ECS academic staff help to launch a new specialist journal - IET Nanodielectrics
Professor George Chen, the head of Electrical Power Engineering Research Group within ECS, has helped the IET to launch a new specialist journal - IET Nanodielectrics. The new journal will focus on state-of-the-art multidisciplinary research, encompassing a range of fields including new energies, bioscience, biomedical engineering, artificial intelligence, electronic skin, wearable electronic clothing, internet-of-things and electrical insulation of the future. The journal will pay special attention to the three identified areas: fundamentals of advanced nanodielectrics, sciences of advanced nanodielectrics and applications of advanced nanodielectrics. The journal will publish four issues per year with its first issue in April 2018. It joins a growing collection of fully open access journals in the IET Open programme.
Professor Chen said, "The Tony Davies High Voltage Laboratory at Southampton University has been engaged in nanodielectrics research activities for over a decade and earned international reputation in this field. Academic staff have been very active in both CIGRE Nanodielectrics working group and IEEE Nanodielectrics working group. As one of the Editors-in-Chief of this new journal, I intend to promote multidisciplinary research interactions, encourage greater collaboration and enable the development of technologies which use both nanoscience and nanotechnology."
