Founded in 2010, the International Journal of Powertrains is a unique international academic journal in the field of vehicle engineering that provides regular publications on the research progress of various modern vehicle powertrain and propulsion technologies and related areas. IJPT aims to build a world-class platform for the global vehicular powertrain community, to provide a globally unified channel for research results in powertrain and propulsion technologies, and to promote interdisciplinary integration, information exchange and sharing.

To facilitate more effective communications, IJPT supports two international powertrain conferences, held in the UK and China in alternating years. IJPT has become one of the main publications in the important international forum of vehicle powertrains. It has formed a unique DNA that distinguishes itself from other journals in the automotive field, and has been increasingly recognised by the global automotive industry.

We are pleased to announce that IJPT has been officially indexed by the World Engineering Digest Ei Compendex since January 2022. This marks a new milestone after the journal was included in SCOPUS, the world's largest abstracts and citation database, in 2017, indicating that IJPT has entered a new development period. It is expected that, with the strong support of international colleagues, IJPT will become an SCI journal in the near future.

The continuing development of IJPT is oriented towards the extremely important and wide-ranging field of green transportation technologies, which are committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions and improving the energy efficiency of transportation systems to serve the overall goal of achieving carbon neutrality. The journal will continue to have a laser focus on technological developments and progress in vehicles and powertrains. IJPT will continue to raise the quality of published papers, the speed and quantity of reviews and publications, and strives to become one of the most influential journals in the fields of vehicles and powertrains.
