SAGE Open Engineering marked Open Access Week with this Exclusive Podcast: Listen Here!

Defining engineering it in its widest possible terms, SAGE Open Engineering will be the first broad-spectrum Open Access journal providing a vehicle for the publication of high quality research in all areas of engineering.

Papers will be subjected to rigorous peer review but will be selected solely on the basis of whether the research is sound and deserves publication, not on whether it fits a narrow focus within engineering, or is of interest to a specific readership only.

The inclusive nature of the journal will lend itself to papers of both a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary nature but all engineering research will be considered provided authors can demonstrate that their work contributes to the academic narrative in some way.

Areas covered will be:

  • Interdisciplinary Engineering
  • Aeronautical Engineering
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Civil Engineering
  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Materials Science
  • Mechanical Engineering
