Precision engineering and manufacturing issues are becoming ever more important in current and future technologies. New knowledge in this field will aid in the advancement of various technologies that are needed to gain industrial competitiveness. To this end the International Journal of Precision Engineering and Manufacturing (IJPEM) aims to disseminate relevant fundamental and applied research works of high quality to the international community through efficient and rapid publication.

IJPEM covers original and novel research contributions in all aspects of precision engineering and manufacturing. The journal's specific focus areas include, but are not limited to:

- Precision Manufacturing Processes
- Measurements and Control
- Robotics and Automation
- Manufacturing Systems
- Design and Materials
- Machine Tools
- Nano/Micro Technology
- Biomechanical Engineering
- Additive Manufacturing
- Green Manufacturing Technology

IJPEM is published monthly. The contents of the journal are classified into three parts: Regular Paper, Short Communication and Review. Peer review is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts from all over the world. This database is shared with the International Journal of Precision Engineering and Manufacturing - Green Technology.

Impact Factor 1.378

  • About the Society

    New Content ItemThe Korean Society for Precision Engineering (KSPE) was founded in 1984 and consists 10 technical divisions. Each division of the society contributes to national industrial development in precision engineering and technology area in various ways. The society publishes the International Journal of Precision Engineering and Manufacturing (IJPEM) and this journal is one of the major journals in precision engineering and manufacturing fields. From the IJPEM, emerging "green manufacturing" field was split to launch the IJPEM-Green Technology (IJPEM-GT) in 2014. Furthermore, the International Symposium on Green Manufacturing and Applications (ISGMA, www.isgma.org) has been organized mainly by KSPE every year since 2011. In 2018, ISGMA was renamed to International Symposium on PRecision Engineering and Sustainable Manufacturing (PRESM, www.presm.org) to expand the scope of the symposium to cover a wider range of topics related to green manufacturing, including precision engineering.
