Scope We would like to inform you, that iJOE, the 'International Journal of Online Engineering' will accept now also papers in the field of Biomedical Engineering and e-Health'. iJOE will therefore be published from January 2019 as the 'International Journal of Online and Biomedical Engineering'. The objective of the journal is to publish and discuss fundamentals, applications and experiences in the fields of Online Engineering (remote engineering, virtual instrumentation and online simulations, etc) and Biomedical Engineering/e-Health. The use of cyber-physical systems, virtual and remote controlled devices and remote laboratories are the directions for advanced teleworking/e-working environments. In general, online engineering is a future trend in engineering and science. Due to the growing complexity of engineering tasks, more and more specialized and expensive equipment as well as software tools and simulators, shortage of highly qualified staff, and the demands of globalization and collaboration activities, it become essential to utilize cyber cloud technologies to maximize the use of engineering resources. Online engineering is the way to address these issues. Considering these, one focus of the International Journal of Online and Biomedical Engineering is to provide a platform to publish fundamentals, applications and experiences in the field of Online Engineering, for example: Remote Engineering Internet of Things Cyber-physical Systems Digital Twins Industry 4.0 Virtual Instrumentation. An important application field of online engineering tools and principles are Biomedical Engineering / e-Health. Topics we are interested to publish are: Automation Technology for Medical Applications Big Data in Medicine Biomedical Devices Biosensors Biosignal Processing Clinical Informatics Computational Neuroscience Computer-Aided Surgery.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
