IET and CIE sign co-publishing agreement

The Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) has signed a co-publishing agreement with the Chinese Institute of Electronics (CIE) for global online publication of the Chinese Journal of Electronics (CJE).

The agreement, which excludes mainland China, runs for a five year period, starting this year.

This agreement, which will significantly extend the international influence of both organisations was negotiated with the CIE’s Deputy Secretary, Forrest Lin, also Secretary General of China Cloud Computing Technology Association.

The CJE will join the IET portfolio of leading engineering journals hosted on the IET’s Digital Library, offering it extensive exposure in 100+ countries outside mainland China, as well as access to the platform’s advanced user functionalities. The CJE will also benefit from the IET’s considerable international sales and marketing expertise.

Mrs Xu Xiaolan, the General-Secretary of CIE said: “This cooperation will be an important step toward increasing not only the CJE's citations and hopefully its impact factor but also the exposure of the IET Digital Library and the easy access to CJE in it.”

Widely known and respected in China, the CJE is the world’s window into Chinese academic achievements in the field. The journal’s coverage includes computer technology, signal processing, microwaves, and electronic systems engineering. The CJE is indexed by Thomson Reuters, SCOPUS and EI Compendex.

Tim Hamer, director of knowledge, IET said: “Through this partnership with the Chinese Institute of Electronics we demonstrate many synergies with the CIE and we welcome the opportunity to extend the reach of a journal with such strong pedigree, alongside our own leading research journals”.

The CJE will be available via the IET Digital Library from April 2015 with the content available to registrants free of charge for the remainder of 2015.
