of publishing research-content. The first is the content that is uploaded on its website (www.maritimeindia.org). The second is the content that is published in its journals; the Foundation’s flagship journal, “Maritime Affairs” published by Taylor and Francis, and, a collection of the year’s online content, titled “Maritime Perspectives”.
Style-formatting and footnote-citations for both must be as per the NMF’s House-Style Manual, which itself is based upon the Chicago Manual of Style. A modest honorarium will be paid by the NMF to the contributors.

Prescribed Formats for Web Publications
We accept original articles containing analytical assessments relevant to the maritime domain. We are happy to publish well-articulated and rigorously-researched articles but not mere opinions. The minimum word-length that we expect is 1,500 words. While we have a flexible policy in respect of the maximum word-length permissible, we require that articles longer than 3,000 words be split into two or more parts, with suitable text appearing in the first part to indicate that this will be a segmented piece, and, in subsequent parts to introduce the specific part while providing a minimally-descriptive link to the preceding part(s).
Style-formatting and footnote-citations must be as per the NMF’s House-Style Manual, which itself is based upon the Chicago Manual of Style.

Style-formatting and footnote-citations for both must be as per the NMF’s House-Style Manual, which itself is based upon the Chicago Manual of Style.
