Engineering, Technology & Applied Science Research (ETASR) is an international wide scope, peer-reviewed open access journal for the publication of original papers concerned with diverse aspects of science application, technology and engineering.
ETASR is a DIY attempt from active researchers to have their own journal. ETASR publishes a small number of papers per issue, performs thorough review and copyediting, always aiming to the best possible result for authors and readers. No bulk publication, no numerous journals/papers, no conferences, no money making scheme. ETASR operates largely on a volunteer base and fees are used to cover expenses. ETASR is a publisher member of DOAJ and was one of the few OA journals that correctly identified and rejected a bogus paper sent to 304 OA journals as a part of a sting operation initiated by Science magazine in late 2013.
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 publishes mainly technical papers that should contain new theoretical and/or test results. The journal will also consider for publication review articles, tutorials, communications, 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, color figures and pictures are accepted providing that they are of good quality.
An added aim for ETASR is to offer a medium to authors for publishing and permanent referring papers that have been presented at 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.
