JOURNALS OF STRATEGIC TECHNOLOGIES

KACST has been working on an ecosystem that would enhance the success of National Plans for Science, Technology and Innovation. One component of such a complex ecosystem is to provide knowledge about the 15 strategic technologies for Saudi Arabia. KACST started with its partner, Springer, in 2011 to publish 5 journals; Applied Water Science, Journal of Petroleum Exploration and Production Technology, Applied Petrochemical Research, Applied Nanoscience, and 3 Biotech. Two more journals, Materials for Renewable & Sustainable Energy and Complex & Intelligent Systems, have been lately added to the previous ones in 2013 and 2014, respectively. KACST, by publishing these journals, is providing the researchers in Saudi Arabia and worldwide with the latest developments and research in the areas of these journals, in addition of, making them available for researchers to publish their research results. The journals are open access and publish without charging the authors.
