  • Our third newsletter from the InTech Books Highlights series focuses on the role of our editors. InTech book editors are at the core of the book publishing process and bring to the table their expertise, scientific background and professional experience in overseeing all editorial steps. To find out more about editor collaborations in numbers and by subject throughout the past ten years, their geographic and research background, to read interviews with our editors on the pros of the job and to get an idea of how we work with our editors, click here.

  • April 2nd marks World Autism Awareness Day. Every year on this date organisations, institutions, communities as well as people interested in raising awareness on autism celebrate the day with unique activities and awareness raising events. On our part, we are pleased to contribute to raising autism awareness by publishing an interview with our editor Michael Fitzgerald, Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the University of Dublin, Trinity College, Ireland. Also, we share our latest openly accessible books on the topic of autism. To read the interview, access the books and find out more, click here.

  • The latest IJARS Video Series lecture is presented by Dr. Francesco Nori from the Italian Institute of Technology. Dr. Nori has been one of the key contributors to the development of the iCub robot and in his video presentation titled Complete Force Control in Under-Actuated but Constrained Mechanical Systems, he focuses on the latest designs and formulas to advance the dynamics system of a robot - forces that interact and make the system move. The lecture includes a video of the most recent implementation of the whole-body motion control on the iCub. Click here to watch the video.

  • Journal of Circulating Biomarkers’ (JCB) Editor-in-Chief, Shidong Jia, Ph.D., (Genentech Inc, South San Francisco, USA), will be an official speaker at the Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s 11th Annual Biomarkers & Diagnostics World Congress 2015. The event will take place at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel, Philadelphia, PA, May 5-7, 2015. JCB Associate Editors Clark Chen and David T.W. Wong will also participate to the Congress and present their research. The Journal is one of the official sponsoring publications of this year’s Congress.

    We are pleased to announce that InTech will be preserving its e-journals with Portico, ensuring that their content will be secure and available into the future. Since 2004, InTech has collaborated with more than 87,000 authors comprised in more than 2,400 publications. InTech currently publishes six peer reviewed journals spanning robotics, nanotechnology, nanobiomedicine, to engineering business management. The aim is to provide free online access to research, thus helping academics reach diverse new audiences around the world. InTech’s mission is to give all researchers equal opportunity to share ideas and develop their careers, and for their work to have impact among scientific communities. More

  • Following the announcement of our IJARS Women in Robotics ambassadors - Dr. Amy Loufti and Dr. Nina Robson - and their personal stories, we finally reveal our last female ambassador, Dr. M. Bernardine Dias (Carnegie Mellon University, USA). Dr. Dias has kindly agreed to support our initiative and has joined us in promoting women professionals in robotics. Here is her story.

  • Make sure not to miss our latest IJARS Video Series’ clip featuring a presentation by Prof. Fabio Bonsignorio, founder and CEO of Heron Robots as well as affiliate professor at the Biorobotics Institute (Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Italy). The video lecture titled “New AI and Robotics” is centered on novel ideas that might just lead to a paradigm change in the robotics landscape that would allow for robots to spend less computing power and rely more on cognitive knowledge extracted from network interaction physical agents. watch the video

  • IJARS Women in Robotics is a project that we started with the aim to bring into the spotlight the scientific accomplishments of women working in robotics. The goal is to further encourage female authors' submissions to the journal and award the best manuscript. In this spirit and as a part of the initiative, we present you two of our female ambassadors that have agreed to support this special project and will be acting as judges for the best papers selection - Dr. Amy Loutfi and Dr. Nina Robson. Read their stories here.

  • We are pleased to announce that the International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems has published a Special Issue titled Telerobotics And Systems Engineering For Scientific Facilities, now available online to be read and downloaded for free. The Special Issue contains 14 peer-reviewed papers produced by researchers participating to the PURESAFE conference, funded by Marie Curie Actions. The research papers published in the Special Issue focus on promoting telerobotic remote handling technologies integrated with system engineering and are related to specific topics concerning the application of robots in scientific facilities.
