Green Technology aspects of precision engineering and manufacturing 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 IJPEM - Green Technology aims to disseminate relevant developments and applied research works of high quality to the international community through efficient and rapid publication. IJPEM - Green Technology covers novel research contributions in all aspects of "Green" precision engineering and manufacturing.

The journal's specific focus areas include, but are not limited to:

-Energy Saving and Waste Reduction in Manufacturing Processes
-Manufacturing of New and Renewable Energy Devices
-Design and Manufacturing of Green Products
-Materials for Green Manufacturing
-Management and Policy for Sustainable Manufacturing

IJPEM-GT is published bi-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.

  • 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, 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, to expand the scope of the symposium to cover a wider range of topics related to green manufacturing, including precision engineering.
