INAE Quarterly e-Newsletter Vol. X, Issue 1, March 1, 2019
From the Editor’s Desk
Dr Purnendu Ghosh served as Chief Editor of INAE publications with great enthusiasm and distinction over the last six years. He had contributed significantly to maintain the high quality of INAE publications. I sincerely extend my thanks for his valuable contributions to the advancement of INAE publications. Under his guidance the “INAE Letters” jointly published by Springer and INAE has made its mark in the international arena since its institution three years ago. The journal “INAE Letters” was originally instituted to ensure the speedy publication of short communications of maximum 3-4 pages. As a continuous endeavour, it has been realised that there is an urgent need to improve the quality of the publication and increase its outreach in the engineering fora. With the objective of soliciting a large number of high-quality papers and to gain wider presence in the national and international arena, it has been decided to expand the scope of INAE Letters. The existing format will be changed to include papers besides short communications. To facilitate this the name of the publication will soon be changed from “INAE Letters” to “Journal of the Indian National Academy of Engineering”.
