Systems Engineering (SE Journal)

Systems Engineering, INCOSE's scholarly journal, is a primary source of multidisciplinary information for the systems engineering and management of products and services, and processes of all types. Systems engineering activities involve the technologies, processes, and systems management approaches needed for: definition of systems, including identification of user requirements and technological specifications; development of systems, including conceptual architectures, tradeoff of design concepts, configuration management during system development, integration of new systems with legacy systems, and integrated product and process development; and deployment of systems, including operational test and evaluation, maintenance over an extended lifecycle, and reengineering. Modern systems, including both products and services, are often very knowledge intensive, and are found in both the public and private sectors. The journal emphasizes strategic and program management of these, and the information and knowledge base for knowledge principles, knowledge practices, and knowledge perspectives for the engineering of systems. Definitive case studies involving systems engineering practice are especially welcome. 

 Systems Engineering is included in both the INSPEC and COMPENDEX indices.

Publication Schedule

The Journal is produced four times a year - January, April, July, and October. 

Members must first login on the INCOSE website in order to access the online journal using this direct link:  Wiley Interscience - Systems Engineering to the site. You do NOT need to login on the Wiley site once you are connected to the site.

INSIGHT is the magazine of International Council on Systems Engineering. It is published four times per year.  In 1993, INSIGHT was a newsletter and contained reports by the various groups, chapters, BOD.  As the organization grew, and we had more substantive things to say INSIGHT changed  to feature theme sections dedicated to providing informative articles on the state of the art and practice in systems engineering. It also contains status and information about INCOSE's technical work programs, and events, editorials, book reviews, trends, and how-to-do articles that are pertinent to the many aspects of a systems engineer's job.

INSIGHT is now a Practitioners' Magazine published by Wiley and can be found in Wiley Online Library and in Connect.  You must be logged in through the INCOSE Member Login in order to gain access to these Member Only Areas:  Wiley Online Library or INCOSE Connect.

The Archive of INSIGHTs from 1993 through 2014 is available to members only at INCOSE Connect, Library.
