ASTM International Now Accepting Submissions For New Manufacturing Journal

ASTM International announced it is accepting papers for its newest journal, Smart and Sustainable Manufacturing Systems (SSMS), which will launch January 2017.

“A journal in smart manufacturing is a perfect fit for ASTM,” says SSMS Editor-in-Chief Dr. Sudarsan Rachuri. “The science behind the growing number of standards in this field needs to be explained so that everyone can validate and have trust in the standards.”

Rachuri, who met today with ASTM President James Thomas and Executive Vice President Katharine Morgan, manages the Smart Manufacturing Design and Analysis program at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology.

Rachuri has recruited more than 50 top global experts from academia and industry to serve as editors and advisors for the new journal. “We are particularly interested in papers at the intersection of manufacturing science, information science and data science,” notes Rachuri. The group welcomes research papers, industry case studies, industry application papers, survey papers and technical notes.

“This journal will support many smart-manufacturing related initiatives,” Rachuri adds. “For example, here in the U.S., the journal will serve as an excellent venue for those involved with the National Network of Manufacturing Institutes – including the newly-announced Clean Energy Manufacturing Innovation Institute – to publish their work.”

The launch of SSMS is part of ASTM’s commitment to serve as the global leader in smart manufacturing standards. Already, 5,300 experts and 1,500 organizations from 65 countries participate in ASTM’s committees in fields such as additive manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, industrial biotechnology, nanotechnology and automation technology. ASTM’s Smart Manufacturing Advisory Committee coordinates standards development across these fields while also building strategic partnerships.
