SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars - Electronic and Electrical Systems

Aims and Scope
The SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars—Electronic and Electrical Systems aims to be the primary source of comprehensive and innovative research in the areas of electrical and electronic systems and components such as those related to connectivity and communications, controls, active safety, infotainment, intelligent vehicle systems, electromagnetic compatibility, actuators, diagnosis, and related subjects. It provides a platform for researchers and practicing engineers to present their advanced work—not just engineering applications, but work that develops new knowledge—and follow the state of the art within automotive engineering.

Publications in this Journal are based on peer reviews; the Journal accepts authoritative, non-biased original research—theoretical and applied—on the electrical and electronics systems of modern passenger automobiles. Following a strict peer review, accepted papers are of outstanding and archival value, which either advance the state of the art, or insightfully review and present prior research in ways that increase understanding of the field.

In addition to full-length research papers, the Journal also publishes other communications that offer a comprehensive and non-biased overview of the directions and practices in this area, as well as short papers, based on similar quality criteria.

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.

Aims & Scope

The SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars–Electronic and Electrical Systems aims to be the primary source of comprehensive and innovative research in the areas of electrical and electronic systems and components such as those related to connectivity and communications, controls, active safety, infotainment, intelligent vehicle systems, electromagnetic compatibility, actuators, diagnosis, and related subjects. It provides a platform for researchers and practicing engineers to present their advanced work-not just engineering applications but work that develops new knowledge-and follow the state of the art within automotive engineering.

The Journal strives to facilitate discussion between researchers, engineers, academic faculty and students, and industry practitioners working with systems as well as components, and the technological aspects and functions of powertrains and propulsion systems alternative to the traditional combination of internal combustion engine and mechanical transmission.

Publications in this Journal are based on peer reviews; the Journal accepts authoritative, non-biased original research-theoretical and applied-on the electrical and electronics systems of modern passenger automobiles. Following a strict peer review, accepted papers are of outstanding and archival value, which either advance the state of the art, or insightfully review and present prior research in ways which increase understanding of the field.

In addition to full-length research papers, the Journal also publishes other communications that offer a comprehensive and non-biased overview of the directions and practices in this area, as well as short papers, based on similar quality criteria.

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.
