About the Journal
History of Jurnal Teknologi
Jurnal Teknologi was first published in April 1977, then known as Teknologi. Its publications, however, only began to take off on regular basis in 1992.
The publication of Jurnal Teknologi aims to be the forum for academics and practitioners to write and publish their latest work. Specifically, the journal serves to disseminate to the public results of current and on-going research projects conducted by UTM academics in various fields.
As the journal continues to grow, starting from June 1999, with volume No. 30, Jurnal Teknologi was revamped. The journal now comes in a set of six series (A-F), published twice a year (June and December). Each series specifically focuses on specialized fields: A (Manufacturing, Advanced Materials, Energy, and Transport); B (Construction, Design, and Planning); C (Science and Mathematics); D (Electronics, Control, Communication, and Information Technology); E (Management, Education, and Social Sciences) and F (Environment and Process Technology).
Starting from year 2010, six series of Jurnal Teknologi were merged into two series known as; Jurnal Teknologi (Science and Engineering) and Jurnal Teknologi (Social Sciences). Published online six time a year (January, March, May, July, September and November). On 2016, Jurnal Teknologi (Sciences and Engineering) will be published every month. However, under new management, Jurnal Teknologi (Science and Engineering) will be published online six time a year (January, March, May, July, September and November) on 2017.
On 2014, Jurnal Teknologi (Sciences & Engineering) has been separated from Jurnal Teknologi (Social Sciences). Jurnal Teknologi (Social Sciences) is now known as Sains Humanika.
Jurnal Teknologi (Sciences & Engineering) is now indexed by SCOPUS.
Focus and Scope
Jurnal Teknologi (Sciences & Engineering) is an international research journal and invites contributions of original and novel fundamental research. The journal aims to provide an international forum for the presentation of original fundamental research, interpretative reviews and discussion of new developments in the area of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Applied Mathematics and Natural Sciences.
Papers which describe novel theory and its application to practice are welcome, as are those which illustrate the transfer of multi-disciplinary techniques from other disciplines. Reports of carefully executed experimental work, which is soundly interpreted are also welcome. The overall focus is on original and rigorous research results which have generic significance.
Jurnal Teknologi (Sciences & Engineering) invites manuscripts based on original research in any area of Mathematics, Natural Sciences (Biological Sciences, Physical Sciences: Physics, Chemistry, Astonomy, Earth Science), Applied Mathematics and Natural Sciences (Building Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Material Science, Bioechnology, Medical Engineering), Electrical Engineering.
Jurnal Teknologi (Sciences & Engineering) does not limit itself to a single perspective or approach, but seeks to represent the diversity of the aforementioned field.
Comments and Proposals: Jurnal Teknologi (Sciences & Engineering)Â is interested in receiving comments/feedback on this and our other journals and welcome publication proposals for books, electronic products, new journals and co-operation for existing journals.
Peer Review Process
The practice of peer review (double blind) is to ensure that good paper is published. It is an objective process at the heart of good scholarly publishing and is carried out on all reputable scientific journals. Our referees therefore play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of Jurnal Teknologi.
Special issues and/or conference proceedings may have different peer review procedures involving, for example, Guest Editors, conference organisers or scientific committees. Authors contributing to these projects may receive full details of the peer review process on request from the editorial office.
Jurnal Teknologi is published online with a frequency of Six (6) issues per year (January, March, May, July, September and November).
Open Access Policy
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) is a leading innovation-driven entrepreneurial research university in engineering science and technology located both in Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia and Johor Bahru, the southern city in Iskandar Malaysia, which is a vibrant economic corridor in the south of Peninsular Malaysia.
With a strength of more than 2,000 academic staff, of which more than 200 are foreign graduate faculty members, UTM continuously strives to develop and enhance quality academic and professional programmes of international standard and global recognition. The student population consists of more than 11,000 full-time undergraduate students, more than 6,000 enrolled on distance learning programmes as part-time students and more than 9,000 postgraduate students in various fields of specialisation. Out of this, more than 3,000 are foreign students.
UTM's mission is to lead in the development of creative and innovative human capital and advanced technologies that will contribute to the nations wealth creation. This is in line with the aspiration of the country towards becoming a knowledge-based, innovation-led economy grounded in creativity and innovation with high value creation. Through a strategic transformation of its organizational structure, UTM is focused in creating a vibrant academic culture and fertile intellectual ecosystem that inspire creativity and innovation.
Innovation is thus central to its core value, with the innovation culture permeated across all dimensions of the university including teaching and learning, research and development, writing and publication, management and administration, staff and student development, consultancy and professional services and also university social responsibility. Innovation is expedited by the university community through concerted effort and strong team spirit with shared mission and purpose.
UTM has also established a reputation for innovative education and leading-edge, proven by becoming the three-time winner for the National Intellectual Property Award for organization category. A stimulating research culture exists in UTM through 11 Research Alliances (RA) in strategic disciplines namely Sustainability, Infocomm, Water, Cybernetics, Biotech, Construction, Materials & Manufacturing, K-Economy, Energy, Transportation and Nanotechnology. In addition there are 28 Centres of Excellence (CoE) in addition to academic faculties to service technological education and research needs of the university.
UTM is also actively engaged in research collaboration with renowned institutions such as Harvard University, MIT, University of Oxford, Imperial College of London, University of Cambridge, Tokyo University and Meiji University on areas of mutual interests. To facilitate further engagement and networking in academic and research undertakings, international satellite offices have been established in Tokyo, and already in the pipeline are plans to establish satellite offices in Doha (Qatar), Madinah (Saudi Arabia), and in Boston (USA).
UTM is thus renowned for being at the forefront of engineering and technological knowledge and expertise, contributing to the technical and professional workforce of the nation since 1904. Being a graduate-focused university, UTM has the highest number of postgraduate enrolment in engineering and technology, which is one of the important components in contributing towards the development of an innovation-led economy. Having produced more than 200,000 technical graduates and qualified professionals over the years, UTM has earned its place as Malaysia's premier university in engineering and technology which inspires creativity and innovation.
