JICA Project for AUN/SEED-Net is pleased to officially announce the transfer of ASEAN Engineering Journal’s (AEJ) ownership to Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) from April 1st, 2021 onwards.
As JICA Project for AUN/SEED-Net will be terminated in March 2023, it has been our strong determination to secure and sustain the achievements of our core programs, including AEJ, by bestowing this precious legacy of the project to one of our Member Institutions (MIs).
Following the rigorous candidate selection process, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, and Penerbit UTM Press, the affiliated publishing division of the university, had proven their dedicated commitments towards the sustainability of AUN/SEED-Net network, and expertise in all areas of journal management, which fulfilled the requirements set by the committee, thus has been selected as the final candidate for the ownership transfer.
Despite being transferred to a new owner, AEJ operations and scope of publication will remain the same as before. However, there will be some minor adjustments in the operation system, procedures, management and editorial board structure, as these changes are deemed necessary for further performance development and recognition of the journal.
Regardless of any changes that applied, we, JICA Project for AUN/SEED-Net, will firmly adhere to and stand for the continuity of the fair and coherent contribution among all MIs. More importantly, AEJ will maintain its indexed status in Scopus, ASEAN Citation Index, and Google Scholar.
Please be introduced to the new AEJ Homepage by following the link below:
For further information on the roles of Editorial Board Members, and publication policies, please see the Annex.
JICA Project for AUN/SEED-Net would like to take this opportunity to express our deep gratitude towards the past contributions to AEJ from all parties and partners. We hope to see this continuous support to the journal even after the transfer as to sustain the relationships among our network members, and together witness the flourishing success of AEJ in the future.
