Ingeniare. Revista chilena de ingeniería

Ingeniare is a magazine dedicated to publish scientific works of many engineering fields. This magazine has many years of tradition, it is the successor of the former Revista de la Facultad de Ingeniería -Universidad de Tarapacá. It was created in 1994 and was indexed in SciELO since 2004, since 2006 it adopted the name of Ingeniare. We are grateful for the former administration because their work and efforts kept this scientific magazine along the period mentioned previously.

The publication process of an investigation requires many resources and collaborators. For this reason we appreciate the authors who have trusted in our magazine to publish their works along these years. We want to thank our revising staff who have been loyal and performing an exerted and rigorous work. This task staff acts as a filter in order to accept works which can be considered a real contribution for knowledge. All their recommendations help us to publish accurate articles, having a correct interpretation of results and free of ambiguity in any aspect of the publication. We have to mention that the editorial committee is composed by national and international academics and investigators who help to select all the articles that represent a real interest for readers and subsequently the correction of the articles and other tasks related to this process.

Publication of an article is composed of a series of procedures, based on the trust and honesty of all the participants, such as authors, proofreaders and editors, etc. It is important that the authors send original works and the evaluators of this potential publications perform their work with accuracy and objectivity , following a series of protocols required by our magazine and respecting all the people who work along the process of correction and publication of the article. If any of the participants performs an incorrect procedure, lead us to a great failure and a terrible results for a whole work process. We have to be able to adapt to the new requirements of these modern period, we must be careful of inappropriate procedures which can be avoided if all the participants have the real commitment in order to respect other people's knowledge and work.

On this new edition we start a new stage in our magazine, we want to keep our commitment of publishing all the works of many investigators with new aims and goals for our new magazine standards. In a near future we expect to stablish new ways of works, such as the online sending of articles, this idea is in a test process but we are working on improving the time answer and other improvements in order to advance as the our modern society requires.
