ScienceOpen and the IET (The Institution of Engineering and Technology) are pleased to announce a partnership that integrates selected Open Access articles from IET’s power and energy journals in the ScienceOpen research discovery environment in the form of a featured collection.
With nearly 40 research and letters journals, including 12 gold open access journals, and leading books in energy engineering, the IET is a major publisher in the disciplines of engineering and technology. IET’s importance for scientific research in these fields is reflected in the diversity of its content in the ‘Power Engineering’ collection on ScienceOpen. This new collection features Open Access articles from IET journals IET Renewable Power Generation, IET Generation, Transmission & Distribution, IET Electric Power Applications, IET Power Electronics, High Voltage, IET Smart Grid, and IET Energy Systems Integration. ‘Power Engineering’ also integrates articles published in IET’s two multi-disciplinary journals: The Journal of Engineering and IET Cyber-physical Systems: Theory and Applications.
The ‘Power Engineering’ featured Collection promotes the content of these journals within the larger context of over 50 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. Interactive features such as community curation, article reviews, and recommendations create a forum for researcher engagement.
ScienceOpen CEO, Stephanie Dawson, believes “Engineering is necessarily interdisciplinary, reaches far beyond academic institutions and is therefore open to new forms of discovery. We are excited to work with the IET on this freely accessible collection of high quality, open access articles on “Power Engineering” to provide essential knowledge to engineers solving real world problems across the globe.”
Vincent Cassidy, Director of Academic Markets said “We constantly strive to publish the best and latest research in energy science and want to ensure that our authors’ work is accessible to as wide an audience as possible. We are thrilled that the partnership with ScienceOpen will enable us to do this, and look forward to working with them.”
This partnership between ScienceOpen and the IET contextualizes power engineering research within the broader research environment with the aim of enhancing the visibility and impact of scientific research in this field.
