About the JCDE's OAC Payment Service

JCDE is an open-access journal. The Open Access (OA) charges (US$1,650) will be applied to your manuscript. For the publication, you have to pay the OA charges.

Authors can use the following licences for their articles:
Creative Commons Attribution licence (CC BY) and Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial licence (CC BY-NC).

Open Access charges for Review and Research Articles: US$1,650
Free developing country charge*: US$0

You will need a JCDE’s Open Access Charges Payment Service account to use this site. You can create a new account or log in using an existing account. Please note that an Open Access Charges Payment Service account is separate from any account you use for manuscript submission services.

Society for Computational Design and Engineering operates the payment service site, and Oxford University Press is not liable for payment issues. If you have any questions about the JCDE’s OAC Payment Service, please contact us.

About the Journal

Journal of Computational Design and Engineering is a fully open access, international journal that aims to provide academia and industry with a venue for rapid publication of research manuscripts reporting innovative computational methods and applications to achieve a major breakthrough, practical improvements, and bold new research directions within a wide range of design and engineering:

  • Theory and its progress in computational advancement for design and engineering
  • Development of a computational framework to support large scale design and engineering
  • Interaction issues among human, designed artefacts, and systems
  • Knowledge-intensive technologies for intelligent and sustainable systems
  • Emerging technology and convergence of technology fields presented with convincing design examples
  • Educational issues for academia, practitioners, and future generation
  • Proposal for new research directions as well as surveys and retrospectives on the mature field.

Examples of relevant topics include traditional and emerging issues in design and engineering but are not limited to:

  • Field-specific issues in mechanical, aerospace, shipbuilding, industrial, architectural, civil, electrical, and biomedical engineering
  • Geometric modelling and processing, solid and heterogeneous modelling, computational geometry, features, and virtual prototyping
  • Computer graphics, image processing, virtual and augmented reality, and scientific visualisation
  • Human modelling and engineering, user interaction and experience, human-computer interaction (HCI), human-machine interface (HMI), human-vehicle interaction (HVI), cognitive engineering, and human factors and ergonomics with computers
  • Knowledge-based engineering, intelligent CAD, AI and machine learning in engineering, and ontology
  • Product data exchange and management, interoperability, data mining and analytics, and database issues
  • Design theory and methodology, sustainable design and engineering, concurrent engineering, and collaborative engineering
  • Digital and virtual manufacturing, rapid prototyping (3D/4D printing) and tooling, and CNC machining
  • Computer-aided inspection, geometric and engineering tolerancing, and reverse engineering
  • Finite element analysis, optimization, meshes and discretization, and virtual engineering
  • Bio-CAD, Nano-CAD, and medical applications
  • Aesthetic design, new media, and design education
  • Survey and benchmark reports.
