JRNAL Accepted for Inclusion in Emerging Sources Citation Index

September 21st, 2016

Atlantis Press is pleased to announce that the Journal of Robotics, Networking and Artificial Life (JRNAL) has been accepted for inclusion in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). The ESCI is one of the indexing databases which makes up the Web of Science Core Collection and is stated to include "peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields". As a result of this inclusion, JRNAL will also be automatically evaluated on an ongoing basis for inclusion in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), a step which would eventually lead to the journal getting an impact factor.

Preface from the Editor-in-Chief Introducing the New Journal

June 30th, 2014

It is my great honor to announce the publication of the new Journal of Robotics, Networking and Artificial Life (JRNAL) together with Atlantis Press. The contents of this journal are often derived from articles submitted to the International Conference on Artificial Life and Robotics (ICAROB).

The ICAROB conference resulted from the AROB-symposium whose first edition was held in 1996 and the eigteenth and last edition in 2013. The AROB symposium was annually organized by Oita University, Nippon Bunri University (NBU), and ALife Robotics Corporation Ltd under the sponsorship of the Science and Technology Policy Bureau, the Ministry of Education, Science, Sports, and Culture (Monbusho), presently, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science, and Technology (Monkasho), Japanese Government, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), the Commemorative Organization for the Japan World Exposition ('70), Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Asian Office of Aerospace Research and Development (AFOSR/AOARD), USA. I would like to express my sincere thanks to not only Monkasho (annually fund support from 1996 to 2013) but also JSPS, the Commemorative Organization for the Japan World Exposition ('70), and various other Japanese companies for their repeated support.

The old symposium was organized by the International Organizing Committee of AROB and was co-operated by the Santa Fe Institute (USA), RSJ, IEEJ, ICASE (Now ICROS) (Korea), CAAI (P.R. China), ISCIE, IEICE, IEEE (Japan Council), JARA, and SICE. The old AROB-symposium expanded much by absorbing much new knowledge and technologies into it.

This history and character of the former AROB symposiums are passed on to the current ICAROB conference and to this journal. From now on, ALife Robotics Corporation Ltd will be in charge of management of both the conference and the journal. The future of the ICAROB is brilliant from the point of view of yielding new technologies to human society in the 21st century.

I hope that fruitful discussions and exchanges of ideas between researchers will take place both during the ICAROB conference and in this journal and that new merged technologies will be created contributing to the happiness of human beings. We also expect to establish an international research institute on Artificial Life and Robotics in the future with the help of ICAROB and JRNAL.

Sincerely,
Prof. Masanori Sugisaka
Editor-in-Chief of JRNAL
