SAE International Journal of Engines

Aims and Scope
The SAE International Journal of Engines is a scholarly, peer-reviewed research journal dedicated to internal combustion engine science and engineering. The Journal spotlights innovative and archival technical reports on all aspects of internal combustion engine development, including research, design, analysis, control, and emissions. Aiming to be the internationally recognized definitive source for researchers and engineers in the area of engine research and development, the Journal publishes only those technical reports that are deemed to have significant and long-term impact on engine development and design. Studies published in the Journal include, but are not limited to, the following subjects:

  • engine combustion and emissions
  • engine design and analysis
  • engine durability and wear
  • engine efficiency
  • engine noise, vibration, and harshness

Editor-in-Chief: Dr. Thomas W. Ryan III
Ryan received his master’s and doctorate, and then served as an Assistant Professor, at Pennsylvania State University until he began his career at Southwest Research Institute in 1979. Over the past 35 years, Ryan has specialized in the areas of engine, fuels, and combustion technology. He has performed both basic and applied combustion research in experiments involving very basic combustion processes and sophisticated diagnostics to actual internal combustion engine systems. Much of his work has involved the application of the appropriate diagnostic techniques in experiments involving both real and simulated combustion environments. Ryan is the 2008 President of SAE International.

If you are interested in being considered for an Associate Editor position, please contact Kim Martin by email and include a brief CV (three-pages max) that includes recent publications.

SAE International's scholarly journals welcome authors from industry, academia, and government to submit original research for potential journal publication. Authors are invited to submit review-ready manuscripts featuring a detailed description of the research (including methodology, assumptions, hardware, observations, analysis, and a comparison of results with prior work). Papers that are deemed appropriate will undergo a comprehensive double-blind peer review for potential publication in the Journal.

SAE's scholarly journals are currently running open Calls for Papers which are not subject to deadlines. Submissions will be evaluated throughout the year. Being published in SAE's scholarly journals can raise an author's profile in the automotive, aerospace, or commercial vehicles fields, while contributing to the industry's body of technical knowledge.

Submissions can be uploaded online via Editorial Manager—SAE's submission and peer review system. When uploading your review-ready manuscript, please include paper title, corresponding author name, and contact information. The submission process for this journal Call for Papers is different from that of SAE's events in that SAE's journals are not considering abstracts by themselves, but rather our editors assess whether the complete paper is appropriate for a journal peer review.
