SAE International Journals' Mission Statement:
Aligning with SAE International's mission, and building on a 100-year history of SAE Transactions, SAE International's scholarly journals report and archive state-of-the-art research findings that advance self-propelled vehicle and system knowledge in a neutral forum for the benefit of society. Each journal endeavors to serve the needs of academic and industry authors, researchers, and readers in a medium tailored for the discovery, integration, and application of research. Reflecting SAE International's commitment to the highest scientific publishing standards, all published papers are rigorously peer-reviewed by at least three recognized experts prior to selection by a journal's Editorial Board.
