DEARBORN, Mich., October 23, 2007 - The Society of Manufacturing Engineers announces that Elsevier will publish its Journal of Manufacturing Systems and Journal of Manufacturing Processes online to an international audience via the market-leading, electronic platform ScienceDirect, which currently reaches more than 15 million users worldwide.

The two journals publish relevant literature for manufacturing industries, research and development organizations and SME membership on the underlying theory and application methodologies of integrating established and developing manufacturing processes, equipment and software into systems. Papers encourage the dissemination of scientific methods to shop-floor personnel on systems and process concepts with the potential of decreasing manufacturing costs, increasing productivity and assuring product quality. Peer-reviewed contributions are received from researchers and practitioners on current and future directions of manufacturing systems and processes research, development and implementation.

"The e-publishing arrangement with Elsevier makes possible flawless service to authors and worldwide Web-based access to the SME journals' content to improve their immediacy and impact. This is the stimulus needed for increased vitality and robust growth of the journals," said Shiv G. Kapoor, PhD, FSME, of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, editor of the Journal of Manufacturing Processes.

Elsevier publisher Christopher Greenwell added, "We have been working with SME for many years distributing the hard copy of these titles, and I am delighted to be able to expand our relationship and to make our expertise and resources available to allow SME's journals to reach the global online audience of ScienceDirect. It will both complement and expand our portfolio in the field, and I am looking forward to exceeding SME's expectations."
