About this Journal
The Journal of Aviation Technology and Engineering (JATE) is an Open Access, refereed publication serving the needs of collegiate and industrial scholars and researchers in the multidisciplinary fields of aviation technology, engineering, and human factors. A key focus of the JATE is to promote the bridging of these fields by publishing scholarly articles related to the integration of theory and application in an academically rigorous, theoretically sound manner. This process may consist of researchers working collaboratively toward a mutually supported end product or process improvement that is properly conceptualized using theory and made practical
JATE publishes both quantitative and qualitative research articles. Relative topics include air carrier and general aviation flight and ground operations, the technological aspects of airport operation, aviation maintenance and engineering, aviation human factors and applied training research in both collegiate and industry settings, and significant developmental and historical topics related to these areas.
The JATE is an Open Access journal. This means that articles are free for users, immediately on publication. In a global industry such as aviation, with many practitioners as well as academic researchers, the founders of the JATE regard free access to evidence-based research as essential for the development of the discipline.
Open Access publication is made possible by generous support from the Purdue University College of Technology and the James and Sherry Raisbeck Foundation.
