The Case Studies series of journals are a new format of publication covering all aspects of engineering. They aim to connect researchers and practitioners working in a variety of subject areas by publishing short and accessible technical articles. They provide immediate, free and permanent access to technical research on ScienceDirect for the community of practicing engineers and researchers to read, download and learn from. Authors are provided detailed individual feedback on how many times their paper has been read and which countries the readership comes from. These Case Studies journals aim for a turnaround time from submission to publication of no more than three months.
Journals in the series will all follow the article based publishing model, allowing for immediate publication of the finalized paper without waiting for other articles to be ready to compile a full issue.
Case Studies Journals:
Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis
Case Studies in Thermal Engineering
Case Studies in Construction Materials
