Focus and Scope

Nirma University Journal of Engineering and Technology serves as a means of prompt dissemination of original theoretical and applied research results of several disciplines of engineering. The papers may contain original research contributions in the form of: state of the art literature review, mathematical analysis, mathematical modelling and simulation analysis, design procedures, computer flowchart and program, practical implementation, and hardware realization. All papers published are full-length research papers and articles. The journal also publishes reviews, discussion of papers published in this journal, book reviews and invited papers. The  editorial board  with  the  help  of experts  from  across  the  academia and  industry conducts the peer review process. NUJET is six monthly. Its scope encompasses relevant topics under the broad areas of Chemical Engineering, Computer Science & Information Technology, Civil Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Instrumentation & Control Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Education, and Engineering Mathematics.

Peer Review Process

All manuscripts are subjected to double-blind peer review and are expected to meet standards of academic excellence. Submissions will be considered by Editors if not rejected right away by the Chief Editor. Identities of peer-reviewers remain anonymous to the authors.

Ethics policy

Submissions will be checked for plagiarism using proper Turnitin software. If similarity index is greater than 20% then the submission will be rejected, if it is not an extension of the work by the same authors published earlier. If it is an extension of the work by the same authors published earlier in a conference proceedings then the submission must be a substantial revision of the conference paper, containing significant novel material (at least 30% of additional material). In this case, at the submission time, the authors must indicate in the cover letter when and where the paper has been published, and explain the major differences of the submission with respect to the earlier published work. Also authors must include that published paper of own in the list of references of the newly submitted paper. A copy of the earlier publication should be provided as part of the submission.

 

Publication Frequency

Number of Issues per Year

Two issues per year (six monthly)

The Journal will have two issues per year, first in January and second is July. The papers will be published as soon as the processing of the paper is completed i.e. review process, acceptance, layout, proofreading, etc.

 

Open Access Policy

Users have the right to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles published in the Journal.

 

Preamble

Doing research and catalysing technology dissemination are now integral parts of mandatory requirements of the University system. Nirma University has decided to publish quality research work in allied domains of Engineering with focus on excellence, originality and social relevance. It inspires technical professionals to contribute towards technology enhancement by publishing research papers. This initiative will inculcate research oriented attitude and aptitude amongst budding researchers. The responsibility of the University is to publish an interdisciplinary journal to broaden the scope of engineering and increase its awareness and impact in the day to day life of people. The journal provides an opportunity to share, explore and present new avenues for research to engineering fraternity.

 

Objectives of the Journal

NUJET is a multidisciplinary, open access (OA), all-electronic archival journal that presents the results of original research and developments taking place across various fields of Engineering, Engineering Mathematics, and Engineering Education. In long run, for better reach in the libraries of education institutes and R&D organizations, and also to be the handy reference for the researchers, the Journal is planned to be published in printed form as well. NUJET publishes articles that are of high interest to readers, original, discussing novelty, technically correct, and clearly presented. The journal provides platform to researchers working in allied areas to publish their latest research/findings/surveys/reviews with no publication charges. The journal follows double-blind peer review process. Publication with open access provides wide spectrum of readers and more citation opportunities for research articles published in this journal. The purpose of introducing this online e-journal is to widely reach to researchers interested in all the disciplines of Engineering, by way of open access system through internet and disseminate ideas and knowledge all over the world.  

The clear Objective of NUJET are:

  1. Attracting innovative research contribution from scholars belonging to various parts of the globe and put it on a common platform for research fraternity to refer.
  2. Creating an archival pool of quality intellect for the reference of future generation.
  3. Associating various domains of engineering and providing them a medium to interact.
  4. Propagating interdisciplinary learning approach in the engineering fraternity.
  5. To help researchers in reaching peers through their work and getting constructive criticism or appreciation which will help budding researchers in life-long learning.
  6. Providing a research archive for ready reference of the researchers.
