About Advances in Chemical Engineering: Student Perspectives

This open access journal publishes student articles arising from a taught final year MEng module, Recent Advances in Chemical Engineering, at the University of Huddersfield; student-derived articles from similar initiatives at other universities are also welcome. The journal also publishes book reviews written by chemical engineering students. Articles are designed to be of relevance to industry professionals wishing to obtain an overview of a subject area. A major feature of the articles is an emphasis on understanding what is distinctively “chemical engineering” about the advance, in order to elucidate the contributions that chemical engineers might make to this advance, and/or the ways in which the discipline and profession of chemical engineering might need to evolve in response to this advance. These aims serve to give a distinctive perspective on the interface between topical developments and the professional practice and academic discipline of chemical engineering.

Focus and Scope for Advances in Chemical Engineering: Student Perspectives

Publication Fees

This journal is published by the University of Huddersfield Press. Unlike many open-access publishers, the University of Huddersfield Press does not charge any author fees. This does not mean that we do not have costs. Instead, our costs are supported by the University of Huddersfield.

Peer Review

The origin of the articles and book reviews, as part of a taught module, means that the initial review is carried out as part of the interim feedback and final assessment of the submissions. This assessment is not blind; the students know the academic staff undertaking the assessments, and the staff know the students. Only those articles meeting a quality threshold will be sent for further review with a view to acceptance for publication. This further review will be undertaken by a member of the editorial board, following the COPE guidelines for ethical review. Reviewers will be asked to describe both the merits of the submission and any points for improvement.

Publication Cycle This journal publishes in issues every 12 months.
