Aims & Scope

Industrial Robot publishes peer reviewed research articles, technology reviews and specially commissioned case studies. Each issue includes high quality content covering all aspects of robotic technology, and reflecting the most interesting and strategically important research and development activities from around the world.

All research articles undergo rigorous double-blind peer review, and the journal’s policy of not publishing work that has only been tested in simulation means that only the very best and most practical research articles are included.  This ensures that the material that is published has real relevance and value for commercial manufacturing and research organizations. For a full list of the journal's review board, please see below.


 Industrial Robot's coverage includes, but is not restricted to:

    Automatic assembly
    Flexible manufacturing
    Programming optimisation
    Simulation and offline programming
    Service robots 
    Autonomous robots
    Swarm intelligence
    Humanoid robots
    Prosthetics and exoskeletons
    Machine intelligence
    Military robots
    Underwater and aerial robots
    Cooperative robots
    Flexible grippers and tactile sensing
    Robot vision
    Mobile robots
    Search and rescue robots
    Robot welding
    Collision avoidance
    Robotic machining
    Surgical robots

Key benefits

Managers and engineers responsible for the design, development and application of robots will gain valuable, practical insights into current developments, which can be applied immediately to their own robotics systems. The journal is also an important resource for industries not yet using robots, as their potential value to a much broader industry base becomes apparent.

Authors are encouraged to include Executive Summaries that complement article abstracts by highlighting the commercial potential of the work that is presented; and online videos that add an extra dimension to the published work.

Key journal audiences

Academics and researchers, and engineers and managers working in a wide range of manufacturing industries as well as the increasingly important areas of service robots, surgical robots and mobile autonomous robots.
