Latest Update on IJPE - May 2015

The International of Journal of Performability Engineering is a refereed interdisciplinary journal which presents all engineering aspects of performance of products, systems or services. This journal was started in July 2005, and this year it is in the eleventh year of its publication. We like to present here how this journal has been progressing since its inception in 2005. Undoubtedly, we have come a long way and will continue making special efforts to ensure that we have participation and representation of all major countries of the world and the journal has a wide coverage of the topics within the planned scope of this journal. It is a matter of great satisfaction that the journal, in general, has been appreciated and has been received very well by the scientific community of the world. This is reflected through the demand /orders received for the copies of the papers published in this journal. We will of course continue to keep the standard of this journal very high and strive to provide high quality papers to our readers following a rigorous refereeing process involving competent reviewers so that the published papers are brief, precise and are of high standard.

We have been bringing out special issues or special sections of an issue in the important and new emerging areas of research and invite acclaimed researchers and practitioners to serve as Guest Editors in order to provide their interaction with researchers and professionals in the area and offer the latest information and literature to the readers of IJPE on the subject.

IJPE also provides a unique facility to authors/researchers to present their new ideas before the scientific community through the medium of Short Communications/Short Papers, which otherwise might take quite some time to develop the idea into a full-fledged research paper. For better interaction between researchers, comments on papers published in IJPE are also encouraged.

Book reviews of latest books are often published in the journal to inform our readership of new arrivals in the literature to keep them up-to-date in their respective areas.

The details of IJPE issues published, during the period July 2005-May 2015, are as follows:
