Special Issues of the Journal of Process Control

The Journal of Process Control is aiming to publish more Special Issues, especially those which deal with novel or innovative fields of research across the various facets of modelling, control and operations of process systems.

Special Issues should conform to the guidelines set out below: • Special Issues will only be considered if they are within the scope of the journal. • A Special Issue typically comprises 10 to 12 papers. • Papers for Special Issues can be either invited or they could be solicited by a Call for Papers. • As with regular papers submitted to the journal those submitted to a Special Issue require full peer review. • All papers in Special Issues related to conferences need to be expanded and/or rewritten from the conference version. A reprint of a conference paper in a Special Issue is not acceptable. • The journal does not publish full conference proceedings. In this case please consider Procedia (link)
