ME Staff Appointed to Editorships in Known SCI Journals

Both starting from this August, Dr XJ Jing is appointed to the Editorial Board as a Technical Editor of IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics and the Editorial Board Member of Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing. Dr Jing has been working in the area of control, signal processing, nonlinear systems, nonlinear dynamics, vibration control/isolation, robotics and automation etc.

The IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics is a well-known journal in the literature related to mechatronics. It has a high impact factor 3.425 (2014 JCR Science Edition) and ranks at 3/130 in mechanical engineering, 1/40 in manufacturing engineering, 3/58 in automation & control systems and 17/249 in EEE. The IEEE/ASME TRANSACTIONS ON MECHATRONICS is a bimonthly periodical that began as a quarterly in 1996 as a joint publication of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society, IEEE Robotics and Automation Society, IEEE Lasers and Electro-Optics Society, ASME Dynamic Systems and Control Division, and ASME Design Engineering Division. The aim of the present TRANSACTIONS is to establish a high-quality archival journal which presents the state of the art, recent advances and practical applications of mechatronics. Its scope encompasses all practical aspects of the theory and methods of mechatronics, the synergetic integration of mechanical engineering with electronic and intelligent computer control in the design and manufacture of industrial products and processes.

The Mechanical Systems and Signal Processing (MSSP) is also a well-known and flag-ship journal in its related area with a high impact factor 2.256 (2014 JCR Science Edition) and ranks at 14/130 in mechanical engineering. The journal has the highest SNIP (3.193) of 2014 among Signal Processing and Control journals. It is an interdisciplinary journal in Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering with the purpose of reporting scientific advancements of the highest quality arising from new techniques in sensing, instrumentation, signal processing, modelling and control of dynamic systems. MSSP papers are expected to make a demonstrable original contribution to engineering knowledge, which should be significant in terms of advancement over established methods. Especially sought are papers that include both theoretical and experimental aspects, or that include experimental material of high relevance to practical applications. MSSP is a leader in its field and research areas covered include: 1. Actuation, Sensing and Control; 2. Measurement & Signal Processing; 3. Nonlinearity; 4. Rotating Machines, Machinery Diagnostics & SHM ; 5. Uncertainty; 6. Vibrations, Modal Analysis &Structures.
