Control Engineering Practice is IFAC's applications journal, published monthly. It contains high-quality papers relating to the application of control theory and its supporting technologies, in all areas of automation. Papers, whether originating from IFAC events or directly submitted, are rigorously reviewed by an international panel of referees. Additionally, all papers presented at IFAC events are recorded in the journal, providing a comprehensive reference source. Only papers submitted in English can be considered. Further, the journal provides a Conference Calendar of all IFAC events.
Control Engineering Practice Editor-in-Chief: Prof. Andreas Kugi Automation and Control Institute, Vienna Technical University (Austria)
Annual Reviews in Control is IFAC's review journal, published twice a year. The Journal contains review articles selected from the material of the most recent IFAC Symposia, conferences and workshops and of the latest Congress. It will also increasingly carry review papers specifically commissioned for the Journal.

Another new addition to the IFAC family of journals. EAAI is an international journal that publishes papers relating to intelligent real-time automation. It is published six times a year and features directly submitted papers as well as many papers originating from IFAC meetings. All papers are rigorously reviewed prior to publication. Regular special issues are published on new and emerging topics of interest.
Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence Editor-in-Chief: Prof. Bernard Grabot. Tarbes, France
This Journal has recently been added to the IFAC family. Increased in 2002 from six to eight issues per year, the Journal publishes papers relating to all aspects of chemical process control, including many papers arising from the regular IFAC meetings in process control. All papers are rigorously reviewed, and the reputation and quality of the journal are among the highest of any in control engineering.

Mechatronics is an international journal that publishes papers relating to the multidisciplinary area of design and use of advanced automated systems, where the synergistic integration of mechanics, electronics, and control plays a fundamental role. It is published ten times a year and features directly submitted papers as well as those originating from IFAC meetings. All papers are rigorously reviewed prior to publication. Special issues are published on new and emerging topics of interest.
In addition to the six IFAC journals, several journals have an affiliation with IFAC. They are usually associated with a Technical Area. Authors and conference organizers are encouraged to submit their papers to one of these journals and organizers are encouraged to contact the editors of these journals with a view to arranging publication of some of the papers presented at a technical meeting.
It should however be noted that the six IFAC journals take precedence over the affiliated journals for publication of material presented at IFAC meetings.
The following journals are currently affiliated journals of IFAC:
