Troze is the on-line journal of the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. A refereed journal, new volumes are issued roughly quarterly.

The articles cover two themes:

  • General maritime matters
  • The stories of Cornwall's maritime past

The title of the journal uses a traditional Cornish word:
: the sound made by water about the bows of a boat in motion (from R. Morton Nance, A Glossary of Cornish Sea Words)
