Partnership between IET and the Chinese Academy of Sciences to provide greater global access to The Journal of Engineering


Scope e-Knowledge Center, August 5, 2017—The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have announced a new partnership to promote the IET's open access journal, The Journal of Engineering.

As a result of this new partnership, researchers across the globe will now have greater access to cutting-edge engineering intelligence and research. 

The Journal of Engineering was successfully chosen to be indexed on the CAS Open Access platform, GoOA, following a stringent selection process. The Journal of Engineering's emphasis on high-quality, thorough peer-review, ensures the publishing of scientifically sound research across a broad spectrum of engineering fields including: electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, energy engineering, civil engineering, micro- and nanotechnology, computing and software, biomedical engineering and materials engineering. 

The Journal of Engineering was also recently selected for the Clarivate Analytics Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). 

About The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) (

The IET is one of the world’s largest engineering institutions with over 168,000 members in 150 countries. It is also the most multidisciplinary – to reflect the increasingly diverse nature of engineering in the 21st century.  The IET is working to engineer a better world by inspiring, informing and influencing our members, engineers and technicians, and all those who are touched by, or touch, the work of engineers.  Our mission is to inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community. As a trusted source of Essential Engineering Intelligence ®, the IET provides a range of world-renowned publications and information services.

About the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) (

The Chinese Academy of Sciences is the linchpin of Chinas drive to explore and harness high technology and the natural sciences for the benefit of China and the world. Comprising a comprehensive research and development network, a merit-based learned society and a system of higher education, CAS brings together scientists and engineers from China and around the world to address both theoretical and applied problems using world-class scientific and management approaches. Since its founding, CAS has fulfilled multiple roles  as a national team and a locomotive driving national technological innovation, a pioneer in supporting nationwide S&T development, a think tank delivering S&T advice and a community for training young S&T talent.
