The European Turbomachinery Conferences have been managed since 1995 by an informal committee representing a number of European member states. More recently this committee has been turned into a legal entity, the European Turbomachinery Society (Euroturbo). Euroturbo is a not for profit international scientific organization, whose main objective is to provide and facilitate the European and worldwide dissemination and harmonization of information, knowledge and technology in the field of turbomachinery and turbomachinery based power systems. Its intention is to offer its skills and expertise to all European National Agencies involved in the preparation and development of projects in the field, while supporting the related education and training programs.
Among other events, Euroturbo manages the European Turbomachinery Conferences (ETC). The success of this series of conferences lays in the quality of its single blind review process, which is managed by a member of the Executive Board of Euroturbo (the Review Chair). The Review Chair, together with his team of Review Organizers, ensures the scientific quality of the manuscripts submitted for review to all scientific events.
The proceedings of the international conferences edited by Euroturbo are indexed in the Elsevier Scopus citation database (since 2005) and are registered with the following serial publication numbers (ISSN): 2313-0067 (paper back) and 2410-4833 (CD-ROM). They are also included in the Web of Science Journal of Citation Report of Thomson Reuters (since 2011). The Euroturbo review system procedure complies with the COPE Principles of Transparency and Best Practice in Scholarly Publishing (recognized publication ethics and malpractice statement, details in http://publicationethics.org/resources/guidelines).
