International Journal of Collaborative Engineering
The International Journal of Collaborative Engineering promotes and fosters scholarly discussion on the emerging subject of collaborative decision making in the engineering discipline. Collaborative engineering studies the interactive process of engineering collaboration, whereby multiple interested stakeholders resolve conflicts, bargain for individual or collective advantages, agree upon courses of action, and/or attempt to craft joint outcomes which serve their mutual interests.
The International Journal of Collaborative Engineering emphasis is on the implications that collaborative consensus-building activities have on both the efficiency of technical teams and the quality of their results. This perspective acknowledges the complexity of collaborative engineering as an interface between decision and negotiation processes as well as in the assimilation of social and technical aspects of engineering activities operating in parallel over different time-space and discipline scales.
