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.

Mission and Scope

The mission of the International Journal of Strategic Engineering (IJoSE) is to bring together a compendium of innovative and multidisciplinary research within the field of strategic engineering. The journal outlines and intends to resolve a variety of engineering problems from the strategic point of view. This journal covers a wide range of theories, techniques, concepts, frameworks and applied case studies related to key strategic systems development, maintenance and modeling. Strategic engineering is multifaceted with several key techniques associated with sustainability, safety and security. At the heart of strategic engineering lies the fundamental aspects of safety and security of these systems. It is expected that it will become the first reference point for review in the field, entailing high quality and impact articles. Targeting academics, researchers, professionals, engineers, consultants, and students, IJoSE provides an ideal forum for sharing and disseminating the latest research, opportunities, and challenges in the applications of strategic engineering.
