Aims and Scope

The following topics are within the scope of the journal: Methods for Reliability and Probabilistic Safety Assessment; Model and Parameter Uncertainties; Aleatory and Epistemic Uncertainties, Sensitivity Analysis, Data Collection and Analysis; Physics of Failure; Engineering Judgments and Expert Opinions; Human Reliability; Test and Maintenance Policies; Models for Ageing and Life Extension; Systems Analysis of the Impact of Earthquakes, Fires, Tornadoes, Winds, Floods, etc.; Codes, Standards and Safety Criteria; Operator Decision Support Systems; Software Reliability; Methods and Applications of Automatic Fault Detection and Diagnosis; Dynamic Reliability; Design and Evaluation of Man-Machine Systems and Human Interfaces; Design Innovation for Safety and Reliability; Safety Culture; Accident Investigation and Management. The journal also does normally publish articles that involve the practical application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques in all branches of reliability engineering, and using the fuzzy sets theory and related non-probabilistic methods that they contribute significantly to the solution of substantive problems related to the analysis of real systems.

The journal will contain contributed material in the form of original research papers, review articles, industrial case studies, safety recommendations, and short communications.
