We are honoured to announce that we have signed a contract with Springer last year. According to this contract, we are going to publish each year 4 edited books and 1 fundamental book in Sustainable Aviation and 4 symposium proceedings for a total of 45 books over the next five years. All these books will have the SARES logo on them and they will be indexed in Scopus. We welcome you to submit your research papers to these books.
At SARES, we are publishing two international journals, the International Journal of Aviation Science and Technology (IJAST), (https://ijast.org/) and the International Journal of Sustainable Aviation (IJSA), (https://ijsa.org/) . We are inviting you to submit your valuable papers to these journals.
In addition, SARES gives six important scientific awards every year and award ceremonies are being held during the closing session of the ISSA Symposia each year.
The awards are given in four categories to scientists and researchers who work on Sustainable Aviation and two more additional awards. These are: Lifetime Achievement Award, Science Award, Young Scientist Award, Young Researcher Award. In addition, a Gratitude Award and a Company Award are presented.
The new goal of the association is to get organized around the world by opening SARES local chapters in various countries. This year, we will open representative offices in 10 countries as a target. We have already started working on this matter.
In addition, this year we will actively run the Association's International Board. We will call the Society's International Board of Directors to a meeting every three months.
We invite you to become a member of SARES.
