“Professional Engineering Publishing, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (www.imeche.org), has launched Engineering Conferences Online (ECO), a new online publishing service for conference organizers. ECO (http://eco.pepublishing.com) provides conference organizers with a new way of disseminating important engineering research that would normally be very difficult or impossible to locate in traditional book or CD formats. Papers in ECO will usually be available free of charge on an open access basis and will be fully referenced using DOIs.
ECO has been designed specifically to meet the demands of hosting conference proceedings online. Conferences on ECO feature further information about each conference including links to the conference website, event location, and event date. For the purposes of ECO a new website architecture has been created to ensure that the service was designed specifically for conferences rather than replicating the structure of an electronic journal. ECO plans to forge new partnerships with conference organizers that will give their content a much wider readership in the future.”
