IET and key publishers address need to improve conference content quality

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) together with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and Elsevier has created draft recommendations for conference content.

These recommendations are designed to uphold the quality of published research presented at scientific meetings and conferences. The presence of low-quality papers in conference proceedings degrades the value and reputation of the author, conference organisers, their sponsors and commercial or non-commercial publishers, and any repository they are part of.

Microlithography techniques give arrays the nanoscale edge

A recent advance in nanotechnology could herald the widespread uptake of nanoelectrode arrays and the next generation of low-cost, high-performance nanoscale biosensing devices.

An interdisciplinary research team from the Schools of Engineering and Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh (in association with Nanoflex Ltd), has overcome some of the constraints associated with conventional nano-scale electrode arrays, to develop the first precision-engineered nanoelectrode array system with the promise of high-volume and low-cost.

The first issue of Healthcare Technology Letters is now available to view

The first issue of Healthcare Technology Letters is now available to view. As its first Editor-in-Chief, Professor Christopher James of the University of Warwick says, “this new initiative from the IET comes at an exciting time within the field of healthcare technology, which has never before seen so many new developments in basic research as well as in the varied fields of application. The IET’s journals have a pedigree in announcing to the world novel discoveries and developments in fields such as electronics, communications and all the other major disciplines within engineering. Healthcare technology, which can be seen as subset of the wider biomedical engineering field, is very much a multi-disciplinary endeavour – where basic research from various fields is brought together with novel applications, and domain specific knowledge, from a wide range of medical, biological and clinical specialties. HTL will provide a one-stop shop for researchers wanting to be kept abreast of the latest developments in this fast-changing field.

The letters format allows for quick turnaround of succinct papers reporting novel technologies, applications and studies. That, coupled with peer-review, constructive feedback to authors, and rapid publication, should help to keep HTL at the cutting edge of high-quality research in its field. The open access options that are also available will help submitting institutions to meet the requirements of their funding bodies.”
