We are pleased to announce that ASEAN Engineering Journal (AEJ) has now been accepted for inclusion in Scopus.

On June 5th, 2019, Mr. Yusuke Murakami, Managing Director, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Kasem Choocharukul, Assistant Executive Director, Prof. Dr. Teerapong Senjuntichai, Section Editor-in-Chief, and Mr. Hideki Shimazu, Managing Editor, led AEJ Editorial team to submit the Scopus application at King Mongkut’s University of Technology.  Prof. Dr. Narongrit Sombatsompop, Head of Thai-Journal Citation Index Center (TCI) and Chairman of ASEAN Citation Index (ACI), was also present to advise and facilitate the application process.

AEJ has officially been accepted for inclusion in Scopus database on June 17th, 2019, taking only 13 day-turnaround time.

TCI-TRF-Scopus Collaboration Project, initiated by Thai-Journal Citation Index Center (TCI), Thailand Research Fund (TRF), and Elsevier-Scopus, is a three-year project (2017-2020) which aims to enhance research visibility, capacity and impact of journals in Thailand and ASEAN countries. A number of trainings, workshops and seminars, along with monitoring sessions has been organized to improve the quality of journals in the program and ultimately reduce the turnaround time of Scopus application process. As one of the 40 selected journal titles in TCI-TRF-Scopus Collaboration Project, AEJ was the 27th journal accepted by Scopus. Our future articles will be indexed and appear in Scopus database.

AEJ editorial team would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to TCI-TRF-Scopus Collaboration Project for the continuous guidance and support to improve our journal quality and standard. The long-term contribution and tireless effort from all Editor-in-Chiefs, Reviewers, Editorial Board Members, and Authors are also the key factors that helped AEJ to achieve this significant milestone today.
