If data are the resource of the 21st century, then data management is the necessary power station of modern engineering sciences including data sciences that converts the resources into usable energy. The scientific method includes hypothesis, abstraction, experiment (simulation), verification and validation. This scientific method needs to be expanded to include data literacy, data management and data infrastructure in engineering, as experimental data increasingly come from the field rather than a laboratory.
Hence, data management in engineering sciences becomes a focused subject of scholarly research in its own right. ing.grid is the platform on which the results of this research are published and discussed.
The journal is committed to the principles of Open Data, Open Access and Open Review. Open Data enhances transparency of scientific processes, accountability of researchers and reusability of research results. Open Access facilitates the dissemination of scientific discoveries, making them operational for addressing societal issues. Open Review nurtures vibrant scholarly discussion.The journal is firmly rooted in the engineering sciences. It welcomes contributions from all engineering subject areas. Moreover, the journal recognizes connections and common practices across all subdisciplines of the engineering community and encourages active exchange of experiences.
The second meeting of the editorial board of the journal “ing.grid – FAIR Data Management in Engineering Sciences” took place on July 27, 2022. The members gathered online to discuss three subjects – the current status of the development, aspects of governance structures of ing.grid, as well as a timeline and next steps leading up to the first issue. The current status showed the progress [...]Read More
Today, ing.grid launched its YouTube channel with a video called “A Vision for a FAIR Publisher”. On this content, it is possible to watch the talk made by the managing editor Kevin Logan at the University:Future Festival, which took place last November, 2rd.Through the presentation, he introduces some questions and concerns that led to the conception of ing.grid, focusing on the need to make [...]Read More
The LaTeX template that can be used for preparing the submissions to ing.grid has been published. Authors may choose any LaTeX-compatible writing environment ( eg, TeX Live) to prepare and submit their paper. Alternatively, and on request, ing.grid also provides access to an Overleaf instance, a web-based, collaborative editor for LaTeX documents. The recommended compiler for all the environments [...]Read More
