Engineering research is essential to developing theory and practice in a variety of fields, including artificial intelligence, fire safety, transportation, and construction. For these fields to reach their true potential, stakeholders from academia, industry, and policy need access to robust, rigorous research.
As a pioneer in open science, F1000Research provides a high-quality venue for scholars, researchers, and academics to disseminate their engineering research quickly and openly whilst also benefitting from a post-publication peer review process. Once the article is published, the research is then freely available to read, share and cite.
Our scope covers all aspects of engineering including but not limited to:
Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering
