1 Los Angeles | London | New Delhi Singapore | Washington DC SAGE and IMechE: Engineering the Future 11 th Ankos Annual Conference April 30, 2011 Mark Lord

2 SAGE and IMechE: Engineering the Future Los Angeles | London | New Delhi Singapore | Washington DC SAGE Engineering & Materials Science Collection ●50 journals: 18 from the UK’s Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) - September high-quality journals covering civil engineering, electronic engineering and materials science ●SAGE now 3 rd in the Mechanical Engineering Category ●Engineering research key driver for economic growth

3 SAGE and IMechE: Engineering the Future Los Angeles | London | New Delhi Singapore | Washington DC SAGE Engineering & Materials Science Collection

4 SAGE and IMechE: Engineering the Future Los Angeles | London | New Delhi Singapore | Washington DC IMechE – the Past Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) Founded in 1847 by George Stephenson and other mechanical engineers: “To enable engineers to meet …and correspond, and by a mutual interchange of ideas respecting improvements in the various branches of mechanical science to increase their knowledge, and to give impulse to inventions likely to be useful to the world.” Distinguished members of the IMechE and contributors to the Proceedings of the IMechE: George Stephenson – the father of the railways Charles William Siemens – established the telegraph network, and was part of the Siemens family who started the famous German company of that name Joseph Whitworth – famous for precision manufacturing, including rifling of weapons Frank Whittle – the father of jet propulsion Charles Algernon Parsons – invented the steam turbine, used in propulsion of ships and power generation (and still used to generate most of our electricity) Rudolph Diesel – invented the diesel engine

5 SAGE and IMechE: Engineering the Future Los Angeles | London | New Delhi Singapore | Washington DC IMechE – the Present and the Future ●Membership organization of 80,000 members worldwide ●Vision: “To improve the world through engineering” ●Campaigns to promote mechanical engineering around 4 key themes: Energy, Education, Environment and Transport

6 SAGE and IMechE: Engineering the Future Los Angeles | London | New Delhi Singapore | Washington DC Why SAGE and IMechE? ●SAGE and IMechE both believe passionately in importance of disseminating scholarly research to the benefit of society ●SAGE growing rapidly as an STM publisher ●SAGE views Engineering as an area of major future growth
