About us

The Company

Inderscience is a global company, a dynamic leading independent journal publisher which has grown to a medium-sized enterprise, large enough to have the capabilities of a major company but small enough to be flexible and responsive to the requirements of its editors, authors and subscribers.

The company disseminates the latest research across the broad fields of science, engineering and technology; management, public and business administration; environment, ecological economics and sustainable development; computing, ICT and internet/web services, and related areas. It grew out of successfully establishing

  • a cluster of automotive titles,
  • a series of titles which emerged from the ground-breaking International Journal of Technology Management which established the discipline of technology management
  • and launching titles in areas of long-term concern (e.g. energy, environment and sustainable development)

Inderscience Publishers was founded in 1979 and has built up a substantial collection of high-quality peer-reviewed international research journals in English, published in digital, print and Open Access formats. We offer various subscription packages, including access to Inderscience Online, which provides a fully-searchable archive of all our articles.

Our Aims

Inderscience journals are designed to:

  • Map new frontiers in emerging technologies and innovation in research, industry and governance
  • Link centres of excellence world-wide to stimulate and enhance creative and application-oriented problem solving for society
  • Explore the synergy and collaboration within the sciences, management and policy creation and implementation
  • Establish authoritative channels of communication between experts, policy makers and practitioners in academia, industry and government

Publishing Ethics

Inderscience endorses the Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors published by COPE and has also produced its own Ethical Guidelines for Authors.

Our Coverage

Including the word "international" in journal titles is a deliberate way to focus attention on the fact that our journals are truly international not only in the authors they attract but also in the diverse countries editors originate from and the international range of their Editorial Boards.

All papers are double-blind refereed.

The Inderscience philosophy is to address complex, wide-ranging academic and research topics and to cluster journals around those topics so that researchers, industrialists and policy makers can subscribe to either a specific journal, a sub-cluster or the complete cluster to provide either a focus on a specific part, or comprehensive coverage, of their chosen field.

The Inderscience portfolio has now advanced to address ten broad topic areas.

Within these broad areas, we have long-standing journals of continuing interest, such as those on technology management or vehicle design, business excellence or environment and pollution, and many more. We also cover new areas of concern such as global warming, nanotechnology, bio-inspired computation, corporate governance, electric and hybrid vehicles, bioinformatics, Indian culture and business management, learning technology, mobile communications, electronic healthcare, cloud computing, etc.

Support for Authors

Inderscience welcomes high-quality articles submitted in accordance with academic and professional protocols. All such papers will be screened upon submission to ensure that they meet our initial criteria and, if found acceptable, will go forward into our double-blind review process. More information on our requirements for submissions is available at our For Authors page.

We endeavour to make the submissions process pleasant and efficient, offering the facility of a custom-built online submissions and review system through which authors can track the progress of their article. Once the paper is accepted, our experienced Journal Managers and typesetters will work with you to ensure the smooth passage of your paper to publication.

Open Access

There are no fees for publishing with Inderscience, unless you require your article to be OA. OA articles accepted for publication are available online and freely accessible to all without any restriction except use for commercial purposes; a fee must be paid by the author(s) for an article to be made OA. Open Access papers may be published according to the Inderscience Open Access option.

Project Partnerships


CrossRef is a collaborative reference linking service that functions as a sort of digital switchboard. It holds no full text content, but rather effects linkages through CrossRef Digital Object Identifiers (CrossRef DOI), which are tagged to article metadata supplied by the participating publishers. The end result is an efficient, scalable linking system through which a researcher can click on a reference citation in a journal and access the cited article. All published Inderscience articles have a DOI.


CLOCKSS (Controlled LOCKSS) is a not for profit joint venture between the world's leading scholarly publishers and research libraries whose mission is to build a sustainable, geographically distributed dark archive with which to ensure the long-term survival of Web-based scholarly publications for the benefit of the greater global research community. Inderscience is a participant in the CLOCKSS project.
