Aims & Scope

Assembly Automation publishes peer reviewed research articles, technology reviews and specially commissioned case studies. Each issue includes high quality content covering all aspects of assembly technology and automation, and reflecting the most interesting and strategically important research and development activities from around the world.  Because of this, readers can stay at the very forefront of industry developments.

All research articles undergo rigorous double-blind peer review, and the journal’s policy of not publishing work that has only been tested in simulation means that only the very best and most practical research articles are included.  This ensures that the material that is published has real relevance and value for commercial manufacturing and research organizations.

Assembly Automation’s coverage includes (but is not restricted to):

  • Design for assembly and disassembly
  • Assembly sequence planning
  • Assembly line design
  • Advanced composites
