John Wiley & Sons and WINDPOWER Team Up on Scientific Track . . .   

Wiley continues to partner with the Scientific Track of AWEA's WINDPOWER conference. Through the arrangement, the top final papers from WINDPOWER’s Scientific Session presenters are published in Wind Energy, an international journal for progress and applications in wind power conversion technology. The arrangement will also result in the creation of an archive of the leading papers presented at WINDPOWER. A rigorous peer-review - conducted by Wind Energy’s international Editorial Board - will determine which papers will be published.

Dr. Paul Veers of NREL's National Wind Technology Center:
“The Scientific Track provides conference attendees a chance to see the breadth, depth, and creativity of the research going on in the U.S. and around the world as it happens. Leading edge work will highlight important issues that are still unresolved, and will reveal innovations that could enable the next great strides forward in wind technology. Authors have the opportunity to publish their work in a quality archival journal, Wind Energy, to maximize value and accessibility for the long term. It is a win-win for authors and attendees of the WINDPOWER conference.”

Dr. Douglas Adams of Purdue University:
“This partnership between AWEA and John Wiley & Sons definitely adds significant value in my participation at WINDPOWER because it amplifies our ability to reach out to researchers around the country and the globe,” says Dr Adams, whose paper last year on structural health monitoring of wind turbines received publication. “WINDPOWER enables us to engage an incredibly diverse and knowledgeable group of researches and practitioners from all parts of the community, . . . [and] the peer-reviewed archival journal paper in Wind Energy allows us to reach out to scholars from around the world for years to come.”
