The Technology Interface International Journal (TIIJ) is the latest addition to the list of official journals of the International Association of Journals and Conferences (IAJC). IAJC is a ground-breaking, umbrella organization consisting of three official journals, several affiliate journals and number of other professional organizations.


TIIJ— formerly the Technology Interface Journal—has been publishing articles supporting the entire engineering technology community since 1996.  The substance of TIJ will continue its dedication to the broad field of engineering technology, while adopting the selective, peer-reviewed process used by IAJC for its other two journals:  the International Journal of Modern Engineering (IJME) and the International Journal of Engineering Research and Innovation (IJERI).  And starting with the fall 2010 issue, TIIJ will appear both in-print and online.


Like the other IAJC journals, TIIJ will be steered by the distinguished IAJC Board of Directors and be supported by an international review board consisting of prominent individuals representing many well-known universities, colleges and corporations in the United States and abroad.  In order to maintain the high standards of IAJC, articles that appear in the TIIJ will have been subjected to the same rigorous review process. This includes blind reviews by three or more members of the international editorial review board, followed by a second round of reviews for revised manuscripts, and a detailed review by the TIIJ editors.
