The International Journal of Automotive Engineering

The International Journal of Automotive Engineering (IJAE) is an English-language journal published by the Society of Automotive Engineering of Japan, Inc. (JSAE) as a forum for outstanding and informative papers in all fields of automotive engineering, technology, and science. The IJAE is available free of charge on the website of the JSAE, and everything from contribution to evaluation is performed via an online system.

The aims of the JSAE in publishing this journal are as follows.

  • To promote automotive engineering through the worldwide exchange of academic articles between engineers and researchers
  • To share technical information with international readers
  • To record important and long-lasting knowledge as an academic archive

We hope to contribute to the development of automotive engineering by calling for papers widely from both inside and outside Japan and by publishing those of the highest quality as selected by the top engineers and researchers of each field.

The International Journal of Automotive Engineering embodies the following principles.


The IJAE aims to cover all the main areas of automotive engineering.

  • Heat engine
