  • Title may be changed only if recommended by reviewers.

Since the reviewers of each paper are selected based on these information, changes of title or authors list are not allowed. If you need to change those information for certain unavoidable reasons, please submit a letter to Editorial board of the Journal of JSCE, Coastal Engineering, before the submission deadline of the full paper. The letter must have signatures of all authors and need to clearly describe the reason why the changes are needed.
