Fashioned as a high-impact, high-visibility, top-echelon publication, this new ground-breaking journal - Innovation and Emerging Technologies - will feature the development of cutting-edge new technologies in a broad array of emerging fields of science and engineering. The content will have an applied science and technological slant with a focus on both innovation and application to daily lives. It will cover diverse disciplines such as health and life science, energy and environment, advanced materials, technology-based manufacturing, information science and technology, and marine and transportations technologies.

Aims & Scope

It's been said that global scientific discoveries are changing the face of technology, and that technology is changing the world. Enhancing the old rules of scientific reporting and communication, this journal is proposed as a vehicle to preview and showcase the innovation that stands behind future technological changes, to demonstrate how it applies to the modern world, and ensure that the communication is understandable to readers in scientific, business, and academic environments.

Journal themes are "Innovate", "Integrate" and "Apply". The journal provides a platform for the communication of technological advances that will potentially affect and even change our lives in a significant and palpable way; features articles that describe the use of fundamental science to create new and meaningful elements which ultimately can be applied to daily life, and demonstrates how various scientific disciplines can be integrated to ensure technological success and seamless translation. Featured among the contributing authors will be passionate and engaged visionaries who are interested in fostering an understanding of the practical application of science and the good that it can produce.

The Journal is intended for an audience, the majority of which is at a college level and above, and interested in any of the following:

  • a. the various disciplines of the natural sciences, social sciences, engineering, and health-related disciplines
  • b. the relationship between science and technology
  • c. integration of scientific and engineering disciplines for leading edge innovation
  • d. what the future offers in terms of technological innovation and its application.

The science and technological articles in the journal will include but are not limited to the following representative research areas:

  • Alternative Energy: new technologies that utilize renewable energies (wind, solar, etc) as well as technologies that improve the efficiency of traditional forms (oil, gas, etc) of energy. Disciplines represented may include: chemistry, mechanical and chemical engineering, as well as specialists in environmental impact and assessment.
  • Cosmeceuticals/Nutraceuticals: plant-extracted compounds that have medicinal properties when applied onto the skin or when introduced into the digestive system. Disciplines represented may include: genetics, biology, biochemistry, agronomy, and medicine.
  • Imaging: technologies that permit visualization of the structure and function of far-off or hidden objects. Medical imaging is an essential part of today's health care, biomedical research, and drug development. Cutting-edge areas of medical imaging include development of new types of imaging, new hardware and computer software, and new ways of using, visualizing, and analyzing medical images. Other areas where imaging plays a prominent role include: geothermal exploration, security, land mass, ocean and underwater exploration, and space.
  • Medical Devices: devices that may be implantable, or used outside of the body, to produce therapeutic effects (e.g. wound-healing dressings and cardiac support systems). Disciplines represented may include: polymer chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, biomedical engineering, and all medical subdisciplines.
  • Molecular and Cellular Therapies: therapeutic biological agents and drugs (small molecules, proteins and other types of macromolecules), drug delivery and targeting systems, and cell-based therapies. Disciplines represented may include: genetics, chemistry, biochemistry, biomedical engineering, and medicine.
