ABSTRACT: This study examined the content analysis of the articles published in International Journal on Marine Navigation and Safety of Sea Transportation (TransNav). A content analysis was conducted for a 6-year period from 2007 to 2012. The journal published 6 volumes, 24 issues and 401 articles since 2007. The articles were submitted by 637 authors from 49 different countries. A total of 401 research papers were analyzed in the sense of the author?s score, country and institution ranks of articles published in the TransNav Journal. In this study, no attempt was made to distinguish between departments, research centers, and agencies within an institution. The analyses were found that the authors from Poland made the most contribution to the journal. This shows that the journal should be more attractive for authors from other countries to enhance sending their scientific studies. This study also found that the journal mostly attends safety and security in sea transportation. Algorithms and methods are also widely included in the journal as a topic chapter.
