We are pleased to announce that the journals Axioms, Behavioral Sciences, Photonics, Separations and Toxics were recently accepted for inclusion in the newly launched Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) in Web of Science.
ESCI serves to highlight promising journals which are still under consideration for the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) or the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI).
The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), Social Sciences Citation Index
(SSCI), and Web of Science™ (WoS) are Thomson Reuters products.
We are excited to announce the opening of our new editorial office in Barcelona, Spain. The launch team is led by a Senior Editor and comprises further staff holding doctoral degrees with several years of research experience. The new editorial team will help us to get closer to European research communities and progress Sciforum, the platform to support the scientific community via conference hosting and other functions. They will also help spread the word about Open Access and meet academics at scientific events.
We are pleased to announce that Prof. Nam-Trung Nguyen has been appointed as Editor-in-Chief of Micromachines (ISSN 2072-666X). His appointment will start on 1 March 2016.
Nam-Trung Nguyen, Ph.D., is a Professor at the Griffith University, Australia and the Director of Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre. He received his Dip-Ing, Dr Ing and Dr Ing Habil degrees from Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany, in 1993, 1997 and 2004, respectively. In 1998, he was appointed as a postdoctoral research engineer at Berkeley Sensor and Actuator Center, University of California at Berkeley, USA. From 1999 to 2013, he worked as an Associate Professor with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Prof. Nguyen was runner-up of the Inaugural ProSPER.Net–Scopus Young Scientist Awards in Sustainable Development in 2009 and the runner-up of the ASAIHL–Scopus Young Scientist Awards in 2008. He is a Fellow of ASME and a Member of IEEE. His research is focused on microfluidics, nanofluidics, micro/nanomachining technologies, micro/nanoscale science, and instrumentation for biomedical applications. He has published over 230 journal papers, nine books and hold three patents.
Prof. Nguyen takes over from Prof. Miko Elwenspoek, who has held the position since the journal started six years ago. During the tenure of Prof. Elwenspoek, the journal has had great success, seeing a sustained increase in both the number of publications and the journal impact. We are extremely grateful to Prof. Elwenspoek for his hard work and support in growing the journal to its current state.
