ScienceOpen and the IET (The Institution of Engineering and Technology) are pleased to launch two featured collections: ‘AI & Robotics’ and ‘Transport Engineering and Technology’ which integrate selected Open Access articles from IET’s peer-reviewed international journals in the ScienceOpen research discovery environment.
With 43 research and letters journals, including over a dozen of gold open access journals, and leading book in energy engineering, the IET is a major publisher in the disciplines of applied science and technology. The IET’s importance for scientific research in these fields is reflected in the diversity of their content in the new Collections on ScienceOpen:
- ‘AI & Robotics’ comprises articles from the IET’s journals covering this field, including Cognitive Computation and Systems; IET Cyber-Systems and Robotics; CAAI Transactions on Intelligence Technology; IET Smart Cities; IET Quantum Communication; IET Computer Vision; IET Control Theory & Applications; and IET Software. Moreover, the Collection features the interdisciplinary Journal of Engineering and IET Cyber-Physical Systems: Theory & Applications, and journals that cover a research field with a strong AI underpinning, such as IET Smart Grid.
- The ‘Transport Engineering and Technology’ Collection highlights publications from the IET Intelligent Transport Systems and IET Electrical Systems in Transportation, and complements them with selected articles from The Journal of Engineering;IET Smart Cities;andIET Cyber-Systems and Robotics.
The Collections promote the content of these journals within the larger context of over 60 million scientific article records on the ScienceOpen platform. ScienceOpen’s customized search engine increases the discoverability of IET publications thanks to the variety of dynamic sorting and filtering tools. On top of being a research discovery hub, ScienceOpen also creates a forum for researcher engagement. Interactive features such as community curation, article reviews, and recommendations open networking opportunities and accelerate a scholarly exchange of ideas.
ScienceOpen CEO, Stephanie Dawson, finds “The new IET collections on artificial intelligence and transport technology provide a big boost to the engineering content on the ScienceOpen platform and will support users in finding high quality research on these important topics. We are looking forward to this expansion of our successful cooperation with the IET.”
Vincent Cassidy, Director of Academic Markets said, “We’re delighted to announce the launch of these two collections. In these rapidly moving fields, providing access to the latest research as soon as it is available is essential to keep driving forward scientific developments that will have a real impact on societal outcomes. We’re pleased that researchers and anyone interested in in AI, robotics, transport and associated technologies will be able to see the great work that is being conducted in these areas.”
The new ScienceOpen Collections by the IET features recent scientific advances and increase their accessibility for the global audience with the overarching aim of informing next generations of engineers in the dynamically changing fields of artificial intelligence and of transport.
