Welcome to Frontiers in Science and Engineering,
an International Journal edited by Hassan II Academy
of Science and Technology.
Frontiers in Science and Engineering uses author-supplied
PDFs for all online and print publication.
The objective of this electronic journal is to
provide a platform of exchange of high quality
research papers in science and engineering. Though
it is rather of wide and broad spectrum, it is
organized in a transparent and simple interactive
manner so that readers can focus on their direct
All papers are submitted to the normal peer-review
process. Publication criteria are based on :
i) Novelty of the problem or methodology
and problem solving,
ii) Salience of the approach and solution technique,
iii) Technical correctness and outputs,
iv) Clarity and organization.
Papers are first reviewed by the Executive Board
Director who receives the paper and, if relevant
in terms of the overall requirements, it is then
proposed to one of the most appropriate associate
editor on the field who will select 2 to 3 expert
reviewers. We are right now in the process of
completing our international Editorial Board.
Electronic printing will allow considerable time
savings for submission delays which will be reduced
drastically to less than three to six months.
Prospective authors are therefore invited to submit
their contribution for assessment while subjected
to similar quality criteria review used in paper
journals. Authors are notified of acceptance,
need for revision or rejection of the paper. It
may be noted that papers once rejected cannot
be resubmitted. All the details concerning the
submission process are described in another section.
This electronic journal is intended to provide:
• the announcement of significant new
• the state of the art or review articles
for the development of science and technology,
• the publication of proceedings of the
Academy or scientific events sponsored by the
• the publication of special thematic
So that the scientific community can:
• promptly report their work to the scientific
• contribute to knowledge sharing and
dissemination of new results.
The journal covers the established disciplines,
interdisciplinary and emerging ones. Articles
should be a contribution to fundamental and applied
aspects, or original notes indicating a significant
discovery or a significant result.
The topics of this multidisciplinary journal covers
Materials Science, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry,
Computer sciences, Energy, Earth Science, Biology,
Biotechnology, Life Sciences, Medical Science,
Agriculture, Geosciences, Environment, Water,
Engineering and Complex Systems, Science education,
Strategic and economic studies, and all related
modeling, simulation and optimization issues,
Once, a certain number of papers in a specific
thematic, is reached, the Academy might edit a
special paper issue in parallel to the electronic
