Release of the Open Journal of Power Electronics

In 1996, the SOBRAEP Deliberative Council proposed the release of a Journal, focused on Power Electronics and Electrical Drives, the Open Journal of Power Electronics. The first issue of the Open Journal of Power Electronics was released on June 1996 (vol. 1, n. 1), with the main objective of disseminating the national researches in the field of Power Electronics, not only in the academic circles, but also in the productive/industrial environment.
Major transformations were accomplished from 2003, both in terms of formatting, and, mainly, implementing a fully electronic system to submit and analyze papers for the Open Journal of Power Electronics, called iSOBRAEP system.
The goal of increasing the visibility of the Open Journal of Power Electronics has become feasible with the development of the iSOBRAEP system, and with the transformation of the publication mainly to the electronic form, Open Access, distributed over the Internet, it was intended to increase the visibility of the Open Journal of Power Electronics, increasing its impact factor in bibliographical references.
In 2018, several improvements were made aiming the indexation in the Scopus Database. The submission system was moved to the well known ScholarOne Manuscripts and a new website was built, including the Journal database. Another improvement was the DOI (Digital Object Identifier) atribution to all published papers by the Open Journal of Power Electronics since its first edition in 1996.
