We are thrilled to announce the launch of Engineering Reports, a new Open Access journal dedicated to all aspects of engineering and computer science.
We undoubtedly live in one of the fastest evolving times, with scientific and technological advances permeating our daily lives at a relentless “race-for-space” -like pace. The diversity, breadth, and implications of this new technological revolution are unprecedented. Some refer to this era as the dawn of the Fourth Industrial Revolution or the Second Machine Age; a time of changes and disruptions characterized by pioneering digital technologies that tightly connect physical, digital, and biological worlds.
As in previous revolutions, engineers undisputedly play a crucial role in the development of technologies to address these pervasive challenges that are vertiginously rapid, broad, and complex. The engineers of today are asked to work and interact in a global and multidisciplinary environment, and provide rapid solutions for a variety of problems, which, as reported by the National Academy of Engineering, range from climate change to sustainable housing, from virtual reality to advanced artificial intelligence, from cybersecurity to terrorism, from advanced health and biomedical informatics to personalized medicine, and from smart maintaining infrastructure to autonomous things.
The challenges we face as a society are global in scale and have an impact on a social, political, and economic level. Public engagement in science and engineering is more vital than ever before, to shape this technological revolution and collectively pave the way for a more prosperous and fairer world.
In this context, Engineering Reports aims to help the research community face today’s fascinating and multifaceted challenges by offering a fast route to publication and the ability to share research with the widest possible audience of engineers, scientists, professionals, and other interested people across the globe.
As an open-access journal devoted to the broad scope of engineering and computer science, Engineering Reports provides a unified outlet for rigorously peer-reviewed and well-conducted scientific research to appeal to anyone working in any area of engineering in academia, industry, or government, including engineers, scientists, consultants, policymakers, government officials, economists, and corporate organizations.
Engineering Reports is managed by a full-time Editor-in-Chief at Wiley and supported by a topically and geographically diverse editorial board of preeminent thought leaders. See the full list of Editors here.
We look forward to receiving your relevant contributions for publication.
