Manufacturing is undergoing major transformation due to the unforeseen challenges arising from the current trend of miniaturization, the emergence of new materials and the growing interaction between biologists and engineers to learn more from nature and living objects.
Traditionally, a “top-down” approach has been used in manufacturing. Recently, engineers and scientists have begun exploring “bottom-up” approaches for manufacturing today’s highly complex products. Further, these emerging processes are aimed to improve process efficiency and product quality.
The aim of the Journal of Manufacturing Processes (JMP) is to exchange current and future directions of manufacturing processes research, development and implementation, and to publish archival scholarly literature with a view to advancing state-of-the-art manufacturing processes and encouraging innovation for developing new and efficient processes. The journal will also publish from other research communities for rapid communication of innovative new concepts. Special-topic issues on emerging technologies and invited papers will also be published.
Papers relevant to the scope of JMP include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
• Meso/micro/nano fabrication, including imprint lithography.
• Advanced manufacturing processes, including mechanical, chemical and thermal processes.
• Welding, joining and assembly at micro and macro scales.
• Rapid prototyping, rapid manufacturing and repair, stereolithography and other 3-D fabrication techniques that can use optical projection.
• Advanced embossing, casting, forming and molding processes at all scales.
• Mono/multilayer functional coating processes.
• Continuum and subcontinuum process modeling and simulation.
• Manufacturing process monitoring, control and automation.
• Tribology and wear issues relevant to manufacturing processes.
The Journal of Manufacturing Systems (JMSY) publishes state-of-the-art fundamental and applied research in manufacturing at the systems level. Manufacturing systems are comprised of products, equipment, people, information, control and support functions for the economical and competitive development, production, delivery and total life cycle of products to satisfy market and societal needs.
Published bimonthly, the Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing provides a unique international forum for developers of intelligent manufacturing systems. By publishing quality refereed papers on the application of artificial intelligence in manufacturing, the Journal acts as a vital link between the research community and practitioners in industry.
In addition to research papers, the Journal of Intelligent Manufacturing features articles on new methodologies and developments, case studies, surveys, and tutorials on topics related to product design and manufacturing. Periodically special issues on topics of interest to the readership are published.

The Journal of Microelectromechanical systems (JMEMS) is published under the joint sponsorship of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers IEEE and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers ASME. Three societies of IEEE, Electron Devices, Industrial Electronics, and Robotics and Automation are direct sponsors of JMEMS and members of these societies may subscribe to the journal at favorable rates. The first issue of IEEE/JMEMS appeared in March, 1992 and the journal was published quarterly from 1992 to 2002 when it changed to a bimonthly format. From 1992 to 1997, the JMEMS Editor-in-Chief was Dr. William Trimmer; since 1997 Professor Richard S. Muller has held this position. The JMEMS Editorial Board plays a key role in assuring the archival quality of published papers. One of the Editorial Board members is responsible for the review process of each paper and that Editor is identified in a footnote on the first page of each accepted paper. Those members of the Editorial Board, who are designated as Senior Editor, are sometimes assigned the responsibilities of Editor-in-Chief for selected submitted papers to JMEMS.
The journal aims to publish papers at the forefront of nanoscale science and technology and especially those of an interdisciplinary nature. Here, nanotechnology is taken to include the ability to individually address, control, and modify structures, materials and devices with nanometre precision, and the synthesis of such structures into systems of micro- and macroscopic dimensions such as MEMS based devices. It encompasses the understanding of the fundamental physics, chemistry, biology and technology of nanometre-scale objects and how such objects can be used in the areas of computation, sensors, nanostructured materials and nano-biotechnology.
To be publishable in this journal, papers must meet the highest scientific quality standards, contain significant and original new science, and should make substantial advances within a particular area of nanoscale science and technology. A paper on synthesis should contain a significant innovation either in methodology, materials or demonstrated application.
Towards ensuring high editorial standards, every article submission is preliminarily assessed by the editors of the journal before being sent to independent referees. Articles can be rejected without refereeing after this initial assessment by the editors. Due to the high volume of papers that we receive, we regret that we are unable to provide feedback on individual articles. Authors appealing against the decision will have to demonstrate to the Editorial Board of the journal at email@example.com that their paper contains significant new science of high quality and interest.

The “Journal of Manufacturing Technology Research” (JMTR) is an international journal that presents the latest original and high-quality articles with a special emphasis on the research and development in recent advances in machining technology, precision manufacture, biomanufacturing, micro/nanomanufacture, and ecological manufacturing. JMTR fosters information exchange and discussion on all aspects of materials science and engineering, manufacturing processes, and manufacturing technology for modern industry.
JMTR focuses on all materials, metals, plastics, ceramics, composites, and bio and nano materials, as well as all manufacturing processes, including machining (traditional and non-traditional processes), abrasive machining, metal casting, powder metallurgy, bulk deformation, sheet metal forming, joining, plastics/composites processing, ceramic processing, thin and thick coatings, rapid prototyping, hybrid processes (thermal, plasma, chemical and electrical energy assisted methods), micromanufacturing processes (micromachining, microforming, hot embossing and patterning), and biomedical manufacturing.
The Journal covers the full range of advanced manufacturing engineering such as robotics and automation, computer-based manufacturing technologies: CNC, CAD, CAM, FMS, CIM, network technologies, concurrent engineering, production planning, scheduling, and control.
