The role and scope of the engineering profession are transforming rapidly. Both what engineers do, and how they do it, are experiencing profound changes due to the need to attend to global issues, expansion of the engineering disciplines beyond traditional boundaries, and the accelerating pace of technological innovations in engineering and related areas, such as computing, communication, mobile, robotics and interactive technologies. Moreover, the present decade will witness a move to the post information age, “the Intelligence Era” – a transformative change, and a disruptive era, with people living and working in digital environment, surrounded by intelligent tools, intercommunicating devices, and robotic networks, which are seamlessly integrated, and embedded into the environment. Novel forms of interaction with the environment will become widely available. Engineers will be required to perform increasingly more complex and imaginative tasks of synthesis and creativity.
Our periodical online and printed journal is a step towards responding to the above challenges by serving as a premier source on innovations and future directions of engineering; an online digital environment for rapid, global dissemination of emerging and novel inter-disciplinary ideas among researchers; and a platform for exploring the effectiveness of using abundantly visual interfaces, including multimedia elements, for enhancing the informational content of technical articles. The journal will publish articles in all categories. We insure the speedy publication of accepted articles, even before their inclusion in a complete issue of the journal, in addition to the state-of-technology benefits of electronic journals.
I look forward to a very successful and stimulating journal, and I welcome any suggestions for improving the quality and the usefulness of the journal.
Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication
The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behaviour for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.
An important role of the publisher is to support the extensive efforts of journal editors, and the often unsung volunteer work undertaken by peer reviewers in maintaining the integrity of the scholarly record. It is a tribute to scholarly practice that the system works well and problems are comparatively rare. The publisher has a supporting, investing and nurturing role in the scholarly communication process and is also ultimately responsible for ensuring that best practices are followed.
We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions.
