Information & Procedure:

This journal is the outcome of CIGRE’s desire to broaden its publication to articles of interest for its members and non-members, outside the CIGRE sphere

The Administrative Council has decided to launch this new journal, which will replace the publication of scientific papers in Electra set up in 2010, but with more ambitious objectives in terms of number of articles per issue.

Therefore, from now on, no more scientific papers will be published in Electra, which will remain the journal of our Association. Electra will continue to provide CIGRE members with summaries (in English and French) of the new Technical Brochures and with information about the life of the Association.

The ambition is to publish 10 to 20 articles per issue, every four months.

This first issue of CIGRE Science & Engineering of February 2014 has presented a selection of the best papers presented at the 2014 Paris Session following peer reviews by the Study Committees.

This is a good momentum for the new journal, but keeping it up for the next issues will be a real challenge.

The Editorial Team together with the Central Office will rely on the National Committees to attract articles from their members and especially from the universities and schools in power engineering in their country. They will also rely on them to select the best papers presented in the different regional or national events they organize, and to submit these papers to the editorial team for review.

Thanks to a peer review process that has been put in place to select the articles to be published in CIGRE Science & Engineering, credit points will be awarded to researchers and students who propose articles in connection with the technical fields of CIGRE. This should encourage them to submit articles.

We also rely on the Study Committee Chairmen who are at the heart of the selection process of the papers presented in symposia or in colloquia, to select the best ones for review through the CIGRE Science & Engineering editorial team.
