“Open access represents broadening of opportunities. Imagine all companies, even the smallest start-up in an underdeveloped country, having access to the latest science and engineering advancements. What we have is a significant lowering of the barrier for world development through Engineering.”
Editor-in-Chief of InfoMat
“Open access makes scientific research more open, transparent and accessible for researchers and the general public alike and foster sharing and collaboration to facilitate the innovation of engineering science and technology and industrial reform.”
IBM Research, Editor in Chief of Applied AI Letters
“Engineers are problem solvers. By removing the barriers to access, and enabling a diverse readership, we can both enable new communities to understand the pressing problems of the day.
Learning about new approaches from different disciplines which have the potential to revolutionise their approaches.”
Director of Discipline in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Newcastle University.
Editor-in-Chief of IET Power Electronics
“Open access is the only platform that allows researchers to publish quickly and fast their findings to anyone across the globe.
There are no barriers and therefore published work will have greater visibility.
Accessing free knowledge holds the key in engineering to produce efficient, cost-effective and sustainable solutions.”
Professor in Complex Systems at University of Surrey.
Section Editor for Computing and Software in the Journal of Engineering
“Science and engineering are social activities and innovation is optimised if information is freely available to all.
Open access will help to build an inclusive global community of engineers and help us all to address the major challenges to the survival of both the biosphere and the human communities that are embedded within it.”
