Ottawa, ON (26 July 2017) - Canadian Science Publishing (CSP), an independent, not-for-profit scholarly publisher dedicated to serving the needs of researchers and their communities, and the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering (CSME), a constituent society of the Engineering Institute of Canada that offers a wide range of professional development activities for mechanical engineers and students with common fields of interest, announce today that the organizations have reached an agreement for CSP to acquire Transactions of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering.
“We are proud to add Transactions of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering to our growing suite of journals,” said CSP Executive Director, Suzanne Kettley. “As a flagship, not-for-profit, bilingual Canadian journal, Transactions of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering fits perfectly within our publishing program of eminent Canadian and international journals with a long history of excellence,” Ms. Kettley continued. “In addition to this acquisition, we are pleased to strengthen our relationship with the CSME and on behalf of the entire CSP team I am looking forward to working with the society as we make strides toward our shared goals for this journal: publishing world-class, peer-reviewed research, connecting with mechanical engineers in Canada and around the world, and providing the best possible author experience.”
“Through this acquisition, it has been our intention to raise the profile of Transactions of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering and highlight its value for the Canadian mechanical engineering community as well as the international community of mechanical engineers,” said the President of the CSME, Dr. Sushanta Mitra. “The society has been proud to oversee this journal for the last 45 years and for this next step in the journal’s history we are pleased to partner with CSP and excited to witness the journal continue to grow and develop,” continues Dr. Mitra. “With this acquisition, we are also proud to continue to officially call the Transactions of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering CSME’s official technical journal. This is an excellent achievement as we celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday and inch closer to CSME’s 50th anniversary in 2020.”
Transactions of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering is a peer-reviewed journal that has been published quarterly since 1972. Transactions of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering is dedicated to the broad field of mechanical engineering. As part of this acquisition, the Executive Editor-in-Chief of CSP and the CSME will work together to develop an updated journal scope and expand the journal’s editorial board to reflect the core and emerging areas of mechanical engineering. This includes the recent appointment of Dr. Marius Paraschivoiu of Concordia University as Editor of the journal.
The CSME will see to the production of the last issue of 2017. Effective immediately, all new submissions to the journal will be managed by CSP, who will manage all aspects of publishing and distribution for the 2018 and future volume years. CSP is also pleased to launch a new website for general information on Transactions of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering, including updated Instructions to Authors and information about the Editorial Board.
