The South African Journal of Chemical Engineering is now open for submissions.

The UK-headquartered Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) and SAIChE signed a partnership agreement in 2014, which allows both organisations to explore enhanced member benefits. This partnership has enabled SAJCE to join IChemE’s journal portfolio, which is published by Elsevier.

The journal’s aims and scope have also been revised to attract papers under a new topic heading – Unique issues facing chemical engineering in developing nations. New and emerging economies face specific technical and societal challenges, and detailed knowledge of local conditions is needed in order to tackle these challenges more effectively. This aspect of chemical engineering is not widely addressed by other journals.

The journal remains freely available, and will be hosted on Elsevier’s digital platform ScienceDirect, providing international exposure for authors.

The journal’s core topics include: environmental process engineering; reaction engineering; separation technologies; process and materials synthesis; metallurgical process engineering; coal technology; and chemical engineering education.
