IET launches new open access Engineering Biology Journal

Richard Kitney: "Synthetic biology is already revolutionising a number of fields."

The new online-only journal is focused on the application of engineering science and practice to the design of biological devices and systems for a wide range of fields and applications including biosensors, medical and plant biology. Covering the key aspects of systematic design using the engineering principles of modularity, standardisation and characterisation, Engineering Biology will include themes of model based design and computational tools; gene circuit automation tools; genome engineering; DNA assembly techniques; and the interface between electronics and biology.

Editor-in-chief and Founding Editor Professor Richard Kitney said: “As a young and interdisciplinary field of research, synthetic biology is already revolutionising a number of fields, using tools and concepts from physics, engineering and computer science to build new biological systems. The editorial board and I look forward to sharing Engineering Biology with the international engineering community to further research in this ground-breaking field.”

Vincent Cassidy, Head of Academic Markets at the IET said: “The IET has always been at the forefront of sharing engineering intelligence and Engineering Biology will showcase cutting-edge research in this growing area of engineering. As part of the IET Open programme, Engineering Biology will be free to view IET’s Digital Library and IEEE XPlore and we’re pleased to announce that the IET will be waiving all Article Processing Charges (APCs) for articles submitted to Engineering Biology in 2017 to further advance the sharing of knowledge in this field.”

Engineering Biology, which will publish its first issue in May 2017, will become the latest addition to the IET Open portfolio of gold, fully open access journals. The online-only journal joins High Voltage and IET Cyber-Physical Systems: Theory & Applications, which launched in 2016 as well as the IET mega journal, The Journal of Engineering (JOE) and Healthcare Technology Letters, which recently became a fully open access journal.

Engineering Biology will be available on the IET’s Digital Library and IEEE XPlore with four issues per year. The Editors are inviting submissions from prospective authors for forthcoming issues.
