Elsevier Launches New Open Access Journal - "Case Studies In Engineering Failure Analysis"

OXFORD,England, November 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services announces the launch of a new, international, open access journal, Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis.

Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis provides a forum for the rapid publication of short, structured case studies in engineering failure analysis and will form an essential compendium for practitioners in this field. The scope of the journal will include case studies of component failures in mechanical, civil, aerospace, mining, oil and gas, medical, electrical, transportation, power generation, process and forensic engineering, although failure of engineering components in other disciplines will also be considered.

The Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Richard Clegg, said of the launch, "Like medical practitioners, most failure analysts use a combination of a deep understanding of science and knowledge of past experience to provide an optimal solution to their challenges. We hope to develop the journal into an indispensible body of experience in engineering failures, which will assist experienced and novice engineering failure analysts to more quickly come to an understanding of the causes of the failures which they are studying."

Dr. George Pantazopoulos from ELKEME Hellenic Research Centre for Metals S.A., Athens, Greece, first author of the first paper submitted and accepted for publication in the journal, said, "The journal focuses on real failure analysis case studies in engineering applications across the industry and as an open access journal it provides a channel for better exchange of failure analysis experience among engineers from all industrial sectors. Rapid publication allows faster sharing of such experience for improved future practice."     

Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis is the first title in a series of open access journals called 'Case Studies in …' to be launched by Elsevier within the field of engineering. Journals in the series will all follow the article based publishing model which allows for immediate publication of  final version of a paper without waiting for other articles to be ready to compile a full issue.

The first articles of Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis are available to view online on ScienceDirect.
