Aims and Scopenext

(1) Aims

A basic structure of EJAM comprises three components. EJAM presents these described as follows:

  1. (1) General Articles which broadly related to maintenance
  2. (2) Academic Articles focused on the structure of maintenology
  3. (3) New Technology that are to put globally advanced technologies on a common ground and to discuss its sophistication.

Briefly, General Articles aims for building a concept of maintenology, Academic Articles is for academic systematization of maintenance, and New Technology is for sophistication of maintenance technology. A concept of maintenance has notionally sustains both Academic Articles and New Technology which complements each other and plays the role in achieving a plant safety in combining with the two.
