Editorial Policies

Focus and Scope

  • Engineering, Technology and Applied Science Research (ETASR) is an open access, peer-reviewed, wide scope international journal comprising various diverse aspects of science application, technology and engineering.

  • The main aim of ETASR is to provide fast publication to scientists, researchers and engineers from both academia and industry, that wish to communicate recent developments and applications in their field.

  • ETASR is published bimonthly and final decision about each submission will be taken within 4 weeks.

  • ETASR publishes mainly technical papers that should contain new theoretical and/or test results. ETASR will also consider for publication review articles, tutorials perspectives and correspondence concerning views and information about papers published in previous issues.

  • ETASR publishes original papers in various fields of Applied Science, Technology and Engineering that cover, but are not limited to, the following areas: Electrical Engineering, Power Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Automation and Control, Measurement and Metrology, Signal Processing,  Telecommunications, Civil Engineering, Chemical Engineering,  Materials Science, Computer Engineering, Information Technology and Informatics, Data Engineering and Software Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics.

  • ETASR is oriented towards publishing articles that communicate advances, interesting implementations and parts of on-going research in fields of interest.

  • In addition, ETASR offers a medium to authors for fast publishing individual parts of their work that are used as basis for diverse further research (e.g. a new software ,a modification or an original measuring apparatus/technique),  specific aspects of their research that are important but not closely linked with the rest of the work (e.g. a study for the economical aspect of a technical implementation) and certain parts of their work that can be later used as citations, allowing authors to comply with page limits set by other journals.

  • A standard research article published in ETASR consists of six pages but no page limit is set.  Further, colour figures and pictures are accepted providing that they are of good quality.

  • An additional aim for ETASR is to offer a medium to authors for publishing and permanent referring papers that have been presented at international conferences that do not publish their proceedings, providing that the author still owns the copyrights of his paper.

  • Further, unlike most journals, ETASR accepts papers that describe negative findings and research failures, since it feels that publishing negative results is valuable and saves considerable time and effort for other scientists around the world.

  • Finally, ETASR publishes papers from diverse fields of engineering, technology and science application and has a rather diverse oriented Editorial Board in an attempt to strengthen the collaboration of scientists and researchers of different backgrounds, which can prove valuable in their specific areas and in promoting research in general.

Peer Review Process

All submitted papers will be pre-screened by the Editor to determine suitability for further review (e.g. correct format,  area of interest). Papers deemed suitable will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. In case of delay on behalf of a viewer, the reviewer may be substituted by another. In case of excessive delay, the paper will be reviewed by members of the Editorial Board. Submitted articles cannot have been previously published, nor be forthcoming in an archival journal or book.

 

Publication Frequency

The journal is published bimonthly and a decision about each submitted paper  will be reached within  4 weeks from submission. Accepted papers will be published as soon as possible (possibly in the following issue).

 

Open Access Policy

ETASR provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

ETASR is an open access journal which means that all content is freely available without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher, providing that they acknowledge its initial publication in this journal.

Plagiarism

If similarities with already published material are detected, then regarding on the extent of similarities, the editor may reject the paper or contact the author and ask for an explanation/revision (e.g. in the case of suspected self-plagiarism).

We are aware that using plagiarism detection softwares may result to unjust accusations and therefore our team (editor and editorial board members) will consider all data in order to determine if the paper under examination bears new scientific data that deserve to be published.

On the other hand, if it is decided that the author deliberate plagiarized a paper this may even cause the banning of all co-authors from our journal for a certain period or even permanently. In such a casse, the authors will be contacted and an explanation will be asked.
