    Aims and Scope


    The Journal “Intelligent Service Robotics” fosters the dissemination of new discoveries and novel technologies that advance the application of robotics for assisting humans on a yet richer dimension. The Journal will cover a broad spectrum of topics ranging from intelligent robots acting as an everyday servant, secretary, or companion to the intelligent robotic functions in the form of embedded robotics, ambient intelligence, or intelligent space. The journal directs special attention to the emerging significance of integrating robotics with information technology and cognitive science (such as ubiquitous and adaptive computing,information integration in a distributed environment, and cognitive modelling for human-robot interaction), which spurs innovation toward a new multi-dimensional robotic service to humans. The journal intends to capture and archive this emerging yet significant advancement in the field of intelligent service robotics. The journal will publish original papers of innovative ideas and concepts, new discoveries and improvements, as well as novel applications and business models  which are related to the field of intelligent service robotics described above and are proven to be of high quality. The areas that the Journal will cover include, but are not limited to:

    Intelligent robots serving humans in daily life or in a hazardous environment, such as home or personal service robots, entertainment robots, education robots, medical robots, healthcare and rehabilitation robots, and rescue robots (Service Robotics),

    Intelligent robotic functions in the form of embedded systems for applications to, for example, intelligent space, intelligent vehicles and transportation systems, intelligent manufacturing systems, and intelligent medical facilities (Embedded Robotics),

    The integration of robotics with network technologies, generating such services and solutions as distributed robots, distance robotic education-aides, and virtual laboratories or museums (Networked Robotics).

Springer may use the article in whole or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or data networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable devices. This includes interactive and multimedia use and the right to alter the article to the extent necessary for such use.

    Authors may self-archive the Author's accepted manuscript of their articles on their own websites. Authors may also deposit this version of the article in any repository, provided it is only made publicly available 12 months after official publication or later. He/she may not use the publisher's version (the final article), which is posted on SpringerLink and other Springer websites, for the purpose of self-archiving or deposit. Furthermore, the Author may only post his/her version provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication and a link is inserted to the published article on Springer's website. The link must be accompanied by the following text: "The final publication is available at link.springer.com".

    Prior versions of the article published on non-commercial pre-print servers like arXiv.org can remain on these servers and/or can be updated with Author's accepted version. The final published version (in pdf or html/xml format) cannot be used for this purpose. Acknowledgement needs to be given to the final publication and a link must be inserted to the published article on Springer's website, accompanied by the text "The final publication is available at link.springer.com". Author retains the right to use his/her article for his/her further scientific career by including the final published journal article in other publications such as dissertations and postdoctoral qualifications provided acknowledgement is given to the original source of publication.

    Author is requested to use the appropriate DOI for the article. Articles disseminated via link.springer.com are indexed, abstracted and referenced by many abstracting and information services, bibliographic networks, subscription agencies, library networks, and consortia.
