Fashioned as a high-impact, high-visibility, top-echelon publication, this new ground-breaking journal - TECHNOLOGY - will feature the development of cutting-edge new technologies in a broad array of emerging fields of science and engineering. The content will have an applied science and technological slant with a focus on both innovation and application to daily lives. It will cover diverse disciplines such as health and life science, energy and environment, advanced materials, technology-based manufacturing, information science and technology, and marine and transportations technologies.

From the Editors

Martin Yarmush & Mehmet Toner

Dear Colleague:

Certain clinical journals do provide high impact, but only after all the translational issues have been resolved to fully realize the application in patients. This "Catch-22" plagues applied scientists and engineers in all of today's important disciplines without exception, but especially those working in the fields related to the Life Sciences and Health.

This limitation also has a negative impact on the entire process of research transfer and commercialization (or research translation). Such transfer of new, innovative technological ideas is best served by a proper means of publication of the initial scientific breakthrough, where the proof of concept is established and the actual innovation occurs and proceeds. Publication of these important advances tend, in our opinion, to suffer from, on the one hand, non-appreciative policies by the above-mentioned high impact journals, and on the other hand, from the fact that somewhat less desirable, lower impact journals typically fail to garner adequate attention, and often lead to a lack of adequate funding. The resulting consequences of both constitute a virtual graveyard where many truly innovative ideas are buried.

In response to these growing concerns, which we know many of our esteemed international colleagues share, we are delighted to announce a new, high impact-striving yet inclusive by definition journal, called TECHNOLOGY. In this new journal, we aim to capture all work that is innovative, enabling, transformative, and early in its development with adequate proof of concept. We wish to emphasize the technology and its impact, and are not necessarily concerned if the paper is not "hypothesis driven".

Our publishing partners, Imperial College Press and World Scientific (ICP / WSPC), are fiercely dedicated to making the new TECHNOLOGY journal attain, a high impact factor as soon as possible, an effort which both of us and our colleagues on the Editorial Board intend to support wholeheartedly. This, of course, includes a very aggressive marketing and outreach plan. In this respect, we feel that the global reach and operation of ICP / WSPC, with their special strength in Asian Emerging markets, many of which have become hotbeds of innovation and new technological ideas, make this journal endeavor especially exciting.
