OXFORD,England, November 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services announces the launch of a new,
international, open access journal, Case Studies in Engineering Failure
Analysis .

Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis provides a forum for the rapid
publication of short, structured case studies in engineering failure analysis
and will form an essential compendium for practitioners in this field. The
scope of the journal will include case studies of component failures in
mechanical, civil, aerospace, mining, oil and gas, medical, electrical,
transportation, power generation, process and forensic engineering, although
failure of engineering components in other disciplines will also be
considered.

The Editor-in-Chief of the journal, Richard Clegg, said of the launch, "Like
medical practitioners, most failure analysts use a combination of a deep
understanding of science and knowledge of past experience to provide an
optimal solution to their challenges. We hope to develop the journal into an
indispensible body of experience in engineering failures, which will assist
experienced and novice engineering failure analysts to more quickly come to an
understanding of the causes of the failures which they are studying."

Dr. George Pantazopoulos from ELKEME Hellenic Research Centre for Metals S.A.,
Athens, Greece, first author of the first paper submitted and accepted for
publication in the journal, said, "The journal focuses on real failure
analysiscase studies in engineering applications across the industry and as
an open access journal it provides a channel for better exchange of failure
analysis experience among engineers from all industrial sectors. Rapid
publication allows faster sharing of such experience for improved future
practice." 

Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis is the first title in a series of
open access journals called 'Case Studies in …' to be launched by Elsevier
within the field of engineering. Journals in the series will all follow the
article based publishing model which allows for immediate publication of
final version of a paper without waiting for other articles to be ready to
compile a full issue.

The first articles of Case Studies in Engineering Failure Analysis are
available to view online on ScienceDirect .
