Submit a Paper to the International Journal of Strategic Engineering (IJoSE)

Published Continuous Volume. Est. 2018.
The International Journal of Strategic Engineering (IJoSE) is an international scholarly peer-reviewed journal that aims to provide a platform for researchers, academics, practitioners and emerging scholars to share their invaluable knowledge and expertise on the continuous development within the field of Strategic Engineering. Endurance, resilience, reliability and sustainability of applied systems are all of great importance to many businesses and industries. Complexity however is considered as one of the main obstacles. Modeling and optimization are often seen as a good initial point to tackle the complications in understanding of such systems. Additionally, many end-users and sometimes other stakeholders become instantaneously supportive of the new disruptive technological innovations prior to undertaking comprehensive assessments. This initial interest in utilization and lack of thorough assessments of negative constructs, risks and post-implementation concerns can impose a negative impact on the same stakeholders. Strategic Engineering as a discipline attempts to explore, analyze and discuss numerous frameworks and approaches to the pre-implementation, implementation and post-implementation of engineering systems from a holistic strategic perspective.

The International Journal of Strategic Engineering (IJoSE) provides a platform for researchers, scholars, and practitioners to exchange, and share research activities pertaining to holistic, strategic, adaptive, and systemic principles and practices across various engineering domains.

The Journal aims to facilitate innovative and interdisciplinary research crucial for addressing contemporary global challenges. Accordingly, its fundamental objective is to promote proactive and strategic approaches in the design, implementation, maintenance, management, and adoption of engineering artefacts while promoting a thorough understanding of associated risks and long-term implications. Targeting academics, researchers, professionals, engineers, consultants, and students, IJoSE offers an ideal forum for sharing and disseminating the latest research, opportunities, and challenges in the applications of strategic engineering.


The Journal welcomes studies on an extensive range of theories, techniques, concepts, frameworks, and practical case studies concerning design, development, operation, and maintenance of engineering systems. Accordingly, IJoSE strives to serve as a key reference point for the review of high-quality, impactful articles, becoming a vital resource in the field of strategic engineering. Submissions aligning with the defined key themes of the Journal are strongly encouraged, although submissions closely related in nature will also be given due consideration.


  1. Strategic planning for engineering projects and organizations
  2. Optimizing resource utilization in various engineering areas to enhance productivity and eliminate waste
  3. Strategies for risk assessment, management, and successful engineering projects
  4. Innovation, and methodological and technological Integration in engineering processes
  5. Sustainability and environmental impact
  6. Incorporating sustainability principles and minimizing ecological, social and/or economic impacts in engineering
  7. Collaboration and stakeholder engagement in engineering projects
  8. Quality management in engineering
  9. Agile and adaptive engineering
  10. Globalization, market and regulatory considerations, for technology and knowledge transfer
  11. Legal and ethical compliance in engineering
  12. Application of systems thinking methods in engineering


Submission Procedure:

Prospective authors should note that only original and previously unpublished article manuscripts will be considered. Interested authors must consult the Journal Guidelines for Manuscript Submission at PRIOR to submission. Any further questions may be answered at All article manuscript submissions will be forwarded to at least three members of the editorial review board of the journal for a double-blind peer review. The final decision regarding acceptance/revision/rejection will be based on the reviews received from the reviewers.

Starting January 1st, 2023, this journal will be converting from Hybrid Open Access to full Gold Open Access, meaning from January 1st, 2023 onward all of its published contents will be 100% open access and the copyright of the published work will stay with the author(s) ((Note: IGI Global open access journal article manuscript publishing offers authors the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0) licensing arrangement. The copyright for the work remains solely with the author(s) of the article manuscript), and the publisher will provide the published contents free of charge globally (there will no longer be subscription fees or payment of any kind required for individuals and libraries to access and utilize the published contents).

Once the journal is converted to Gold Open Access in 2023 and will no longer have subscription revenue backing it, the journal will be heavily reliant on Open Access Article Processing Charges (APCs) payment provided by either the author(s) or his/her/their respective institution or another funding agency, AFTER the article manuscript submission has been through a full double-blind peer review and the Editor-in-Chief at his/her full discretion has decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process. The APC will offset the costs of all of the activities associated with the publication of the article manuscript, including the digital tools used to support the manuscript management and review process, the typesetting, formatting and layout, online hosting, the submission of the journal’s content to numerous abstracts, directories, and indexes, third party software (plagiarism checks), editorial support which includes manuscript tracking, communications, submission guideline checks, communications with authors and reviewers, as well as all promotional support and activities which includes metadata distribution, press releases, promotional communications, web content, ads, fliers, brochures, postcards, etc. for the journal and its published contents; and the fact that all published articles will be freely accessible and able to be posted and disseminated widely by the authors.

The Article Processing Charge (APC) for this journal is currently set at $1,300 USD and authors will not be asked to provide payment of the APC fee (directly to the publisher) until AFTER their manuscript has gone through the full double-blind peer review process and the Editor-in-Chief at his/her full discretion has decided to accept the manuscript based on the results of the double-blind peer review process. Please note that there is absolutely NO correlation between the APC (Article Processing Charge) being paid by the author and the results of review process outcomes.

For more information on APCs and Open Access Publishing please visit IGI Global’s open access publishing page here. Funding should be secured before submitting to an IGI Global open access journal. Researchers who are uncertain where to find funding for OA processing charges can visit IGI Global's Open Access Funding Resources Page. It is recommended to read the following article published by Web of Science, “A researcher’s complete guide to open access papers”.

Developing Country Statement:

Those coming from certain developing countries will be able to take advantage of discounts or waivers with careful consideration by IGI Global’s Executive Editorial Board. Also, authors of submitted manuscripts can take advantage of IGI Global’s Read and Publish Open Access Initiative, which allows authors who are affiliated with institutions that are currently subscribed to one or more IGI Global databases to benefit from APC funding (you can learn more about how this all works here). In the case of a multi-authored work, even if only one author is eligible for the discount or waiver, all authors of the work will benefit from the waiver or discount. Additionally, if an author chooses to utilize any of IGI Global’s Author Services on their manuscript, the amount paid for any of these author services will be deducted from the final Article Processing Charge (APC).
