Non-Event Technical Papers


SAE non-event technical papers (formerly known as written-only papers) provide authors the opportunity to publish their original work outside of a specific event’s production timeline. These papers are made available on SAE MOBILUS®, SAE’s robust online digital library platform, on an accelerated pace after a blinded peer-review process and are indexed in Scopus and Engineering Village (Ei Compendex). The goal is to provide authors the flexibility to publish on their own schedules, as well as offer a faster time to publication. 

SAE non-event technical papers require a full manuscript for consideration and peer review. The manuscript should include an abstract, keywords, body content, conclusion, references, and any relevant figures/tables. To submit an original manuscript for review, please go to: All submissions are subject to a plagiarism check.

All SAE Technical Papers and Journals have partnered with Dimensions for citation tracking. Click here for more information.

Language Editing

SAE International recommends that all authors who are non-native English speakers ask a native English speaker, English-department personnel, or a professional language-editing service to review their manuscript before submission. This is not mandatory but will help ensure that journal editors and reviewers fully understand the academic content of the article. Suggested services are as follows (no recommendation is implied, nor should it be inferred for any services):

Institutional Repository Policy

Authors may self-archive their accepted manuscripts (but not the final typeset version) in the institutional repository of their higher education employer and/or in subject-based repositories (but not posted to networking sites of a personal, institutional, or social nature), subject to a six-month embargo period and proper credit to SAE International.
