Aim and Scope

The "Engineering World" journal has been established since 2019 and provides a forum for publication of recent engineering advancements and developments in electrical, electronic, mechanical, chemical, environmental, civil, mining, nuclear, biomedical engineering and interdisciplinary areas of applied sciences. All manuscripts submitted are peer reviewed by 3-6 qualified scholars assigned by the Editorial Board.

Review Process

The "Engineering World" sends each paper to many independent reviewers, experts in the area of the paper. So, each paper will be evaluated, at least, by three independent experts according to the following Criteria
