There is good news from Dr. Anthony Doyle, Senior Editor Engineering, Springer Verlag, London. On May 30, 2012, Dr. Doyle informs me that the Handbook on Performability has set a sort of record as follows:

“You are surely aware that your book Handbook of Performability Engineering is published in both print and electronic formats. Today, we would like to update you on the chapter downloads of your eBook on Springer Link, Springer's online platform.

Since its online publication on Aug 27, 2008, Handbook of Performability Engineering has received a total of 28810 chapter download requests. Over the last year(s) the download figures have been as follows:

 

YEAR USAGE
2011 7921
2010 8119
2009 9580

 

As you can see, in addition to the print book, the electronic version offers a broad readership and increased visibility for your work. This is especially noticeable in the long run: statistical data shows that the usage of electronic publications will continue to be stable for years.

Thank you again for publishing with us. We are very pleased to disseminate your book among the scientific community and look forward to working with you on your next book or journal article."

Obviously, this is indicative that the Handbook on Performability Engineering has been received very well by the international scientific community and there is keen interest in the subject matter.

Encouraged by the response of the scientific community to Handbook on Performability Engineering, it has been decided to bring out a Book Series on Performability Engineering. This Book Series on Performability Engineering shall be published by Scrivener Publishing LLC, U.S.A. which has a strategic partnership with John Wiley & Sons whereby they are responsible for all global print and electronic sales of Scrivener Publishing. The editors of this book Series are myself, and Professor John D. Andrews, of Nottingham University, U.K. who is also one of the Editors-in-Chief of International Journal of Performability Engineering. We would be happy to receive proposals of books from the prospective authors/editors in the area of performability engineering, viz, on quality, reliability, maintainability, safety, risk, and sustainability. The format for preparation of a detailed proposal can be had from the undersigned on request and has been also provided elsewhere in this issue.

We are also encouraged by the orders that we have been receiving from many countries for the copies of the papers that have been published in the past in various issues of the International Journal of Performability Engineering.

We also like to inform our readers that there has been a steady increase in the flow of papers to this journal and due to increase in the quantum of acceptable papers, we have increased the number pages per issue from 100 earlier, to 120 pages from May 2012 and we have now been publishing 10-11 papers per issue since May 2012 and all papers have been reviewed and revised to keep the standard of the journal very high. A status report on IJPE follows on the next page.

In the present issue also, we have published 11 papers and we hope that the readers of IJPE will find the papers presented here interesting and stimulating which is the objective of this journal.
