JRM: [Important notice] Page charge revision
JRM: [重要] 論文掲載料価格改定のお知らせ

Publication charge revision

Due to the increase in expenses for production and the improvement of our e-publication services, we will revise the publication charge of Journal of Robotics and Mechatronics. The new price will be applied to the submissions after June 1, 2024. For submissions made prior to this date, the old pricing will be applied.
This revision entails a significant change in our pricing structure, transitioning from page-based page charges to article-based Article Processing Charges, aligning with the recent trend of increasing importance of electronic media. Additionally, we will prioritize electronic versions over print editions. As a result, color charges will be discontinued, and all pages, including reprints, will be considered color pages. Reprints will be priced according to the number of pages, as they are printed materials.
For details on the new pricing, please refer to the page of instruction for authors — “For Authors.”
We will continue to strive for the maintenance of OPEN-ACCESS publication and improvement of services. We sincerely appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

近年の物価上昇と今後のサービス向上の為、誠に勝手ながら2024年6月1日からの論文掲載料(Page Charge)の価格を改定させていただきます。2024年6月1日以降のご投稿より新価格を適用させていただきます(それまでにご投稿いただいた論文につきましては、旧価格となります)。
今回は、電子媒体の重要性が増している近年の潮流に合わせて、これまでのページ数に基づくPage Charge から、論文ごとの掲載料となるArticle Processing Chargeへ、価格体系の変更を含む大きな改定となります。また今後は、冊子体ではなく電子版を主力メディアとします。これに伴い、カラー料金を廃止します。電子版だけでなく冊子体も含めて、全ページカラーを基本とします。別刷りにつきましても、全ページカラー印刷とします。 別刷りは印刷物ですので、料金はページ数に応じた価格体系に変更させていただきます。新価格については、投稿案内のページ「著者の皆様へ」に掲示しております。

If you would like to plan and edit a special issue as a guest editor at JRM, please fill the proposal application form and send it to JRM Editorial Office via email. The Editorial Committee will examine the proposal and inform you of the committee’s decision.

Indexed in DOAJ

Journal of Robotics and Mechatronics (JRM) has been indexed in DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals).
DOAJ is a database of Open Access journals operated by Infrastructure Services for Open Access(IS4OA), UK. It includes high-quality, peer-reviewed journals which satisfy the strict criteria. In recent years where predatory journals become a social problem, DOAJ is known as “white list” of non-predatory journals and it guarantees the journal’s reliability. It is also expected to increase JRM’s international recognition and accessibility.
We would like to express our gratitude to all concerned, and will make efforts to further improve the journal value.

[Congratulation!] JRM is indexed in Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)

We are glad to announce that the Journal of Robotics and Mechatronics (JRM) is now indexed by Thomson Reuters’ Emerging Souces Citation Index (ESCI). ESCI is a new index provided by Thomson Reuters from November 2015. ESCI will extend the universe of publications in Web of Science to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields. Papers published in JRM are now searchable in Web of Science. JRM can continue to be considered for inclusion in SCIE. We hope the papers published on JRM will attract attention from researchers all over the world and contribute to promote the development of research. JRM will make continuous efforts to be indexed in SCI.
