About the book

The pipeline system is an integral part of our current civilization. All across the globe, it ensures the economical transmission of essential fluids to different industries, including oil and gas production, food processing, residential and industrial buildings, water supply, pulp and paper mills, pharmaceutical/medical manufacturing, and chemical manufacturing. Pipeline transportation plays a significant role in running the world economy, similar to the contribution of blood vessels in ensuring life. In this background, it is imperative to disseminate a comprehensive understanding of the fundamental and advanced knowledge in various disciplines of pipeline engineering. The successful design, construction, and operation of a pipeline require establishing a balance of production, cost, safety, and integrity. This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in technology, networks, modeling, and management with a specific focus on the most important evidence-based developments in this important area. The exploration of the technological details would competently support the decision-making process.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

M.Sc. Iva Ribic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
