The Department of Mechatronics, Faculty of Engineering, University of Debrecen launched a new journal in 2014 entitled ’Recent Innovations in Mechatronics (RIiM)’.
The RIiM is a peer-reviewed scientific journal covering the topics of mechatronics and related sciences. The single blind peer review system is used to review the submissions, which means that all articles are judged anonymously by expert colleagues, that is why the author does not know the identiy of the reviewer.
The aim of the journal is to publish the latest studies and researches of professors, departments, scientific workshops and industrial partners working in the field of mechatronics. The journal is published online once, at the end of the year. The languages of the articles can be English or Hungarian, but in both cases the English title and the abstract is obligatory.
RIiM is an Open Access journal, so it provides instant access to articles. It offers free publication for authors and does not charge a submission or any other fees. Articles are published under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC 4.0). The authors retain the copyright but give the journal the right of first publication. Users are free to read, download, share (copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format) and adapt (remix, transform and build upon the material) under the following terms:
Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license and indicate if changes were made.
NonCommercial — You may not use the material for commercial purposes.
