PolyU excels in shipping and maritime research
Researchers from PolyU’s Department of Logistics and Maritime Studies have gained recognition for their outstanding achievements in shipping and maritime research.
According to Thomson Reuters’ ISI Web of Science, PolyU tops the list of the world’s leading shipping schools for publishing shipping-related articles between 2017 and 2019. The report shows that a total of 561 shipping-related articles were published in the transportation category during that period, among which 56 papers were produced by PolyU.
The University has also been ranked first for both the number of research papers published in the maritime transportation field and their weighted score in a study of Chinese universities. The study, published in 2019 by open access publisher Hindawi, analysed articles published in 65 “Social Sciences Citation Index” and “Sciences Citation Index” maritime and transportation journals between 2000 and 2015. The articles were submitted by 50 authors from or affiliated with institutions in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore. Among these 50 authors, Professor Edwin Cheng, Dean of the Faculty of Business, was ranked second in terms of the number of papers published.
In addition to conducting impactful shipping and maritime research, PolyU is also the sole provider of comprehensive maritime education at the tertiary level in Hong Kong.
