Apologies for multiple postings)

Dear colleagues,


Due to many requests, editors decided to extend the deadline for submission of full papers to Sunday 31 March 2019.


The International Journal of Advanced Robotic Systems (IJARS) is a peer-reviewed, open access, international journal focusing on the full spectrum of robotics research. The journal is comprised of fourteen key Topic Areas, each led by an expert Topic Editor in the field.

Impact Factor: 0.952
Indexed using Web of Science, Clarivate Analytics: Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), DOAJ, Scopus, and EBSCO.

Details are available at the following website: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__journals.sagepub.com_home_arx&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=S-GNtgfx5Xbb6sTyr_xdfXNYp1a4qLruuVFqdCAG7sg&s=RTHa0y6FuoVmb4Fp_OEEUHdXgn_2fc0gU2Z8ykmjdsc&e=

IJARS is now calling for papers on “Special Collection on Open Source Robotics”. Please, see the call for Papers for details of this special issue at:


It would be our great pleasure if you could submit your paper to this special collection.

** Special Collection on Open Source Robotics **


Currently we are living a revolution in Robotics that is closely related to the use of Open Source Software and Hardware. The creation of communities around areas of interest in Robotics provides a development model that promotes the diffusion and standardization of technologies. The establishment of such standards provides an effective and convenient method to disseminate implementations of algorithms and models, which otherwise could not be carried out, which allow the reproduction and comparison of results, advancing technology and science in Robotics. This philosophy of free knowledge is emerging from academic environments to be adopted by the industry, as a way to optimize their development and business models. The emergence of community makers, 3D printing, the emergence of Open Source standards such as ROS or YARP, or initiatives such as ROS Industrial are a revolution in the way we approach the development of robotic technology.

Novel theoretical approaches or practical applications of all aspects involving open source robotics are welcomed. Contributions shall contribute to the understanding of the value of an open source approach.
